UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., July 13 (UPI) -- The U.S. premiere of Vin Diesel's original short film "Los Bandoleros" is set to coincide with the DVD release of his blockbuster "Fast & Furious."

Universal Studios Home Entertainment said "Los Bandoleros" will be included on the Blu-ray and DVD release of "Fast & Furious" July 28.

"The (short) film tells the intriguing back story about the characters and events leading up to the explosive oil truck heist in 'Fast & Furious,'" Universal said in a news release.

"Bandoleros" features "Fast & Furious" cast members Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tego Calderon, Don Omar and Sung Kang.

Diesel, Kang, John Ortiz, Laz Alonso and director Justin Lin are slated to attend the short film's premiere Thursday at California's Universal CityWalk, Universal said.
