Universal is keen to get the cameras rolling on Fast & Furious 7 as quickly as possible, in the hope they can get it in cinemas next summer. However before then there are some new cast members to add.
Tony Jaa signed up a couple of days ago, and now one of the other roles has gone, as Variety reports that Kurt Russell is in talks for the film. There’s no news on exactly who he will play. Jason Statham is on major villain duty, so it’s most likely Kurt will either be some sort of boss on the good guys’ side, or a hoary older petrolhead there to give the young guns a run for their money.
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson all return, with James Wan directing. It’ll be out July 2014.
