However, now he’s set to join one of the biggest franchises on the planet, as he’ll star in Furious 7, alongside fellow newcomer, Charlize Theron. While Theron will be the main villain, there’s little info on who Scott will play, but he did reveal on Instagram, ‘I can’t say too much, but I get to play a new character who operates under Kurt Russell in the movie, which is incredible, because Kurt was a total childhood hero of mine growing up. Very much looking forward to learning a thing or two from such an original and cool guy.’
In Furious 7, Russell’s Mr. Nobody was a mysterious government agent who does a deal with Vin Diesel and co. to help them if they help him locate a dangerous hacking device. It sounds like Eastwood will be involved with the same organisation.
The likes of Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson will all returns. Shooting kicks off soon for an April 2017 release.
