Fast & Furious 7 gearing up for summer start?
Fast & Furious 6 isn't in cinemas yet. Fast & Furious 7 is nonetheless revving up already...
We're just over a month away from the return of the Fast & Furious franchise to the big screen, with Fast & Furious 6 widely expected to be one of the summer's big hits. It reunites Vin Diesel, The Rock and Paul Walker, along with some rather speedy cars, and director Justin Lin is calling the shots once more.
Lin had been attached to Terminator 5, of course, but passed on the project in the end to return to Fast & Furious. And he'd hinted before, back when there were plans to shoot two more films back to back, that he wanted to do Fast & Furious 7 as well.
Turns out, he might get his wish. While the idea of filming back to back was ultimately abandoned, it seems nonetheless that Fast & Furious 7 is being fast tracked. Vin Diesel, on his Facebook page, broke the news that the next film was already being prepared. "Filming begins this summer in LA, where it all started... talk about a studio in sync with the audience...", he noted.
We've heard rumours too that Jason Statham - the mighty one himself - may be added to the cast for Fast & Furious 7. It's fair to say that Vin Diesel at the very least is involved, and we'll post more updated on the film as we get them...
