Lucas Black returns, Fast & Furious 8 and 9 happening?
Lucas Black signs back up to the Fast & Furious series, as reports suggest Universal is already planning Fast & Furious 8 and 9...
As we reported yesterday, work is now underway on filming Fast & Furious 7, with James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious) in the director's chair. Filming has only been going a day or two, so there's time for some casting news. Which is coincidental, because we just happen to have some.
And it's this: Lucas Black will be returning for Fast & Furious 7. He played the role of Sean Boswell in The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift, and he's back for the new movie. It's a much bigger franchise than when he last appeared in it.
It won't be the last we see of the character of Sean Boswell either. Reports suggest that Lucas Black has a contract that will also cover Fast & Furious 8 and Fast & Furious 9. The two further movies haven't been confirmed by Universal, but it's hardly a surprise that it's aggressively pressing ahead with them. At this rate, it's going to be a bloody big boxset in about ten years' time.
As we hear more, we'll let you know...
