With Fast and Furious 6 delivering yet another box office haul for the high speed franchise earlier this year, Universal is well underway in producing a seventh sequel, once again reuniting the original cast and adding a few new faces. Among such faces are action/adventure actor Jason Statham, and according to recent reports from Variety, Kurt Russell! Russell’s role has yet to be disclosed in any detail, but apparently it was first offered to Denzel Washington, so it may be a pretty important piece of the plot. The film is being directed by James Wan and will bring back Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and Tyrese Gibson. It is set for release next summer.
