Vin Diesel has been taking a page straight from his 'Fast Six' co-star Dwayne Johnson's playbook -- Johnson has been posting pics from the set of Brett Ratner's 'Hercules' all summer, and lately, Diesel has been giving us a peek at the crew on the set of 'Fast and Furious 7,' getting us ever-more excited for the upcoming seventh installment of the franchise. And this time, the gang's (mostly) all here!
Fast and Furious 7
'Fast and Furious 7' is already one week into filming in Georgia, and Vin Diesel has been keeping his fans updated every step of the way. After releasing the first official photos from the seventh installment, the star has debuted another sneak peek, this time of a "more somber moment."
Dangerous car chases through heavily populated urban environments has always been a cornerstone of the wonderfully ludicrous 'Fast and Furious' series and the latest film is certainly not going to be an exception. Filming is currently underway on 'Fast and Furious 7' and the production is looking for some fans to fill out some key scenes.
It's true! In keeping with the strange continuity of the franchise, Lucas Black is being brought back as Sean Boswell for 'Fast and Furious 7' to co-star alongside franchise regulars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Known for his work in the horror genre, James Wan has stepped behind the camera for something a little more action-packed with 'Fast and Furious 7.' We've gotten a peek at some of the interesting new cars being used in the film, but now star Vin Diesel is giving us a sneak preview of his own with these new photos of his character Dom (alongside co-star Paul Walker) on the set of the sequel.
'Fast and Furious 7' keeps adding to its cast, with Tony Jaa, Rhonda Rousey and Kurt Russell all recent additions. But now the 'Fast' family has grown even larger as Djimon Hounsou is the latest to join the sequel.
A few weeks ago, we reported that Denzel Washington had turned down a role in the upcoming 'Fast and Furious 7.' Now, Variety is reporting that the great Kurt Russell is in talks to step into the part instead. Goodbye, Mr. Washington. We love you, but this is a case where you will not be missed.
Though it may lack the punch of the Ben Affleck in 'Man of Steel 2' casting news, 'Fast and Furious 7' has upped its ranks by getting Tony Jaa to join the film. For those who've never seen Jaa in action, this is a very good thing.
'Fast and Furious 7' hasn't made a lot of noise lately, even though it starts shooting this fall and is scheduled to hit theaters next July. We don't even know if Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be done filming 'Hercules' in time to appear in the film. But we have just gotten the first big new casting news, as UFC star Ronda Rousey is in negotiations to join the cast.
As the 'Fast and Furious' series has progressed, the cast has steadily increased in size and star power. Just look at the line-up of this summer's 'Fast and Furious 6,' which somehow managed to wrangle up every cast member from across the franchise while adding a few more faces. Well, it looks like another character will be joining the crew for 'Fast and Furious 7,' but he will not be played by Denzel Washington...because he turned down the role.
