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.

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.
Spoiler alert! If you're a fan of the 'Fast and Furious' franchise but haven't seen 'Fast and Furious 6,' you're kind of out of luck. We'll be delving into 'Fast and Furious 7' a bit here, specifically in regards to Jason Statham's impending bad guy. So if you fall into that unlikely group, stay away.
'Fast and Furious 6' hits theaters next week, May 24, bringing back some of your favorite franchise mainstays to go up against Luke Evans' band of vigilante auto-mercenaries. But, without a doubt, one of the best parts of this new adventure is the epic "cat fight" between Michelle Rodriguez's Letty and Gina Carano's Riley. To prep you for the awesome action you'll see, check out this new behind-the-scenes footage of the bombshell-filled sequences.
One of the greatest franchises in movie history is the 'Fast & Furious' franchise (sorry 'Star Wars') with Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. The high octane films have generated millions, so it's no surprise video game publisher and developer Electronic Arts is looking to enter the box office race with it's own long-running franchise, 'Need For Speed.'
