Fast & Furious 7

Fast & Furious 7 Information

Fast and Furious 7 is an upcoming action film directed by horror director James Wan. It is the seventh installment in the Fast and the Furious film series. The film stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and Jason Statham. Filming will commence in September 2013.


After the events that transpired in the previous film, Dominic (Vin Diesel) and his crew return stateside, finally free and begin to get their lives in order. However, when Owen Shaw's brother Ian Shaw (Jason Statham), who is seeking vengeance, kills Han to send Dom a message, the gang gears back up to chase down the man who killed one of their own.



On April 4, 2013, Justin Lin, the franchise's director since The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006), announced that he would not return to direct a Fast & Furious 7, as the studio wanted to produce the film on an accelerated schedule for release in summer 2014 which would have required Lin to begin pre-production on the sequel while performing post-production on Fast & Furious 6 which he considered would affect the quality of the final product. Despite the usual two to three year gap between the previous installments, Universal chose to pursue a sequel quicker due to having fewer reliable franchises than its competitor studios. Also in April, James Wan was announced as the sequel's director, with Moritz returning to produce and Morgan returning to write the script, his fifth in the series. Diesel and Walker were also confirmed to return to star.

Johnson said that if Universal pursued the accelerated development of a seventh film, he would be unable to participate due to scheduling conflicts with filming on Hercules: The Thracian Wars. Nonetheless, he confirmed that he will return for the film. On April 16, 2013, Diesel announced that the sequel would be released on July 11, 2014, with production scheduled to begin in August 2013. In May 2013, Diesel said that the sequel would feature Los Angeles, Tokyo and the Middle East as locations. In August 2013, it was reported that Denzel Washington had turned down a small role in the film, and that Universal was looking for another big star to take the part which would play a larger role in an eighth film. In August 2013, professional fighter Ronda Rousey was confirmed to be in negotiations to join the cast. Thai martial arts actor Tony Jaa has been confirmed to join the cast, making his Hollywood debut.

Filming has begun in Atlanta, Georgia, with a casting call issued. Abu Dhabi has also been confirmed as a filming location, as the production crew will benefit from the emirate's 30% rebate scheme.
