Just a couple days after it was announced that Tony Jaa joined the latest addition of the Fast and Furious franchise, it was revealed that legendary actor Kurt Russell is in talks to star in Fast and Furious 7.
Variety reported the news on the film, which will be directed by James Wan (The Conjuring). It’s not clear who Russell will be playing in the film, as we know, from the last movie, that Jason Statham will be playing the film’s main villain. But it’s safe to assume he’ll be playing a major role in the film.
Russell’s role was initially offered to Denzel Washington, but he passed on the role. Fast and Furious 7 is set to be released on July 11, 2014.
