‘Fast and Furious’ 6 & 7 Shooting At Once? Jason Statham Joining Cast?

Jason Statham Fast and Furious Fast and Furious 6 & 7 Shooting At Once? Jason Statham Joining Cast?

With the release of Fast Five DVD and Blu-ray, it’s only natural that there’s talk of where the franchise is headed, given the financial success of the fifth installment.

The talk today is a rather big two-part rumor: on the one hand it’s being (once again) floated that Fast and Furious 6 and Fast and Furious 7 will be a two-part story that takes place in Europe, and that the two films could shoot back-to-back (a la the Pirates of the Caribbean and Matrix franchises). However, the bigger news is that Jason Statham might be the next big action star to join the franchise.

All these rumors are coming our way via Twitch, which claims to have sources within Universal close to the Fast and the Furious franchise. It’s unclear if the studio will indeed greenlight production on both parts 6 and 7 – though it has already been established that Fast and Furious 6 is coming in 2013, and that Justin Lin will direct for a fourth consecutive time.

Statham, on the other hand, is the bigger question mark. It’s not yet known whether the actor would play a villain or yet another street racing anti-hero, or whether he would be featured in the sixth film, seventh film, or both (should they both be greenlit). It should be noted that Statham’s attachment is merely speculation right now, but one thing is for sure – fans of the franchise are going to be hoping and praying that this rumor becomes a reality.

At this point, the Fast and the Furious franchise is as much of a badass-fest as that other badass action movie franchise, The Expendables (which Statham stars in). Between Vin Diesel, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and to lesser extent Paul Walker and Tyrese Gibson, the addition of Statham – and of course, more great hot rod cars – would make Fast 6 & 7 testosterone-fests for the ages (…the ages of thirty and under, specifically).

Right now all this is strictly RUMOR, but an exciting rumor nonetheless. We’ll keep you updated on the status of Fast and Furious 6, the possibility of Fast and Furious 7, and Jason Statham’s possible attachment to franchise. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, Fast and Furious 6 will be in theaters on May 24th, 2013.

  1. Jason Statham in Fast and Furious would be awesome! I think they should stop though! If they make too many, they’re gonna just get worse and worse, like Police Academy and Rocky, especially if they move away from the street racing theme. Fast Five was okay, but I don’t really like heist movies. I liked number 4 and number 2 the best. But Fast Five was still better then the first one, and I still haven’t seen Tokyo Drift. Anyways, I read that number 6 was suppose to be about how Carter Varone gets out of prison and kidnaps Letty. That would be a good storyline. If they do make a number 7 though, I hope they end it there. The franchise has to end some time. If it move away from street racing, it’s gonna be a different movie anyways, which I think is what they are planning. But Jason Statham would be an excellent addition, no matter what part he plays.

    • never enough car racing addrinling rushing movies

      • yeah they should make more street racing

    • Yeaa I Think That They Shud Get A Little Bit More To Racing Side Of The Movie’s The Fast & The Furious Franchise Was Great For 1,2,3,4 Not So Much Fast Five But Mr.Lin Was Held Accountable For Showing Teens And Adults illegal street Racing So Now We Have People All Over The U.S. Doing Illegal Street races at indusrtial places but i think thats ok you know its an industrail place its not like there disturbing people And I Attend The Illegal Races Sometiimes Yea Theres Never Been A Crash People Never Died And Its Mostly About The THRILL In The FAST & THE FURIOUS FRANCHIS & IN REAL LIFE

    • I loved all of the Fast and Furious movies including Toyko Drift but I especially loved this last one. (5) I can’t wait to see where 6 & 7 go and as far as I am concerned they can keep going through 10 I will be happy. Are you kidding Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson 3 hot man and hot cars what more could a women ask for.

    • i def dont believe you just said jason statham would be a good addition to the fast & furious franchise. dont get me wrong i like him, but hes characters are always the same, it never changes and bringing that into FF franchise would pontentially ruined it.
      FF is moving away from street racing and moving it into heist genre because theres more of a story line and more possibility there than just underground racing, although its fun to watch. there is alot more action and drama in heist movies than racing movies. not to mention there is more emotion in heist.
      Lets be honest how much underground racing can you watch within the same movie franchise and how far can it really go?
      My take on statham; its a bad idea.

  2. Well it great I thank.i love these movies and I have too little boys that no all the movies need more racing but all an all keep making them and ill be there me and my boys

  3. WOW!!! Jason Statham? Really would be a brilliant addition! Cannot wait till these movies come out! I absolutely love the adrenaline-based plots! Dont stop there, but I will agree that it deffinately needs more racing, there is never enough! Havent missed a movie yet, and they are all brilliant, just needs more action and cars!

  4. Omg Jason Stathem should defo be in fast and furious 6 and 7 he would be amazing! Can’t wait for these films to come out, I love them, they get better and better and even more action packed each time ! Also as the actors age they’re getting hotter and hotter xxxx

  5. i think make 6 and show how it ends and then show us how DOm got into tokyo and show the last race against Sean and Dom. thats all i want to see. the tokyo drift came showed Brian and Dom in tokyo. im pretty sure theres few more to come. i just want to see the race between Sean and Dom and Brian and Dom. i know Brian can beat Dom.

  6. i personally love the show and hope they keep making them they did get off track on fast five but it was still amazing i was sitting at the edge of my seat the whole time and i cant wait till the next one comes out and it would be alsome if jason stathem joined the movie cause ive watched a couple of movies with him as the ain character and he was amazing and it doesnt matter which side of the law he is on cause he would make a great addition to the movie. even though i prefer him on dom and brian’s side but anyway cant wait till the next movie yay :))

  7. i think as long as vin and paul dont get caught in either film they should just keep making im a huge fan of the series anyways

  8. I think vin diesel is amazin and jason statham is amazing and the rock and paul walker u r all amazing

    • stop it your making blush..lol

  9. Statham is in fast 6 and will be in fast 7 fast 6 is pre Tokyo drift so Tokyo drift is the actual 6 movie

    • You got it wrong it would make FF Tokyo Drift the 7th. Cause Hon doesn’t go back till after the 6th movie or what would be better is Tokyo Drift would be right in the middle of 6 and 7.

      • No u are wrong, tokyo drift is 6th, fast five is 4th and 4 is 3rd

  10. If 6 was Tokyo Drift then Hon wouldn’t be in either of the new ones coming out.

  11. i think if jason statham would join the league it’s gonna be more thrill and suspense but i still hope that the actors will have much of exposure to act not just show their faces for a seconds. You know what i mean! sometimes too many character you have this dizziness of identifying their role or their part and before you know it the movie ends.

  12. great movies 1 though 5 6 was good but slow the pecs was slower then 1 2 3 4 5 and very little action needs more or at the same pace as the rest but liked it all the same

  13. All of the six movies have been amazing. the way they connected it all is perfect. they can’t stop making these movies. they don’t get boring. fast and the furious has came so far and they will keep getting better. Jason Statham is a good actor. I CAN’T WAIT FOR FAST 7!

  14. Are they making fast and the furious 8 and 9 and 10

  15. Jason S. will play the brother of Shawn
