‘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.

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

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. I thought 6 was going to be the last one. Sheesh. Oh well, Jason Statham would be a cool addition

  2. I think this is turning into the Expendables with Cars in it. Sheesh. Who’s next. I think FAF is going to end at 10 I just have a feeling….

  3. Could he be playing his transporter role in this one?

    • I was just talking to a buddy about this 2 days ago. I think a “Fast”/”Transporter” crossover would be pretty cool. As long as they don’t do any stupid car stunts like the bomb removal car flip thing from Transporter 2. That was so retarded.

      • yes, that would be awesome if they merge Frank into faf and you are right, those were the cheesiest stunts that wasn’t even necessary.

  4. You know, it makes sense for him to be in it since it’s possibly going to be taken place in Europe (those of you who saw the special scene knows what I’m talking about). But still, 7?

  5. If there is an action movie with cars, then Jason Statham will most likely be in it…

    crank one and two, death race, transporter one two and three, italian job, the mechanic,

    just about everyone of his movies has him in a car going 90 and shooting, so him in the new FAF movie? Not surprising…

  6. The best one, has always been part one . Every new installment has been shying away from racing and more of an action, bang bang movie. I want more cars, engine, tunning mostly cars the general public has, civics, 300zx, 350z, rx8s, rx7s. and so on…

    • I agree, although Fast Five was really good. It needs to include more racing, and cars. Get back to the roots of the series.

    • i agree fast 1 as and will alway be the best cause with out it how hell would the fanchaise even be were it is today with all it movie topping box office that what they needd to stick to cars and street style a little lest talking more racing and they need to keep the orginal in too dom ,letty, mia ,brain ,leon are only orginal left …i need to see michelle (letty ) back in fast 6 been too long as for JS i am all for it would be nice twist if he with letty and we can have a race down with him an dom not fist down but car race :)

      • You all dont understand I understand why that are straying away from the street racing of the movies. Its cause stupid people are going out there and trying to do street racing like they see on the movies and they are getting themselves kill cause of it. I admit I would love to see more street racing in the movies but you have to understand they dont wnt people being stupid and trying to street racing stuff they see in the movies in real life and then going and getting into car wrecks and dieing cause of it.

  7. I hope this is true because this would be fricken awesome!

  8. if Statham joined the cast man it would be friking awesome@!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Vin asked us on his FB who we wanted to see him work with next, and the majority of us said Jason. If this is true, then its just another fine example of him using his page to give us what we want. ;D

    • Do you have a link to where he asked that? I can’t find that on his Facebook page.

    • Forget Jason what they really should do is throw Ricky Bobby in. The movie could use a little shake and bake!

  10. Who cars about tuners! More muscle cars please!

  11. Jason Statham in Fast and Furious…….yes please!!!

  12. This needs to be done!

  13. I beg to differ with almost everyone in this, the fast and furious have gotten better over time. With Fast 5 being the best of the series why would you want more of the computer graphics racing. It has just enough racing to make a badass action/racing movie. I think the chase at the end with the safe was crazy! So yeah they are going in the best direction at this point.

  14. I love Statham he has proven he can handle a car in Death Race and The Transporter. I saw bring em on.

  15. I love these movies and they get better and better. I say bring it on. Adding Statham just adds icing to the cake so to speak.

  16. Fast Five was great.

    Adding Jason Statham in Fast and Furious 6 and maybe 7 might make these movies get more money than Fast Five.

    I hope The Rock and the rest of the cast returns for a sixth and seventh movie and maybe start off where Tokyo Drifts left off.

    Fast and Furious 6 & 7 might be the best movies in the series, no knows.

  17. You think they will ever end up bringing Lucas Black back to the movies or no?

  18. “…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).”…

    uh, glad you added the ‘specifically’ part, because we are all over 30 and love a good hot rod/action flick!

    and we vote for more muscle cars, less tuners, and no more/less action than in Fast 5. it was the perfect amount!

  19. Vin Diesel, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Jason Statham. Keep this up and the Fast and Furious franchise will have more action heroes than The Expendables film :/

  20. It would be kick ass if they could bring in jason statham and figure a way to tie the sixth movie in with deathrace!

  21. I don’t know who said that they want the movie to get back to how the first one was with more racing and less action,but that would suck.This franchise is evolving and most movie franchises “usually” don’t do that.Why get back to just racing?It has enough of that.I mean these characters have lives outside of just racing,now they’re moving up into bigger and better things.So as long as the stories are good,I’m all for a six and seven.

  22. i cant wait for the 2 i hope they never stop making them i owen all 5 of them and still watch them they better have paul,and his girl and vin tyrese and lud i like them all jason would be good in it too and they better have justin in more action is better and cars too love the guys an the cars and the girls are pretty too but they are getting better and better too cant wait too fast 6-20 i hope they never stop makeing these movies i really love them

  23. Oooh! I can’t wait! I am a HUGE F&F fan and I have been since the first movie! If there are 2 more movies in the works I can’t wait! And if Jason joins the cast that will make it all the better! Can’t wait 2 see what happens!

  24. Oooh! I can’t wait! I am a HUGE F&F fan and I have been since the first movie! If there are 2 more movies in the works I can’t wait! And if Jason joins the cast that will make it all the better!

  25. yes, yes, yes to jason statham! more muscle cars (no more of the girly cars that sound like bumblebees on steroids)! more paul walker and luda for sure! and what is with this person wanting it tied into deathrace? why would anyone want that?

  27. I just hope they don’t ruin the movies by dragging the story on and they better tie tokyo drift in. they are probably trying to cover up tokyo drift because it doesn’t fit just some food for thought

  28. I think Jason Statham is too dirty. I think he will corrupt the mix. I enjoy the cast just the way it is.

  29. Tokyo Drift, is that last one of the series. I don’t understand, why they made it that want and instead go with the story line. Should be good though to see how Tokyo Drift fits into it…
