‘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. JS in the movie? Hell yea! :D 6 & 7 back to back???… maybe. As long that 7 is the last one… than is ok with me :) Love Fast Five BTW. Better than Fast 1 2 3 & 4.

    • hell nahh i loved the fast and the furious !

  2. I love all Fast and Furious movies and I’m excited to see fast &furious 6 and 7 :)

  3. Heck yea, looking forward to seeing jason stathem in fast and furious 6 & 7. Hope they match him agains Vin Diesel, and have him open a can of whoop @$$ on Diesel.

  4. This is Great! Europe means they’ll have european cars! I can’t to see them feature Foreign Cars!

  5. i would like to see Fast and Furious 6 and Fast and Furious 7  jet il paul levesque triple h steve austin jean claude van damme would you please please please please please please please please

  6. I saw someone mention ,in another comment, the idea that JS could reprise his role from the transporter franchise. That could be very interesting. Stathams character(Frank Martin) well versed in driving and could make for some very interesting contributions to the plot. You couldn’t really let him fight anyone though; no one could bet him up.

  7. No Jason Statham vs Paul Walker Dom and Hobbs are still going at it

  8. The Fast and The Furious 6 plot: Michelle Rodriguez character is hiding in Europe. Dwayne Johnson character is called back to go after her. Jason Statham character is helping Rodriguez escape Johnson’s FBI team. Rodriguez teaches Statham how to become a racer. Statham becomes a professional driver known as The Transporter. Statham and Rodriguez fall in love. Vin Diesel shows up in Europe. They fight over Rodriguez. They settle on a race to see who would win her. As we know from The Transporter movies and Tokyo Drift, neither of them have a girl. While Diesel and Statham are racing, Johnson show up. A group of bad guys also show up because Rodriguez and Statham stole from them. Hell broke lose. Rodriguez took a bullet for Johnson. She’s killed. Diesel and Statham show up at the crime scene. Johnson and Diesel get into a fight over Rodrigue’s death while Statham go after the bad guys. Ends of FaF6. To be continue on part 7.

    • Are they in Europe? If so, what country? France, England, Germany, Italy??

      • London

  9. Yes he should be in both or atlelase the seventh one for my professional opinion, right now Mia n lefty with Belkins and the two that got away in Tokyo,

  10. statham vs dom

  11. i don’t know, brian is soon to be a father, he has a wife and kid to think about now. i don’t know if that will affect his involvement with all the action and dangerous stints with Dom. Although i don’t think so, since they’re brother in laws, but just a thought.

  12. 6/7

  13. they need to make these movies need to bring in tokyo drift cause it kinda just stands out by itself

  14. Cant wait it will be the best call me up 336-877-0871

  15. ye budder thanck god that there is two more of them comming out

  16. This should be imtresting! and Statham is a great edition and and having a race with Vin Diesal in London! Maybe add Mclaren and Aston Martin in the scence!

  17. The F&F franchise is so amazing, why ruin it with JS? He isn’t a good actor at all, he’s just “eye candy” for older viewers…

  18. Okaaaay so I LOVE Fast and Furious…. I don’t think that I can wait that long for the next one to come out and I’m a huge fan of Jason Statham, but I’ll tell you the next 2 will be epic…. Number 5 was amzing, but I think these 2 will be amazing!!!!

  19. well if really hope jason statham will play the antihero

  20. well i really hope jason statham will play the antihero

  21. Honestly I think the back to back movies will be great especially with the potential addition of Statham. As long as Arnold and Stallone aren’t in them, I’m good… Don’t mind the idea of the the francise moving to Europe, although it’d truly be great to finish in NYC.

  22. For all those who want to see more street racing again, I wouldn’t get your hopes up too much. It was already said that they’re veering away from the racing aspect and the next ones are going to be like Fast 5, aimed more towards big heists. As for Jason Statham joining the cast, hes one of my favorites, along with the Fast and the Furious movies, so, it would be a win win!

    And, for the few that said they wish it would tie into Tokyo Drift, and bringing Lucas Black into it, that would be a little difficult, since, if you didn’t notice the timeline was different, cause they killed Han, and than he was all of a sudden alive and well in Fast 4 and 5. Than again Lettie was supposed to be dead too!

  23. i love fast and furious movies bt i dont lyk th idea thy ended the collection wit fast 5 cos it had perfect ending

  24. Unless you missed the extra clip after the credits, it didn’t have the perfect ending, they left it open with a cliffhanger!

  25. I love the fast furious 1,2,3,4,5 and
    I am exited to seen 6 and 7 move….
    I seen the pichire 128 times i like BRAIN O CORNER, DOMNIC TORRATO, MIYA TORRATO,HAAN,and HUBS……
    PLEASE DID NOT CHANGE THIS HEROS PLEASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEE!
    Ok

  26. I loved fast and furious and fast five the best two was okay but, I think JS will be a great addition to the cast, I think they should move in a different direction than street racing. They should let the character have a better story line. Hope they do shoot in UK, maybe Germany, and Austrial locations.

  27. Tokyo drift is were it’s at my friends

  28. All up coming moveis.

  29. I can not wait!
    Is it possible to be in any sort of contest to be involved behind the scenes? I really would like to apply for it! However, I am only an amateur actor in sweden … but who cares!
