Fast and Furious 6 and 7 may shoot back to back, Jason Statham joining the cast?

Oct. 4, 2011by:

If ever there was a tailor-made actor for THE FAST AND FURIOUS franchise, it's bald-headed slab o' beef Jason Statham (THE EXPENDABLES 2, KILLER ELITE).

According to Twitch, sources close to the site are saying that Universal is considering shooting FAST 6 and FAST 7 back to back in Europe throughout much of next year. What's more, the studio has entered into preliminary talks with Statham to explore the possibility of the action star joining one or both films.

Justin Lin will of course be at the helm of the vehicular shenanigans once (or twice) again. As Twitch points out, Lin recently dropped out of directing TERMINATOR 5 due to "scheduling conflicts". The potential back-to-back shooting of FAST 6 and 7 may have something to do with that.
Extra Tidbit: Just make THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS VS. THE EXPENDABLES super film already!

Whoa?

Three way Man-gasm! I can see this going multiple ways since it's being filmed over in Europe. He's an interpol agent tracking M'rod and meets up with The Rock when he comes chasing after Diesel? Either way the car chases will be super sick!

cool news, and they need to bring back Lucas Black. I really thought his character was good in Tokyo Drift. He was also good in Get Low!

totally agree, I mean they brought back Roman from the weakest of the franchise, why not that character for the underrated Tokyo Drift, shit bring back the Neela character also, she was so hot.

Statham would be awesome in Fast and Furious. Let's hope this happens!

Jason should fill a villain part or come back as the Transporter while Vin tries to steal from him.

so you get your sources from a site called Twitch? This franchise is on a major high point, please don't screw it up Universal by turning it into Expendables Jr.

Hell yes!

Statham is my favorite action star. I've always wanted him to be in this series. It'll be much better with him in it. FAST FIVE aside, the series hasn't been anything particularly good.

I actually think this casting is TOO predictable. Statham's already in every other action movie in the world right now, and even though I am (was?) a fan of Mr. Transporter, I just find this casting news sort of bland.

Wow. That is just fucking awesome. I never really thought about this franchise reaching 7 especially considering I don't like 2 and 3 but 5 was excellent. These movies are actually getting better so I'm down. I'm just worried about them filming back to back sequels, that hardly ever works. I do have faith though.

Awesome. They better have a Vin Diesel/The Rock/Jason Statham threeway fight. There would be more testosterone on screen in that scenario than all of The Expendables.

Transporter & Furious

Statham would be a solid addition to the F&F franchise as long as he does'nt take away too much of the attention/screen time from Diesel or Walker. F&F and F5 have really cranked up the quality and made F&F one of my favorite action franchises.
