Jason Statham will be back as Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious 8

Furious 7 James Wan Jason Statham Banner

Jason Statham isn't one to say no to sequels (THE TRANSPORTER series, THE EXPENDABLES trilogy), so it doesn't come as a huge surprise that he will return as Deckard Shaw in FAST & FURIOUS 8. Statham confirmed to Access Hollywood his character will be back for the FURIOUS 7 sequel.

I’m a newcomer, I just got invited to the party in this last one, so it’s nice to know I’m going to be doing another.

Statham didn't reveal any details on the next entry in the franchise ("They've always got something good up their sleeve and I don't want to be the one who spoils everything.") but did say, "there is some great stuff I already know about."

Besides the central family of characters in Vin Diesel's gang, Dwayne Johnson will reprise his Luke Hobbs role, and Kurt Russell is also expected to return as Frank Petty in FAST & FURIOUS 8, which will be set in New York City. How do you think Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw will be used in the eighth installment in the franchise?

FURIOUS 7 will hit Blu-ray/DVD on September 15, 2015, and FAST & FURIOUS 8 is scheduled to open on April 14, 2017.

As long as we get the Statham that was hinted at from the opening scene taking out a hospital full of special forces by himself and not the one who for the rest of the movie needed help from a bomb or other bad guys or just plain runs the freak away. Come on man he should be kicking ass and taking names. His brother seemed more a threat than he did, so please do him right this time.

Yeah we knew this already but the real question is>>>

How the fuck will you top 7? 7 is the the best out of all of all them next to 5. I hope they do a lot of insane GTA stunts and CGI mayhem again. I love these movies now the shear retardness of them.

So much for the Spoiler Alert

I have not seen FF7 yet but I obviously know now that the bad guy survives. This post was ridiculous. Joblo needs to incorporate "Spoiler alerts texts" that cover the post topics.

It's been almost three months since the movie opened. Spoilers when the movie opens are generally considered public knowledge three months later.

@Jay Breezy, that' s a mistake on the part of the public. I'd at least wait until after the DVD's made the rounds, because I too wasn't aware he was still alive.

Hope they have his character's brother (Luke Evans) wake up from his coma and join in on the fight this time around.

Spoiler alert
I did not like Statham's last stand in Furious 7. Good brawl with Vin Diesel but then he's pinned down and put in prison. I thought Furious 7 was looking for serious closure? Furious 7 showed no signs of this being the "One last ride".
I like Statham, but I liked him more in a movie like Snatch compared to all the action flicks he does.
By the way, pleaseeeeeeeeeee do not make Fast & Furious 8 transition like a music video does! Furious 7 does that constantly.

I love these guys, don't get me wrong, but it seems like Hollywood has a very limited pool of action stars anymore.

Glad to see someone else is noticing this. It became obvious when Jai Courtney was casted as Kyle Reese in Terminator 4.

No surprise. That had him live at the end. Plus it's Statham we're talking about here.

I recall during the fan chat Vin imagined Shaw as having places to go in the future.

Question is, will they follow through on Helen Mirren's request?

Glad he's back. I hope Fast 8 will come up with good explanations as to how Statham's character keep popping up everywhere the heroes go.

I hope they will use him beter this time...

I was very disapointed by FF7 for many reasons (the best of the franchise for me is FF5 in Brazil), but the most disappointing was the bad use of Jason F*cking Statham ! His fight with Dwayne Johnson was not great, I would have expected something more spectacular between those 2 monsters of action movies...
