With production already underway on director James Wan’s Fast & Furious 7, Deadline brings word of another familiar face set to make a return to the popular franchise. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift star Lucas Black will reprise his role as Sean Boswell with a contract that also secures his place in tentative eighth and ninth franchise entries.
Also starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Djimon Hounsou and Nathalie Emmanuel, Fast & Furious 7 continues the cliffhanger tease at the end of Furious Six. Fast & Furious 7 is said to return the action to Los Angeles, although the production is currently taking place in Atlanta.
Very recently, Black starred in writer-director Brian Helgeland’s Jackie Robinson biopic, 42.
Look for Fast & Furious 7 in theaters July 11, 2014.
