While at CinemaCon, Universal Pictures announced several upcoming sequels, which is the way of Hollywood now, beginning with a July 11, 2014 release date for Fast & Furious 7, which will be directed by James Wan and, at the very least, star Vin Diesel and Paul Walker with the rest of the cast not yet officially confirmed.
One interesting thing to note is that Dwayne Johnson recently told Collider that if the film shoots this summer, which has been rumored to be the plan, he likely won’t be involved:
“[A summer shoot] is not possible for me because I’m shooting Hercules this summer starting in six weeks in Budapest. I haven’t heard anything about that and I’m pretty sure I would have gotten a phone call pretty early in the morning if that was the real plan.”
There have also been rumors of a spin-off for Johnson’s character, but that’s obviously something that will be announced down the line should it come to fruition.
Additional rumors swirling the Fast franchise have Jason Statham playing an integral part in the seventh film
Now with that out of the way, here’s a new poster for the upcoming Fast & Furious 6 featuring Johnson.
