FAST AND FURIOUS 7 will Take the Franchise Back to Tokyo!
I think I'm one of the few people that absolutely loved Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift. That movie was a lot of fun, and it looks like the seventh film in the franchise will be headed back to Tokyo Japan!
The information comes from Vin Diesel himself who said, "We're definitely going back home, as you know from seeing Fast & Furious 6. We will have a stint in Tokyo and there is the Middle East next, that could be very interesting."
Just to clarify the Fast and Furious franchise timeline, Tokyo Drift actually takes place after the events of parts four, five, and six. Vin Diesel has a cameo at the very end of Tokyo Drift, and that cameo brought him back into the franchise. That could very well be the kickoff point for the upcoming seventh film.
It was recently confirmed that Jason Statham will be playing the villain in the film, and make sure to stay after the credits for Fast and Furious 6!
Saw and Insidious filmmaker James Wan is set to direct Fast & Furious 7, and it's scheduled to open in July of 2014.
