Kurt Russell Confirmed For Fast & Furious 7

Though he’s been linked to the film for a while now, Kurt Russell has seemed to be more of a rumour than an actual cast member of Fast & Furious 7. Now, thanks to the sterling Facebook work of Vin Diesel (who should really get a PR credit on the film), we have confirmation that he’s well and truly part of the production, with the first picture of him shooting a scene with Vin and Paul Walker.

Exactly what Russell will be doing in the movie has yet to be revealed, though we do know the film will find the Fast gang enjoying the benefits of freedom thanks to their efforts in the sixth outing, at least until Owen Shaw’s tough nut brother (Jason Statham's Ian) shows up to take a little vengeance.

If you were wondering where all the cars had disappeared to – since they’re part of the appeal for a big portion of the audience – Ludacris has your back, providing an Instagram video peek at some of the motors that will show up. Note: no Segway to be found. AGAIN. 

With Diesel, Walker, Russell Statham and Ludacris all aboard, the cast also includes Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Dwayne Johnson Lucas Black, Tony Jaa and Djimon Hounsou. James Wan is busy getting it all on film ready for a July 11 release Stateside. Fast & Furious 7 will hit our cinemas on July 25.
