Fast & Furious 6 star Vin Diesel announced at CinemaCon in Las Vegas today that Fast & Furious 7 will hit theaters on July 11, 2014. As of now, there are no movies currently occupying that release slot, although it falls right between Disney's Maleficent on July 2 and 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past on July 18.
Fast & Furious 7 will hit theaters next summer
We reported earlier this month that James Wan is in negotiations to direct, just one week after Justin Lin dropped out, citing a rushed production schedule. The sequel is on track to begin shooting this August, just a few months after Fast & Furious 6 opens in theaters nationwide May 24.
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are likely returning, although no other cast members have been confirmed.
Fast & Furious 7 comes to theaters April 10th, 2015 and stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Kurt Russell, Jordana Brewster, Lucas Black. The film is directed by James Wan.
