Today on his personal Facebook page, star Vin Diesel, who plays fast driving Dominic Toretto, confirmed that this impending sequel will begin shooting this summer in Los Angeles, home of the original 2001 hit The Fast and the Furious.
It's remarkable to think I first embodied this character in 1999... and the evolution continues.
P.s. Filming begins this summer in LA, where it all started... talk about a studio in sync with the audience...
Fast & Furious 7 will be set up at the end of Fast & Furious 6, with franchise newcomer Jason Statham being set up as a major villain after Dom and Brian get their full pardons and are allowed back into the US, hence the Los Angeles setting.
Fast & Furious 6 was released May 24th, 2013 and stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot. The film is directed by Justin Lin.
Fast & Furious 7 comes to theaters July 11th, 2014 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.
