Ong Bak: Muay Thai Warrior star Tony Jaa has signed on to make his English-language debut in Fast & Furious 7. Details about the actor's role are being kept under wraps, but the actor released the following statement via email from his home country of Thailand.

"I have been a big fan of the Fast & Furious franchise. The films are fast-paced, fun and keep the audience involved. There is a great mix of humor and action, something I really appreciate. There is no better film to be involved in for a first U.S. studio production."

When asked whether or not he would get a chance to fight with Vin Diesel or Dwayne Johnson, and who would win in a fight between himself and either of the action stars, the actor had this to say.

"Having a chance to work with Vin Diesel and The Rock already makes me a winner."

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and MMA fighter Ronda Rousey are confirmed to star. James Wan is directing from a screenplay by Chris Morgan. Production will begin this September.

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.

    I heard was good in Ong Bak, still haven't seen it yet but I do have the Protector and he was good in that, so I think he will be pretty good in this. @ghostman Dwayne has been currently filming Hercules for a while now, and Fast 7 should start filming probably some time next month so he should be able to make it.

    Very excited to see Tony Jaa in the Fast franchise, but I would have preferred to see him in The Expendables.

    I thought Dwayne Johnson couldn't be in Fast 7 because he was busy filming Hercules.
