The Fast & Furious 7 cast looks to have expanded even further after director James Wan dropped a none-too-subtle hint on Twitter. Wan tweeted, “Directing a living legend today. #KurtRussell.”
While there have been rumours that KurtRussell would be joining the franchise, nothing has been confirmed. Of course, his status remains unconfirmed officially, but it looks like a done deal. Filming is currently underway on Fast & Furious 7, and neither Wan nor Russell have other projects at this stage.
It is as-yet unknown what role Russell will play in the film. If the franchise is looking down the road once again, Russell’s appearance could mirror that of Statham’s in Fast & Furious 6 and set up a future storyline.
Fast & Furious 7 will roar into cinemas on July 11th, 2014 in North America and on July 25th in Europe.
