It looks like another reunion is in order as the Fast & Furious franchise continues. Following The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, franchise stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker returned with the tighter titled Fast & Furious, which has since led to a whole new slew of sequels featuring the two original film's stars and nearly all the stars from the following sequels. Now Deadline reports Lucas Black, who starred in Tokyo Drift, is coming back as Sean Boswell in Fast & Furious 7. In fact, his return is the first of three more sequels as Fast & Furious 8 and Fast & Furious 9 have also been confirmed as being in development. Read on!
It's interesting to note that the unofficial Twitter feed which discussed the possibility of Kurt Russell not finalizing a deal for Fast & Furious 7 actually hinted at Black's return to the franchise. They must have a good insider since they also said that Fast & Furious 8 was on the way. Does that mean one of the villains in this seventh film really will be the father of Jesse from the original film? We'll have to wait and see. For now the cast of Fast & Furious 7 is getting pretty full with new stars like Djimon Hounsou and Ronda Rousey joining the old cast. We're still hoping Russell is part of the bad guys, but if he's not, hopefully a comparably exciting talent will sign up. Stay tuned for more as production on the sequel continues.
