James Wan has more than proven he's an amazing horror director and excitement is definitely intact to see what he does with the "Fast and Furious" franchise. The seventh installment is already in production, as confirmed by several new plot details and set photos.

We learned a couple of weeks ago that Kurt Russell was in talks to join the cast in an unspecified role. Now thanks to an undisclosed Twitter account, some additional details on Russell's involvement, and the future of the franchise have been discussed. There is also the teasing of the potential return of a past character. Unless the gas miraculously runs out with "Fast and Furious 7", which seems very unlikely given the success of the last film, this franchise has the prospect of continuing for eternity.

You can check out the tweets below:

@FF7Movie
Kurt Russel was almost about to join #Fast7. He would play the father of Jesse, and he would be Toretto’s villain.
@FF7Movie
He would work together with @realjstatham in the film, as Ian Shaw in #Fast7, to take revenge on Toretto and his family.
@FF7Movie
@UniversalPics was searching for a bad guy for #Fast7, but he would be even more bad in #Fast8.
@FF7Movie
With other words, #Fast7 is not the final part of the @FastFurious saga. #Fast8 is also planned. (But no release yet )

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.
