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:

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

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
