The sixth installment of Fast and Furious series won't open in U.S. theaters until May 24, but the seventh installment of the Fast and Furious film franchise may already be in the works.
On March 30, Vin Diesel took to Facebook to tease Universal Pictures' plans for the upcoming Fast and Furious 7. Diesel first posted a photo of himself with a caption saying, "There was an early screening in LA this week of 'Fast 6'. The crowd reaction was surreal and their demand for the continuation was powerful."
The 45-year-old actor hinted that the seventh installment of the car-racing film series would begin soon, adding, "It's remarkable to think I first embodied this character in 1999 and the evolution continues. Filming begins this summer in LA, where it all started, talk about a studio in sync with the audience."
Rumors about "Fast 7" have recently been floating around. The upcoming speed action film has reportedly grabbed Jason Statham to play the role of Ian, the older brother of Fast 6 villain Owen Shaw who is going to be played by Luke Evans. Even though there is no official statement about who will serve as the director and the writer, it has been speculated that Justin Lin and Chris Morgan will be teaming up again.
Dwayne Johnson has confirmed he will reprise his role in Fast & Furious 7, he goes on to confirm, as has has long been rumored, that the plan is to again have Hobbs return for a Fast & Furious 7.
"With Luke Hobbs, it feels like there might be one more," Rock has said. "There's one more Butch and Sundance journey to go on with Luke and Dom."

Rick Wall Note: It really is starting to seem that finally Dwayne Johnson's career is finally picking up and it's great to see that a wrestler is finally getting recognized in Hollywood.
Again the cast hasn't been officially confirmed BUT with the popularity of Dwayne's character I would expect him to have a role in this film.
