According to Variety, Kurt Russell is in negotiations with Universal to grab a major part in the next Fast and the Furious movie. Russell has been on the down low a little bit for a few years but this will be a huge role for him to take on.
With Russell’s impressive resume and range, it’s easy to see why Universal pursued him. They also pursued Denzel Washington, which shows just how big this role will be. It seems like he will most likely play a bad guy but no plot details have been revealed yet.
The franchise has seen great success over the years, including its most recent sixth installment that made an impressive $750 million at the worldwide box office. With their multiple filming locations over the past few movies it looks like this one will be back in Los Angeles with the usual stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker.
