First Fast & Furious 7 Production Still Hits the Web

The Fast & Furious franchise has been all over the map for me.  I quite liked the first film and then just got completely disinterested right up until Dwayne Johnson came on board.  The last two films go way over the top with the physics-bending action scenes but have been really enjoyable and worth the $5 I have to pay for a matinee in my town.

While we just saw #6 in theaters, production is already underway on #7 which will see Jason Statham, Kurt Russell and Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) join the cast, which is exciting, but I'm a little concerned that director Justin Lin, who revitalized the series, is no longer around.  Fortunately, Dwyane Johnson, Paul Walker and Vin Diesel are back and going to draw an audience if nothing else.  Speaking of Diesel, his Facebook page was updated last night with this picture and the words, "the unknown road ahead..."

Diesel certainly understands the power of social media.  After this year's SDCC he used his Facebook to get Marvel fans all tuned up and now, it seems, he's at it again.  Fast 7 will is scheduled to hit theaters July 11, 2014. Fast & Furious 6, due out on DVD and Blu in December, is available for pre-order now by clicking the title here-->Fast & Furious 6 (Steelbook) (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet).  If you haven't seen Steelbook Blu-rays yet take a look.  They are cool collector's editions for those of you who proudly display your media.
