Fast and Furious 7 news and rumours

I'm writing fast and furiously for Yahoo Movies on the big, loud, little bit dumb franchise at the moment. My latest articles cover what is actually known about Fast and Furious 7 so far, including Rihanna joining the cast and also details about the cars featured in Fast and Furious 6, out tomorrow!

I hope it's not obvious from the second article that I know very little about cars and actually have very little interest in them. Hopefully this article will appeal to the hard core fan base of Fast and Furious fans who really love the smell of petrol, burning rubber and the sound of squealing tyres and crunching metal.


I have to say I'm really looking forward to Fast and Furious 6 despite not really being a fan of any of the films since the first one. For a film that ripped off Point Break from the start, it has morphed into something more spectacular and silly than anyone could have ever imagined. Getting the cast of the franchise back together for Fast Five was a master stroke and turning it into a globe trotting crime film that goes way beyond its street racing roots was also a smooth move.

Fast and Furious 7 will have to pull something pretty spectacular out of the bag to beat this latest instalment by the sounds of things and with the incredibly short schedule for shooting and all the rest before the July 2014 release, sounds like new director James Wan will have his work cut out.

Here is a review of Fast and Furious 6 from Chris Haydon at Filmoria that got me pretty excited for the movie.
