With 9 months still to wait until the world gets the next Fast and Furious movie, it is amazing how many 'news' stories there are to pick up for those interested. No matter what you think of the films, you have to hand it to Vin Diesel, he knows how to interact with fans and keep them excited for his upcoming projects. Not only is he still busy releasing stills and videos from the set, he's now even looking ahead at his role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Here are the news stories I've been writing for Yahoo on Fast and Furious 7 recently:
Filled with speculation, this is me taking a guess at what Tony Jaa will be doing in the upcoming film. He might be having a ball on the 'Fast and Furious 7' set, hanging out with all the stars but all the evidence so far suggests to me that he will be taking a villainous role.
Another example of Diesel keeping his fans in the loop, he has unveiled a short video from the set of Fast & Furious 7 to celebrate his Facebook page reaching the 50 million fan mark. It features some sweet moves from Jaa and Diesel desperately trying to keep up with the martial artist.
Rumours that MMA star Ronda Rousey would be appearing in 'Fast and Furious 7' have been doing the rounds for ages but Rousey has now officially confirmed she will be appearing in the sequel. Let's hope she kicks even more ass than Gina Carano in the last film.
Just in case all this interaction between the stars and fans is not enough, games developer Kabam have announced that 'Fast and Furious 7' will not only be a hotly anticipated film but also a game for fans to play on their mobiles everywhere. Get behind the wheel and pretend you are the star of the movie!
'Fast and Furious 7' will be many things to many expectant fans but right now it is an economic juggernaut for the city of Salida in Colorado. I found this fascinating how much a film can help the locals. Hooray for Hollywood film productions!
Any of these news stories tickle your fancy or are you just bored sick of hearing about Fast and Furious 7 already?
