When it comes to casting news for the The Fast and The Furious franchise, don’t expect to hear any reports from the trades. Usually, this information comes right from the stars of the film themselves. Like Vin Diesel, who has been there for almost the entire franchise. The actor took to social media today to announce that Oscar-winning actresses Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren will be back to reprise their roles. More on the report here below.
In a world of reboots, whether in television or film, one tends to feel a strange mix of excitement and skepticism. The nostalgia for the old cannot reconcile with the expected letdown of the new, because the original lives on your imaginary pedestal. FOX is trying its hand at Lethal Weapon, and from the glimpse we get from this sneak peek, I believe it is worth it to give it a chance. Why, you ask?

The Fast and Furious franchise is one that lives up to its title. Incredibly fast-paced racing, furiously high-octane action sequences, and those one-liners, each new installment brings something new to the table. What makes the franchise so special is that it finds a way to adapt to the changing trends, going from underground illegal street racing to bank heists and beyond. This keeps everything fresh, and has the audience coming back for more. Even with the changes, the franchise never loses sight of its roots by continuously focusing on the themes of cars and, most importantly, family.
Furious 7 may be the most somber film of the series. The tragic passing of star Paul Walker presented a huge obstacle for director James Wan (Saw, The Conjuring), who had to figure out how to give the vision that fans wanted, but also pay respect to the franchise star.
After having an explosive showing with its Super Bowl spot last Sunday, Universal has released the full trailer for Furious 7.
