Fast & Furious 6 star Vin Diesel announced at CinemaCon in Las Vegas today that Fast & Furious 7 will hit theaters on July 11, 2014. As of now, there are no movies currently occupying that release slot, although it falls right between Disney's Maleficent on July 2 and 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past on July 18.
We reported earlier this month that James Wan is in negotiations to direct, just one week after Justin Lin dropped out, citing a rushed production schedule. The sequel is on track to begin shooting this August, just a few months after Fast & Furious 6 opens in theaters nationwide May 24.
