Today on his personal Facebook page, star Vin Diesel, who plays fast driving Dominic Toretto, confirmed that this impending sequel will begin shooting this summer in Los Angeles, home of the original 2001 hit The Fast and the Furious.
"There was an early screening in LA this week of Fast 6. The crowd reaction was surreal... and their demand for the continuation was powerful...
It's remarkable to think I first embodied this character in 1999... and the evolution continues.
P.s. Filming begins this summer in LA, where it all started... talk about a studio in sync with the audience...
Fast & Furious 7 will be set up at the end of Fast & Furious 6, with franchise newcomer Jason Statham being set up as a major villain after Dom and Brian get their full pardons and are allowed back into the US, hence the Los Angeles setting.
