With Fast & Furious 6 opening in just one week, the cast and crew have been doing press for this action-thriller, and details regarding the follow-up Fast & Furious 7 are starting to come out. Franchise star Vin Diesel revealed that Dom and his crew will get to go back home in the next installment, before taking off on another globe-trotting mission.
"Well, we get to go back home. We will have a stint in Tokyo, and there is a Middle East play, which I think is going to be very interesting."
We reported in April that James Wan is directing Fast & Furious 7, taking the reins from franchise mainstay Justin Lin, who directed the last four movies (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6). We also reported last month that production will begin in August, with Universal Pictures issuing a July 11, 2014 release date.
Be warned, because there will be HEAVY SPOILERS for Fast & Furious 6 in what follows. The end of this sequel shows us the surprise death of Sung Kang's Han, and the introduction of Jason Statham, who plays the brother of Luke Evans' villainous Owen Shaw. This sets up that The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift actually takes place after the events of Fast & Furious 6. Since Dom and his crew go back to Tokyo in Fast & Furious 7, it seems likely that Han's death is what brings them to Japan.
