Vin Diesel was once just another beefy action star who seemed to be fading away from relevance. Then he discovered Facebook and has been making waves ever since. Months after he sent the internet into s tizzy by breaking news that he’d be a part of the Marvel universe — and then endlessly teasing it since — Diesel is back at it when it comes to leaking information to his upcoming films on his official Facebook page.
Diesel posted the first two official photos from the set of Fast & Furious 7 which the actor confirms has just begun shooting.
Word that Fast & Furious 7 has begun shooting is good news to fans waiting to see what follows the intense events of Fast & Furious6, which was released earlier this year. Much like Diesel’s career, the franchise of Fast & Furious has been revived in the most unbelievable way as a series that seemed dead after a terrible third film is now roaring towards not only a seventh film but a rumored eighth film as well.
New that filming has begun also means that the casting of two-time Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou is the last name to be added to the roster and shows jus how much of a las minute decision it was. Casting can still happen despite filming having started, but it’s too late for actors to drop out without it drastically changing the story.
This means Kurt Russell — who was rumored to have been dropped from the cast — is in it for the long haul for at least one film.
Diesel seems addicted to leaking information about his films to fans, so expect plenty of more updates from the set of Fast & Furious 7 from here until filming wraps and even after that.
