'Fast and Furious 7' Cast: Vin Diesel PHOTOS as Dominic Torreti; Paul Walker Confirms Eighth Installment
Vin Diesel posted new photos of him playing Dominic Torreti in the seventh installment of 'Fast and Furious' on Nov. 19. Diesel had previously suggested that talks for the eighth in the series had already begun and actor Paul Walker confirmed the news in a recent interview.
Dressed in a black jacket, grey shirt, and black pants, the actor shows very intense and broody expression in the shots. One of the images shows him looking down while leaning against the wall of a warehouse, and a wrecked red colored speedster is seen in the background. Diesel's caption for the image read, "Dom state of mind..."
When asked how many more Fast & Furious films he would like to do and how long the "franchise could realistically go on" for, Walker sounded pretty optimistic.
"Well, the studio supposedly wants 8, 9, and 10. I'll be 50. Even if 7 were to [tank], there's at least an 8. That's a guarantee," he said. "The thing that's pretty crazy is that neither Vin nor I were going back to do the third one. They were going to do a direct-to-video- 4. They were going to dispose it and be done with it."
"But then, Vin was like, 'No, I'll come in for a cameo,' because it wasn't testing well," Walker added. "He wanted to set up the fourth on and the studio went for it, and we got a second life. It was supposed to be done already."
The cast for the seventh installment reprising their roles include Luke Evans, Tyrese Gibson, Walker, Ludacris and Jordana Brewster. UFC Womens Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and ONG Bak star Tony Jaa will also play important roles.
In Fast and Furious 6, Dominic Toretto and his crew helped in taking down Owen Shaw (Evans). It is rumored that the plot for the new film will revolve around how the Toretto and his gang combat Owen's brother Ian Shaw (Jason Statham), who is hellbent on avenging his brother's death.
Fast and Furious 7 will hit theaters in July 2014.
