[UPDATE]: Paul Walker died November 30 in a car accident in Southern California, TMZ is reporting. The actor was 40. Story developing.
Vin Diesel shared two images of him with co-stars Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson and director James Wan, from the set of Fast and Furious 7, via his Facebook account on Nov. 22.
The actor captioned the picture of him and Wan, who are seen laughing while they discuss something, with a positive message:
"From the cast to the director and crew... you can tell when people are really excited about the work they're doing...P.s. I got a good feeling about 2014!"
The other picture shows him and co-stars Walker -- wearing a bullet proof vest -- and Gibson shooting an intense look at the camera. The men are definitely in character as can be seen by the bruise marks on Diesel's face and Walker's rugged look, their disposition suggests they mean business.
Recently Jason Statham spoke to Moviefone about his upcoming projects and Fast and Furious 7. The identity of Statham's character in the film still remains a secret and seems like he is not planning on giving any information away soon.
When he was asked if he was going to play a bad guy in the seventh installment, the actor pretty much evaded the question.
"Well, I am doing something for the Fast & Furious franchise, but I can't talk about what that is," he said.
In the last film of the franchise, Statham played the role of villain Owen Shaw's brother Ian. Dominic Toretto (Diesel) and his crew took Owen down and Ian was left avenging his brother's death.
The publication suggested that he did kill somebody in the last film, which could lead fans to infer that he might be playing an antagonistic role in this one. Statham seemed to have been left sligtly stumped by that implication.
"Ahhhh! The cat's out of the bag! You'll see. The studio's like, "Don't talk about 'Fast'!" he responded.
Fast and Furious 7 will take off from where Fast and Furious 6 left off. Wan took over the director's role from Justin Lin, who announced earlier in the year that he will step away from directing the franchise.
The cast for the seventh installment reprising their roles include Luke Evans, Gibson, Walker, Ludacris and Jordana Brewster. UFC Womens Bantam weight champion Ronda Rousey and ONG Bak star Tony Jaa will also star in the film.
Fast and Furious 7 hits theaters in July 2014.
