'Fast and Furious 7' News: Wrap Shot With 'The Most Badass Cat Ever,' Tony Jaa, Revealed By James Wan [VIDEO]
As the last leg of filming for Fast and Furious 7 is currently underway in Los Angeles, director James Wan revealed that Tony Jaa has wrapped filming his part in the movie on June 28.
The director posted an image with Jaa, in which both are seen sharing an intense karate moment together, on his Twitter account.
In his caption, Wan describes Jaa as a "badass cat" and the "sweetest human being:"
"And that's a wrap on Tony Jaa at 5am. The most badass cat ever. Who also happens to be the sweetest human being.#F7"
Jaa is one of the new cast members to join the F&F franchise with this instalment. Nothing is known about Jaa's character until now, as it is still shrouded in mystery.
Recently Wan also revealed that Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris had finished working on this instalment of the action franchise. Wan tweeted an image featuring him with Ludacris and Gibson, with all three of them holding up seven fingers.
It seems like filming will finish soon. A recent casting call for extras seemed to suggest that filming should be through in July.
Last month it was announced that the film's wrap date was in July and some details about the final scene of the film were also revealed.
In a The Hollywood Reporter report dated May 21, the ending of the 13-week shoot was written about. The final scene will be shot in Bakersfield, California with 600 people in the shot. Seems like it will be a massive feat for director James Wan.
It seems like these extras might be being called out for this scene, which is why the casting category is pretty broad.
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 last year that he will step away from directing the franchise.
The cast for the seventh installment reprising their roles include Diesel, Luke Evans, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris and Jordana Brewster. UFC Womens Bantam weight champion Ronda Rousey and ONG Bak star Tony Jaa will also star in the film.
