It’s been a while since we heard from Kurt Russell, but the star is back and confirmed for the newest Fast And Furious installment.
Yes, Kurt Russell will be starring alongside Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in Fast & Furious 7, a fact Diesel teased to his 47,860,263 Facebook fans — 1,309,720 of whom are chattering about the big announcement right now.
Russell recently dished on his Fast 7 casting, spouting off with possible spoilers in the first sentence as he confirmed his new role.
Speaking to Moviefone at the Toronto Film Festival, Kurt confirmed his role before Diesel Facebooked the first-look shot from the set of the film, telling the site that he was definitely in the movie — but might not be in the next one:
“Well, I was down in Atlanta, I’d just gone down there to work with a writer. I was doing Fast & Furious 7, and they’re having some fun with taking a look at this new character who, at the end of it, I think we probably are gonna kill off. [Laughs] We’re having a good time, and I didn’t know I was going to be doing that.”
Theft seems to be a thematic arc for the star right now, as he’d been at the film festival to promote his new film, “The Art of the Steal.
On Facebook, Vin Diesel shared an image of the three on set, showing fans their first peek at Russell in the sequel to the first six films:
