Djimon Hounsou has joined the cast of Universal’s Fast & Furious 7. He’s the latest to be added to the action film, following martial artist Ronday Rousey and Kurt Russell.

The seventh installment of the Fast & Furious series will bring back all the series’ familiar faces like Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Paul Walker, plus Dwayne Johnson. Writer Chris Morgan and director James Wan are both reprising their original positions on the pic, and Neal H. Moritz will also be back as producer.

No plot details have been revealed but he’s a short brief of what happened in the last film. (BEWARE. Spoilers ahead!)

In FF6 Johnson’s Dobbs enlisted the help of Walker and Diesel’s crew to help capture Luke Evans’ team of drivers. After a kick ass finale on the world’s largest runway Diesel and the gang return to LA for the first time in the series since The Fast & the Furious.

After a nice barbeque Sung Kang’s Han returns to Tokyo, and is killed while racing; which finally links the series to the events in Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift, but who killed Han? None other than Shaw’s (Evans) brother, played by Statham.

Honsou will next be seen in Baggage Claim, Seventh Son, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and How To Train Your Dragon 2.

    I thought Han died in a car wreck by the hands of those Yakuza wanna-bes…in Tokyo Drift, now they are saying Jason Statham’s character killed him? WTF?

  • Predator_dos

    He died in a wreck yes, but you never saw who the driver of the car that hit him was in Tokyo Drift. Based on what we saw at the end of Fast 6 we now know that the driver was Statham’s character. Whether that was the plan all along, or if they just put it in there after the fact to link Han’s death to Shaw is anybody’s guess.

    I also thought, the first time I saw that last scene on FF6, that the
    scene gets the right connection with Tokyo Drift, but then this weekend I
    saw Tokyo Drift again, and I paid special attention to that particular
    scene when Han gets hit, and there’s an aerial shot, seconds after the
    car explodes,
    that a woman is shown getting out of the car that hit Han’s car (the woman is shown taking her hand to her mouth, shocked by the scene). It is
    the same car!! and it’s placed in the right position so nobody can argue
    that it isn’t the car that hit Han’s car. I guess Justin Lin didn’t
    paid attention to THAT detail. Maybe later, producers will eliminate
    that frame in subsequent Blu Ray editions so nobody can notice it. Can
    anybody else watch that scene on Tokyo Drift and confirm my point?

  • Predator_dos

    I’ll pop in the DVD and give it a look see later, but if that’s the case then it basically proves that this wasn’t the plan back when Tokyo Drift was being made and that they just picked a convenient scene after the fact and manipulated it to link the series together. But the reason why I think this was indeed the original idea is because in Vin Diesel’s cameo at the end of Tokyo Drift he mentioned that he knew Han and that Han was family, and it would therefore make sense that he would be in Japan investigating Han’s death. It suggests to me that Justin Lin did have a general plan when he was making Tokyo Drift to link all the movies together eventually, even if this wasn’t the exact way he intended to do it.

    I’m watching Tokyo Drift right now as I did when FF6 came out. Both times, in the aerial shot I all I see is a person going up to the Mercedes that hit Han and looking inside.

  • KRUSGHROOVE OG

    Okay after watching that scene a couple of times. I do see a woman coming into the frame at the last second coming in the aerial shot. The woman is coming from the bottom right hand corner and she does raise her hand to her mouth it looks. She did not come out of the Benz but she is walking towards its direction, since it is in the path of Han’s wreckage.

  • KRUSGHROOVE OG

    Yeah Han was just trying to outrun/maneuver DK and in the process he ended up getting hit by another seemingly random vehicle. We never saw the driver of the Benz as Predator said,. Of course in F6. We find out that the wreck was intentional and that Statham was the drive of the vehicle. As Predator said who knows if that was the intention all along.

    Another Fast and Furious movie….great……….can’t wait for it….. Wonder what it’s about? Lol

  • beane2099

    I can’t believe I’m excited for a Fast & Furious movie. But damn, Fast 5 made me a fan. I couldn’t have cared less about the first four, but they had me at “…also staring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.” Seriously, the man had a coffee table for his chin beard. But the action in 5 (and 6) has me coming back for 7. And look at the cast they’ve got. Whatever the Expendables doesn’t have they seem to be picking up.
