Out doing press rounds for “The Conjuring,” filmmaker James Wan briefly spoke about his next gig – taking the helm of the seventh “Fast and Furious” movie which will shoot later this year.
Wan says he plans to shake up the formula of the films yet again for this entry which sees Jason Statham’s bad guy Ian Shaw seeking revenge against Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel). Wan tells The Playlist:
“I really like the theme of this next one that we’re going with. I can’t really talk about it, but I like the theme; it’s one that I really relate to. Then there’s the drive of Number Seven, which was set up at the end of Number Six, which is a classic revenge story.
I’m a big [genre] fan, so that’s how I’m approaching [it]. I’m looking at it like a gritty, 1970s revenge thriller, but one that still fits into the ‘Fast and Furious’ series.”
