Right after the success of “Fast Five,” there was talk that a sixth and seventh “Fast and Furious” could be shot back-to-back. Such talk proved impractical, and so “Fast and Furious 6” was shot on its own.
Nevertheless, many have been wondering how the upcoming sixth film will link up with a potential seventh. Today comes two key spoilers from a report over at AICN.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD
The first involves a cameo that hints at the villain in the next film. The second is a twist that is completely unexpected, but adds relevancy to what is arguably the most contentious entry in the series thus far.
In regards to the first, an insider claims a coda has been filmed involving a chase scene in Tokyo where police pursue a Mazda RX-7, with a Mercedes S-Class following the chase before slamming into the RX-7.
The driver of the Mercedes turns out to be Jason Statham. “The Transporter” actor is apparently playing Ian Shaw, the older brother of “Fast and Furious 6” villian Owen Shaw (Luke Evans). Statham’s character then places a threatening phone call to Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto.
The second twist though is out of the blue. The driver of the RX-7 is Han Seoul-Oh (Sung Kang) and the scene basically indicates the events of the third film “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” take place between the events of the sixth and seventh entry.
