Tony Jaa
Thai martial artist Tony Jaa ("Ong-bak") has joined the cast of "Fast & Furious 7". This will be Jaa's english-language debut. Details about his role have not been revealed. The sequel will be directed by James Wan ("Saw", "The Conjuring"). Besides returning cast members Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker and Tyrese Gibson, "Fast & Furious 7" will also feature MMA champion Ronda Rousey and Jason Statham. Filming begins next month and the release date has been set for July 11, 2014. Here is what Tony Jaa had to say about starring in the sequel:
"I have been a big fan of the Fast and Furious franchise. The films are fast paced, fun and keep the audience involved. There is a great mix of humor and action, something I really appreciate. There is no better film to be involved in for a first U.S. studio production. Having a chance to work with Vin Diesel and The Rock already makes me a winner."
