The Rock will be back for Fast & Furious 7

The Rock will be back for Fast & Furious 7

Despite suggestions he was going to be too busy to do it (fearing a clash with his new film “Hercules”), “Fast & Furious” producer Neal Moritz says Dwayne Johnson will indeed be back for the seventh film, which begins filming this Summer.

“The Rock will be involved”, Moritz tells Collider, suggesting they’ve been working around Johnson’s other commitments to make sure he’s a part of this “new chapter” in the franchise.

Moritz is confident Australia’s James Wan can make a good film from “Fast & Furious 7″, saying “[Wan is] a terrific, terrific director at the top, top of his genre. He’s done everything you could do in the genre he’s been working in, and as he said to me the other day, everything he has trained himself within that genre has been so he could take the next step up into something like Fast & Furious… I’ve always been a fan of his, he’s one of the people that we initially had on our list as a possible replacement, but I can just tell you when he came in and told us what his vision was, when he left the room we all looked at each other and said ‘That’s our director.’”

At this stage, Moritz said there’s no movement on a Rock/Hobbs “Fast & Furious” spin-off.
