Fast & Furious 7 - Lucas Black returns to franchise

http://www.deadline.com/2013/09/luca...-7-and-beyond/

EXCLUSIVE: Lucas Black, who starred in Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift, is returning to reprise his Sean Boswell role in Fast & Furious 7. Black, most recently seen as Pee Wee Reese in the Jackie Robinson film 42, has signed a deal that calls for his character to become a regular in the series and he will be part of at least the next three installments of Universal Pictures’ most lucrative film franchise. Fast & Furious 7 will be released next July 11.
I guess the third movie really was important after all! It's very cool how they keep bringing back all their characters in the sequels.

Great news. I was hoping that they'd work him in.

The lead character played by Lucas Black never appeared in any of the other movies, but it would be nice if he were included at some point. The series has done well at bringing people back, so I hope it can happen. If you watch [Tokyo Drift], you'll see how he can be worked in.

They gained the actor and lost the director.

I seriously hate that guy. I cannot STAND his thick Southern accent. Ugh. And I hated the third movie. I like the continuity, but... ugh.

Re: Fast & Furious 7 - Lucas Black retuns to franchise

I think the big news right now is the three more movies. I haven't seen any past the first or the second, but now we will have nine? Will they continue coming out every year until they milk the franchise dry?

Maybe we can get a cross over to Riddick.

I wouldn't worry too much, Diesel and Walker should continue to be the leads. I see Lucas Black being more of a supporting character.

I thought Lucas Black was fine in TD, though he wasn't quite strong enough to carry that movie on his own.

We are getting the next Fast movie so quickly because Universal doesn't have a blockbuster next year, Jurassic Park 4 was scheduled for next year but was delayed. I think the producers have found a good rhythm with a new Fast movie every two years. As long as the movies are entertaining, why not do more?

Two years is OK, perfect in fact, but they are doing them every year now, which if they keep it up I think will burn out the franchise quicker than they want.

Re: Fast & Furious 7 - Lucas Black retuns to franchise

I'm not a massive fan of the series (though I've seen and enjoyed the first and fourth movies) but the way they've basically managed to reunite almost everyone who's ever appeared in a F&F movie over the last few years amazes and impresses me.

Haven't seen TD but I thought Black was excellent as a child in the under-rated and short-lived tv show American Gothic.

Great news. If anything, it means they're finally moving forward in the universe. But TD is actually one of my favorites, and I liked Black. I also think it's great that Statham is going to be in it.

Form what I've seen so far, non of the ladies have signed-on yet. I hope Brewster at least makes an appearance.

This better mean Han isn't it - otherwise how could they have a recognisably older post-TD Black with Han still around?

Never mind Lucas Black, what about bringing back:

Re: Fast & Furious 7 - Lucas Black retuns to franchise

It's hard to believe they've already released 6 of these things.

I thought Lucas Black was fine in TD, though he wasn't quite strong enough to carry that movie on his own.
Which is why Han was the actual breakout star.. i loved how they kept referencing Han wanting to go to Tokyo and him postponing it each time (and it always broke my heart a little because i really like the character and was shocked when he died in the movie).

I find Black's southern accent hilarious so news of him returning is good news to me. It's also very easy to include him given the after credits scene of FF6 and the way FF3 ended.

As has been said the even bigger news is that there are apparently 3 more movies locked in which can also be good news if they can keep to the formula and every once in a while rotate some out and some in to keep it fresh. My only wish is they'd tone down the ridiculous stunts a bit.. tanks and Matrix like action scenes is over the top even for Fast and Furious (and killed the Die Hard movies for me when McLane started to battle fighter jets).

Cool cars, awesome driving, even cooler music all mixed together with some cool one liners.. that's Fast and Furious.

I haven't seen TD. Is there any way Han's death there could turn out not to have been real - like Michelle Rodriguez' character?
