Veteran actor Kurt Russell is reportedly revving up to join the cast of the next Fast & Furious sequel.

The Big Trouble in Little China star, 62, who played a maniacal motorhead in Quentin Tarantino’s 2007 Grindhouse movie Death Proof, has been linked to a role in the upcoming seventh installment of the car racing films, according to industry publication Variety – although details about his part have yet to be revealed.

If Russell signs on, he won’t be the only new face to appear alongside stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker – Jason Statham will also be joining the cast after featuring briefly in the closing scenes of Fast & Furious 6.

Fast & Furious 7 will be directed by original Saw filmmaker James Wan. (MT/DV/KL)
