Rumors circulated a few weeks back that Kurt Russell was in talks to join the cast of Fast & Furious 7: Mission To Moscow, and it looks like lead car-driving guy Vin Diesel has confirmed it via his Facebook page. Deadline noted that the actor posted a photo from the set on September 24, which said, “Kurt Russell, such an honor to work with…” (Diesel’s Facebook page has nearly 48 million likes, by the way.) Also seen in the pic: former One Life To Live actor John Brotherton, who also appears as “Handsome Guy” in the upcoming We Are Men pilot.
So what plot details can we glean from the photo? Well, they appear to be in some kind of garage or work space that tends to get stuffy, judging by the giant fan. They’re either coming from or going to some kind of business-dress event, because they’re wearing sport coats and dress shirts. There’s a soldering iron in the immediate foreground…some fenders hanging in the background. So we can say this much: Cars will once again play a role in Fast & Furious 7, and Vin Diesel is dressed like he’s going to an insurance seminar for part of it. The film will make eleventy billion dollars.
