Fast And Furious 6 Big Name Cameo To Set Up Part 7

You likely remember the rumours that Jason Statham was going to appear in Fast and Furious 6, taking on the villain’s role. It didn’t happen. Except it did.

Apparently, Statham has been cast as the big brother of Luke Evans character. Evans is the big bad of part 6, and a scene at the end of the film introduces Statham, all in set up for part 7.

Ain’t It Cool have a fussy description of the reveal scene but here’s the crux: Statham shows up in a scene taking place in the middle of Tokyo Drift, smashes up a car and then calls Vin Diesel‘s character with a threat.

Part 7 will no doubt recount his attempt to deliver on this unspecific threat.

We had heard that parts 6 and 7 would be interlinked, now we know how.

I’d be curious to know if Statham was ever intended for a larger role in 6. This seems like a good solution to his not being available. Relatively speaking anyhow.
