If you were wondering where the first scene of “Fast and Furious 7” would be filmed you know have your answer.
Below is a YouTube video from Vin Diesel showing the movie filming in Atlanta. In the video Diesel is thanking fans for allowing them to make to movie number seven in the series. (In the background you can see new director James Wan.)
Diesel’s video isn’t the only footage released from “Fast & Furious 7.” The Daily Mail recently received photos from the movie. The pictures were also from the Atlanta filming.
In the photos, Diesel—as Dominic Toretto—is at a funeral. The scene was also shot with Paul Walker, who plays Brian O’Connor, and Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, who plays Tej Parker in the series.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on who the funeral is for. (We may venture a guess that it’s Han, played by Sung Kang, since Jason Statham’s character Ian Shaw killed him at the end of “Fast & Furious 6.”)
In addition to some of the new cast members coming to the show, there are also some old ones. Sean Boswell, who played Lucas in the third installment of the series “The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift”, will appear in the seventh movie. (F&F: Tokyo Drift took place years ahead of the other six F&F movies. However, the scene where Han is killed at the end of F&F 6 shows the other movies in the series have finally caught up to the third installment.)
There has also been talks that Bow Wow, who played Twinkie in Tokyo Drift, could be in “Fast & Furious 7”.
“We’re trying to get ‘Twinkie’ back in Fast 7, it only makes sense. So why not?” he told This is 50.
“Fast & Furious 7” is scheduled to hit theaters July 11, 2014.
