Djimon Hounsou has joined the cast of Fast & Furious 7, according to Variety – the 7th film (and maybe not the last, depending on how #7 does) in the uber successful franchise for Universal Pictures.
Details on the project at still underwraps, so we don’t even know what the story will be this time around, and we certainly don’t know what role Hounsou has booked – whether he’ll be a part of star Vin Diesel’s posse, or maybe one of the bad guys.
James Wan is directing.
The busy Hounsou can be seen next in Fox Searchlight’s Baggage Claim this fall. After that, look for him in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy big screen adaptation, playing a villain, Seventh Son (based on the first installment in Joseph Delaney’s children’s dark fantasy novel series The Wardstone Chronicles, titled The Spook’s Apprentice), and Lakeshore Entertainment’s horror/thriller The Vatican Tapes, playing a Vatican official called in to exorcise a demon.
