Statham, who was introduced at the end of the sixth film, will play the main villain in the new movie.

‘The Conjuring’ filmmaker recently revealed he hopes to bring “suspense” and other devices of the horror genre to the franchise.

 

He said: “One of the things I would love to bring to it, having spent a lot of time in the horror/thriller/suspense genre is … I love tension, I love suspense and hopefully I can bring that. That would be my style that I would love to bring to the ‘Fast’ franchise.”

 

‘Fast & Furious 7’ will zoom into cinemas in July 2014.
