The 47-year-old actor, who played the role of special forces assassin Deckard Shaw in the most-recent instalment in the money-spinning franchise, has confirmed he is set to reprise the part and has told fans to expect some “great stuff” in the new movie.

He shared: “The fanbase is very unique.

“They really do relate to the characters. They love these characters. They’ve followed them for years and years.

“We’re already talking about doing another one, part eight, and I’m a newcomer. I just got invited to the party in this last one, so it’s nice to know that I’ll be doing another.”

However, Jason admitted he doesn’t have any influence over the plotlines and refused to disclose any specific secrets.

He told Access Hollywood: “I don’t create the stories.

“[The writers] have always got something good up their sleeve, and I don’t want to be the one who spoils everything, giving you plotlines and stuff like that.

“But there is some great stuff that I already know about.”

‘Furious 7’ recently became the third highest-grossing film ever, behind ‘Avatar’ and ‘Titanic’.
