The studio is now looking for another big star to join the next film in a small role and then be a big part of the film that follows. Denzel Washington just turned down that opportunity, but they’ll undoubtedly get somebody important by the time The Conjuring helmer James Wan starts shooting the seventh film.

Angelina Jolie

Neeson

Fishburne

Banderas

Norton

Damon

Murphy

 

For the role that Washington passed on. Thinking might be villain role and these guys have played villains or could do a good job as one. Also most are A-list to recognizable names which would give Fast 7/8 a box office boost.

At first I rolled my eyes at the very idea of FF8 after all the hype about part 7 being the last one but just suppose Neeson was in it.....

Since Fast 7 starts a new trilogy, there is going to be a Fast 9. So I want to hold off on Neeson until then. So we need a star who's relatively bigger than Statham, but not as big as Neeson. And since the role was meant for someone like Denzel, then they must want a Denzel type, making Fishburne the best option of that bunch you listed. Of course, I was the first person on this site to mention Neeson and Fishburne as potential future villains.

If Neeson is in Fast 9, then they should have him in a scene in Fast 8 similar to Staham in Fast 6.

Exactly. I came up with an idea for one in the Fast 7 thread. And they're already planning a Fast 8 tease for Fast 7 according to the Denzel news.

Nice! I'm guessing there will be a 2 year gap between 7 and 8 unlike the 1 year gap between 6 and 7.

They also might want to fit a Hobbs spinoff in between the films as well. Plus Vin has some other films he might want to do in between. He has a Hannibal Barca movie he's been wanting to do for a long time. So maybe three years in between 7 and 8. Edited by Jay Beezy

Looks like we're getting Kurt Russell. Although if it's meant to be a surprise a la Statham, why is it being announced?

Because he is coming on Fast 7.

The Deadline article about Denzel stated that the role is a small part in 7 that plays significantly larger in 8. You quoted it up above. Edited by Jay Beezy
