It would seem that Statham is coming back to the franchise, even after the events of the last film. I personally really loved Statham’s character in the last film and if he’s coming back then I’m completely on board with this choice, though I think the franchise should just end with the last film.
Statham tells Access Hollywood that he’ll return for another film, “We’re already talking about doing another one, part 8. I’m a newcomer! I just got invited to the party in this last one so it’s nice to know that I’m going to be doing another… They’ve always got something good up their sleeve, and I don’t want to be the one who spoils the plot lines but there is some great stuff I already know about.”
Furious 7 now has the honor of being the third highest grossing film of all time, beating the first Avengers film from 2012.
