Jason Statham was a lot of fun in Furious 7. Even if his character had very little to do, aside from showing up at the right time to beat the living shit out of everybody in the room.
His ending note in Furious 7 made it pretty obvious that he wasn’t done with this franchise just yet, but now Statham confirms that he’s been contacted for Fast & Furious 8, which shouldn’t really be existing at all.
Still, it’s nice to see Statham get work, especially in such a money-making franchise.
I wonder what his role will be this time around?
A quote from Statham about his involvement in Part 8:
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 I’m going to be doing another.
