The start of filming for Fast & Furious is pencilled in for this summer, featuring a fast-paced turnaround that previously ruled out Dwayne Johnson’s return due to scheduling conflicts. Fortunately for the millions and millions of the Rock’s fans, producer Neal Moritz has recently confirmed that Johnson will be involved, stating that “The Rock will be a part of it.”
“Yes, we are gonna film this summer,” he revealed. “We have been talking about it for quite a while, because while we’re making any of the Fast movies we’re always talking about what could happen in future Fast films.
“[James Wan is] a terrific, terrific director,” he continued. “He’s done everything you could do in the genre he’s been working in, and as he said to me the other day, everything he has trained [for] has been so he could take the next step up into something like Fast & Furious.”
