Vin Diesel speaks to Digital Spy about Fast & Furious 7:
“We’re definitely going back home, as you know from seeing Fast & Furious 6. We will have a stint in Tokyo and there is the Middle East next, that could be very interesting.”
Just to clarify the Fast and Furious franchise timeline, Tokyo Drift actually takes place after parts four, five, and six. Vin Diesel has a cameo at the very end of Tokyo Drift, and that cameo brought him back into the franchise, that he started.
