At a press day for his upcoming gritty indie flick Hummingbird (for US audiences it’s called Redemption), Coming Soon.net got to chat with Jason Statham about his role in Fast & Furious 6 and his plans for the next film in the series.
While the English actor confirmed said he was “really excited to be a part of that franchise”, he also said that work on the next film won’t interfere with the production time for Expendables 3.
“No, we’ve worked it out. I’m gonna be able to do the two back-to-back. Let’s just say for the next seven weeks I’m gonna do nothing,” he said.
“I’m gonna lay on my back and do nothing, and then go to work. It’s great to have two ensemble pieces where the weight’s not on my shoulders, it’s just gonna have a little fun and enjoy myself.”
As for Fast and Furious 7, Statham said fans would have to wait and see if he and Vin Diesel will clash ‘bald’ heads.
“We’ll have to wait and see. (laughs) I’m sure that’s what they want me to say,” he added.
