Djimon Hounsou and Vin Diesel are set to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy, but that’s not their only upcoming big-screen collision.
Variety reports that two-time Oscar nominee Hounsou (Blood Diamond, In America) has joined the cast of Fast & Furious 7, the next installment of the Diesel-led action franchise. His role hasn’t been revealed, so it’s unclear whether he’ll be siding with Dom Toretto or working against him.
What is known is that Hounsou is joining a hell of a cast: returning players like Diesel and Paul Walker, as well as a great mix of newcomers including Kurt Russell and Jason Statham. Director James Wan is behind the lens on Fast & Furious 7, which takes place in Los Angeles. The movie speeds into theaters on July 11, 2014.
