Why The Russos Are The Best Thing to Happen to the MCU Since Joss Whedon
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.
