Lucas Black Returns for FAST & FURIOUS 7, 8 and 9

Fast & Furious franchise fans will be happy to hear that Lucas Black will return to the fold in James Wan’s Fast & Furious 7.  Appearing only in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Black will make up for his absence by not only starring in the upcoming feature, but the next two after that.  Black’s drift-racing character, Sean Boswell, will become a series regular for at least the next film trilogy.  For those of you who have been paying attention throughout the entire franchise, you’ll understand why it makes sense to add Black/Boswell back in now.  If you need a refresher, hit the jump.

The film also stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham and Djimon Honsou.  Check out Fast & Furious 7 when it opens July 11, 2014. 

the-fast-and-the-furious-tokyo-drift-posterDeadline reports that Black will return in Fast & Furious 7 and at least the two films that follow it.  As I mentioned above, Black previously starred in the franchise’s third installment, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.  (Spoilers follow.) In the 2006 picture, Sean Boswell (Black) was introduced as an Alabama teenager living in Tokyo and learning how to drift in order to compete in street races.  The picture also introduces Sung Kang as Han, who met a disastrous end with an explosive conclusion to the film.  Fans were somewhat confused, and understandably so, when Kang returned as Han in the fourth, fifth and sixth installments.

The trick is in realizing that the order of the films in which they were released is not the chronology of events within the films themselves.  The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is actually the most recent film as far as in-movie events are concerned, especially since the ending of that film ties into the ending of Fast & Furious 6.  In other words, the fourth, fifth and sixth installments occur after the first two films, but act as prequels to Tokyo Drift.  Fast & Furious 7 should tie all of the previous films together, especially with the addition of Black, and will get us back on the chronological track. 

So, to get the full picture, watch the films in this order:

  1. The Fast and the Furious (2001)
  2. Turbo Charged Prelude (2003 Video)*
  3. 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
  4. Los Bandoleros (2009 Short Film)*
  5. Fast & Furious (2009)
  6. Fast Five (2011)
  7. Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
  8. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
  9. Fast & Furious 7 (2014)

*Although I’m a fan of the films, I’m not familiar with the videos and shorts that popped up in between theatrical releases, so I’ll take this order as a leap of faith.

    Cool. I actually liked Tokyo drift!

    • God’s Diamond

      I relate more to his character than any other characters in this series. Glad he’s back.

  • Liderc

    His accent is terrible. It’s like a fake southern accent but he’s not faking it.

    • Alan Burnett

      Screw you, you Lucas Black-hating fool. He is a GOD, accept it.

      • James

        The God of terrible, unlikable actors, with awful accents. I would never watch Tokyo drift for two reasons, it has him in it, and it has to be one of the worst movies ever.

  • Marissa Evans

    I honestly thought it was going to be just one more film.

    • Bob

  • Julio Navas

    Awesome news. This was the most logical move they could do.

    • HeSaidSheSaidReviewSite

      Logical? 9 of these movies is the exact opposite of logical.

      • Strong Enough

        lol

      • bombinUSA

        a franchise that consistenly breaks 500 million world wide with the product actually improving…yah making more of these movies isn’t logical at all….lol, freaking troglodyte.

    8 & 9?! jeez. well, as long as theyre all at least on par with 5 and 6 ill give them a shot. I really think they should wrap up this franchise soon. I do like that they’re finally tying it in to Tokyo Drift and moving forward.

    • Joe

      Really? 5 was good but 6 was garbage.

      • http://movieguynewsreviews.blogspot.com/ Josh

        well you are entitled to your own opinion, but i and everyone i know who saw it all thought it was great and one of the best in the series

      • Bob

        Please don’t state minority opinions like there fact, when in fact most people feel that exact opposite as you. It’s one of my most hated things. You just get people upset and look like a moron in the process.

  • LEM

    WOW fast and furious 9? they almost went straight to DVD for Tokyo drift and now this franchise is a box office beast. It cool that they now have come full circle and included everyone again.

  • cloud720

    What about Lil Bow Wow?
    :|

    • Random Bystander

      They need Bow Wow and Ludacris in the same movies, Ithink their characters would be fast friends

      • RiddleThemThis

        They would definitely be furious friends.

      • Random Bystander

        I see what you did there

    Lol
    Interview with one of the screenwriter
    The guy thinks that fast and furious is a metaphor for the Decay of western civilization
    What a pretentious hack

  • Taylor

    Trumbore, check out the shorts on youtube. The 2 fast prequel is kind of goofy0 lightweight fun watching and the other is strangely heavy. Thank you for including them on the timeline. I have always liked them and you are the first writer I’ve seen to include them on the timeline

  • Marlboroliteman

    They’re adding another male character to these movies!!! Im shocked, the Fast & Furious series is just one big sausage fest. It’s like Magic Mike for gear heads. They’re like remakes of Cruising but more gay.
    If Dom asks Sean Boswell if he prefers snails or oysters I’m gonna throw up.

    • jack

      you sound like a huge homophobe….there are many hot women in these films

      • Marlboroliteman

        Yea as long as you don’t blink you won’t miss them.

      • bombinUSA

        lol at your bravado about not enjoying all-male casts to hide the fact that you’re a huge penis craving homo in real life. haaahhaha

      • Marlboroliteman

        Written by the guy who has a Vin Diesle fat head on his bedroom wall.

      • bombinUSA

        who is vin diesle? is he one of those gay porno actors you like watching? lol

      • Marlboroliteman

        Is he? I wouldn’t know. Wow your like a gay porn star savant.
        So your admitting you have a gay porn star fathead on your bedroom wall. That’s cool, to each his own.

      • bombinUSA

        im asking you the question here you f.ag. you know, you’re the one that eats cawk for breakfast lunch and dinner you god damn homosexual piece of shiieet. lol

      • bombinUSA

        lol at your bravado about not enjoying all-male casts to hide the fact that you’re a huge penis craving homo in real life. haaahhaha

    Makes perfect sense for the story. He’ll take Han’s place. I was waiting for this news, excited to hear it!

  • pDUB

    BamaBoy is back! God bless these fast and furious filmmakers.

  • Jamesy

    Fair play to them for keeping the franchise going, it seemed to be dead after Tokyo Drift but they’ve brought it back. Yes these movies aren’t going to leave the audience with a profound message but they’re fun and entertaining summer movies. Bringing his character back makes sense even if it is a little confusing and feels forced but for those who enjoy the movies I’m sure they’ll welcome it. Bring on Statham vs Diesel vs The Rock! (if he’s returning)

  • eternalozzie

    Wow … people nit pick all the movies here like they are sophisticated movie critics but then like garbage like Fast And The Furious: The Quickening … I don’t get it. You are enigmas wrapped in mysteries wrapped in flatbread with a side of curly fries.

    • Nerdgasm

      Woah wait…. you have seen the new fast and Furious? And you know it’s crap? Whoa mister TimeTravel man tell me your ways! I’d love to movies before they are out!!

    • RiddleThemThis

      Fast & Furious > Star Trek all day, everyday.

      • James

        Yeah if you like terrible movies with undeniably terrible plots. That said, they are still moderately entertaining.

    • Sten

      The dumbest action series of them all is the most profitable. Guess what… did you see “Idiocracy”? Highly recommended. I personally like some dumb fun now and then, but nine times? No way.

      • RiddleThemThis

        You make it sound like you’re watching them back to back. It has been 12 years since the first one was released and we only have 6 films. Is 1 movie every 2 years really too much for you to handle?

      • Sten

        Nope, but it’s like these neverending horror series, that end up being generic. Although the welcome change to heist action movies in Part 5 and the addition of The Rock then and Jason Statham for 7 is holding my interest. 6 was ridiculous, though. Didn’t like it as much as 5. Hoping for James Wan to bring something new to the table.

      • RiddleThemThis

        At first I was hesitant about Wan joining the crew, but now I’m starting to think that switching directors, especially to someone who specializes in horror, will really freshen up the series. No disrespect to Lin, but if he kept doing the Fast Five formula all the way to Fast 9, I’m sure people would lose interest.

  • guest

    DK is back !!! YES !

    I like the guy….Someones at the door!

    Tokyo Drift was the best one I always thought… Good to see them bring him back, and explain why he wasn’t in the others.

    • Bob

      There is no need to explain if you watched all the movies. And the after credits of 6.

    Me and my bro new this would happen. So excited. Now the question is, is his girlfriend and best friend coming back to? I hope so honestly his girlfriend at least cause I cant see her letting him travel around without her etc.

  • vincent

    i always assume black won the race against diesel since he can drift lol

  • youwishyouknew

    i was hoping they’d bring him back so Tokyo drift would fit more into the series besides han just rolling with vin deisel in 5 and 6. i think tokyo drift is what brought life back into the series cause in my opinion 2 fast 2 furious wasn’t good. is this franchise dragged out yes…. do i love it it….. hell yeah i look at it like a mini television series with better production value.
