Apparently Jason Statham is able to turn down movie offers. The star of two Crank films and The Bank Job has apparently turned down an offer to star in the upcoming sixth entry in the Fast and Furious franchise. Director Justin Lin is returning to the director’s chair in the apparently globe-spanning Fast Six, but Twitch reports that Statham was unable to work out a deal with Universal to join the testosterone-fuel cast. Dwayne Johnson is reprising his role from the surprisingly great Fast Five, and Vin Diesel and Co. are expected to return as well.
Johnson recently revealed that Fast Six will not be shot concurrently with Fast Seven, but both films will be shot separately in the UK and Germany so we’re in for some international racing this time around. I loved the hell out of Fast Five, so I’m excited to see where Lin takes the series now. Production on Fast Six begins next month
