Lucas Black is set to join Vin Diesel back behind the wheel for the next three Fast And Furious films.
The US actor, who starred in the third film The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift, is to reprise his role as Sean Boswell in Fast And Furious 7, reported Deadline.
The 30-year-old is said to have signed a deal which sees his character as a regular in the series and could mean he will be a part of the next three instalments of the hit film franchise.
There had been speculation that he could be making a comeback, because the end of Fast Six sees the crew returning to Tokyo, Japan, where the third film was set.
Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson and Tyrese Gibson are also expected to be in Fast And Furious 7, alongside newcomers Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa and Ronda Rousey.
James Wan will direct from a script written by Chris Morgan.
The Fast And Furious franchise shows no sign of running out of gas - the last film gave Universal its biggest worldwide opening in studio history, and is the third highest worldwide grossing film of the year after Iron Man 3 and Despicable Me 2.
