Kurt Russell revs up for Fast 7?

Kurt Russell is apparently set for a part in Fast And Furious 7

Kurt Russell is reportedly keen on a role in Fast And Furious 7.

The Big Trouble In Little China star is said to be eyeing a part in Universal's upcoming seventh instalment of the fast cars franchise, which will be directed by James Wan, reported Variety.

There are no further details on Kurt's potential role, which was previously offered to Denzel Washington.

Jason Statham is set to join returning Fast And Furious stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Christopher 'Ludacris' Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster for the seventh film, which is scheduled for a 2014 release.

Newcomers Ronda Rousey and Tony Jaa are also reported to have joined the ensemble cast.

Director James has said he can't wait to get into the driving seat of Fast And Furious 7, which is expected to start production in coming months.

"I am super excited. I'm a big fan of the franchise. I love the action but more so, because I really like the characters. The chance to bring something a bit different to the franchise - I think that's what they're looking for - and that is my goal," he said.

"I think Fast And Furious will finally show people the kind of stuff I really wanted to get into since I was a little kid," he added.
