Today Acting-Auditions.org is reporting that the Universal Pictures feature film ‘Fast & Furious 7’ shooting has now moved to Southern California for final filming sequences and an open casting call has been scheduled for June 21, 2014. The production is seeking man and women of all ages and types to appear in the film as fully paid general extras and possible featured background actors.
FF7 Productions in association with One Race Films and Original Film are in production on the action crime thriller feature film Fast & Furious 7, and final casting calls are underway in Los Angeles. ‘Fast & Furious 7’ had been officially on hold in December, 2013 just after the tragic death of actor Paul Walker, whose character is central to the film franchise. Roughly sixty percent of filming was completed prior to Paul Walker’s untimely death. The revised storyline has been kept under wraps.
Starring in ‘Fast & Furious 7’ is Teen Choice Awards winner Paul Walker, who had resumed portrayal of his character Brian O’Conner. Walker wrapped Brick Mansions prior to filming ‘Fast & Furious 7’ and his subsequent unexpected death. Also starring in ‘Fast & Furious 7’ is Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Vin Diesel returning as Dominic Toretto. Two-time Grammy Awards nominee Tyrese Gibson is once again playing the role of Roman Pearce. Screen Actors Guild Awards winner Michelle Rodriguez returns as Letty Ortiz. Two-time People’s Choice Awards nominee Dwayne Johnson reprises his role as Luke Hobbs. English actor Jason Statham is playing the protagonist role of Ian Shaw. Kurt Russell plays a father figure to Vin Diesel and Paul Walker’s characters.
Taiwanese-born American film director Justin Lin, who directed the last four films in the franchise, did not return to direct ‘Fast & Furious 7’. Malaysian-born Australian filmmaker James Wan is now directing from an original screenplay written by Chris Morgan based on characters created by Gary Scott Thompson. Although Wan is known for making horror films such as Insidious and The Conjuring, producer Neal H. Moritz stated, “He’s a terrific, terrific director at the top, top of his genre… when he came in and told us what his vision was, when he left the room we all looked at each other and said ‘That’s our director'”. Wan is now the 5th director in a film series that has grossed over $2.27 billion worldwide at the box office.
To be considered, all talent must be legally eligible to work in The State of Califonia and in the United States.
