It’s a good thing that the cast and crew of “Fast and Furious 7” seem as eager to share images from the set as we are to see the damn thing.
Vin Diesel has been updating his Facebook page like he was… Vin Diesel. (There’s no better analogy for that.) And now the series’ new director, James Wan of “Insidious” and “The Conjuring,” his tweeting out some badass imagery himself.
Wan’s latest dispatch features one very slick ride and some info about the new villain for the seventh entry into the series.

So now we know what the bad guy’s car is going to look like, but that’s pretty much it. It’s probably safe to assume that Jason Statham will be behind the wheel of the Aston Martin pictured above, but since details from “Fast and Furious 7” have been locked up pretty tight, we’re still not positive of the role Statham will play.
For those a little behind, Statham makes a surprise appearance after the credits of “Fast and Furious 6,” in an interesting bit of chronology gymnastics. The scene takes place during the events of “The Fast and the Furious: Toyko Drift,” the third installment, which takes place after the ends of “Fast and Furious 6.”
Now that the series has caught up to itself, we are firmly in the present, and Statham’s character is out for revenge.
“Fast and Furious 7” opens in theaters on July 11, 2014.
