Coming Soon posted Furious 7: Fun Facts & Trivia You Need To Know.
All of the trivia is interesting, but these are my two favorite facts from the list:
Denzel Washington turned the film down.
It’s rumored that Denzel Washington was originally asked to take part in the flick, but the Academy Award winning actor declined the role. Instead he was replaced with Kurt Russell who reportedly plays the role of Brian O’Conner’s father figure. Some speculation paints him as Dominic Toretto’s father figure instead.
Furious 7 is the sequel to The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
According to the storyline, the franchise’s fourth, fifth, and sixth releases were actually prequels to The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. The storyline for Furious 7 reportedly picks up after “Tokyo Drift” and continues the storyline.
