Last week, we reported that “Fast and Furious” co-star Michelle Rodriguez had confirmed Jason Statham’s involvement in the seventh installment by expressing her delight about Universal’s decision to cast him.
But the beautiful Latina actress is not the only one who can’t wait to work with Jason Statham. Co-star Paul Walker, who plays FBI agent Brian O’Conner, is also thrilled about the new British addition.
“Jason is going to be a killer addition. He’s super competitive too – I know it – but I think in terms of what he represents, he’s an iconic figure at this point,” he told the press at the world premiere of “Fast and Furious 6” in London, UK.
Paul added, “He’s been around kicking butt, driving cars and doing it well for a long time so when people see him step on screen, he automatically comes with a certain degree of reverence. So to go heads up with him is going to be fun, for sure.”
“Fast and Furious 7” is rumored to start filming in September, so keep your eyes and ears open.
It’s always such a treat to start the week off with something Jason Statham work related, so our thanks goes out to Filmofilia for sharing over fifty(!) new “Redemption” film stills, which allow you to take a closer look at Jason Statham as Joey Jones.

We are so excited about Jason Statham’s new Indie film because he always shines as an actor when he is given decent material to work with. And, “Joey Jones” seems to be one of these well-written characters that guarantees a compelling story line.
“Hummingbird” receives the new title of “Redemption” along with its updated versions of poster and trailer, which were added to our Redemption film page. We are uncertain whether the name change is in the film’s best interest since “Hummingbird” sounded not only appealing but also very intriguing. Anyway, as long as the film comes out and isn’t postponed again, we are happy campers in the Jason Statham universe.

DesdeHollywood was one of the press outlets attending the “Fast & Furious 6” World Premiere in London, UK, today, May 07, 2013 and chatted with actress Michelle Rodriguez, who plays Letty Ortiz.
When asked what Jason Statham would bring to the “Fast & Furious” franchise, the beautiful Latina answered, “Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, when you see these guys in a room you know they belong together […] You can see in their eyes that they have gone through a lot […] I applaud Universal for getting him on-board!”
And so do we!
Yes, it’s true and absolutely legal.
