Some people may judge that most of our 80s actions stars are over-the-hill and washed up, but I say NAY!! I mean look at Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jean Claude Van Damme! They’re still in the game and kicking ass even if they are considered past their prime. In any case, the actor that I’m getting at is none other than Kurt Russell!
According to Variety, it looks like Kurt is in talks to play a role that that was originally offered to Denzel Washington. If he does take the role, Kurt Russell would be joining Paul Waker, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Ronda Rousey, Tony Jaa, and Tyrese Gibson on the big screen.
This would be a great opportunity for Mr. Russell since he hasn’t been in any real big hits for quite some time. The lost big role that he had was in Death Proof, and that was quite some time ago. I personally saw Kurt Russell at Disneyland as a guest host when they had the choirs from the local schools performing for Christmas.
Fast & Furious 7 is planned to be released on July 11, 2014 and is also set to be filmed in Atlanta.
