Tyrese Gibson, who plays Roman Pearce in the Fast franchise, uploaded a picture of himself standing in between Johnson and star Vin Diesel. “#Fast7 Set Pics…. Shout to my bros The Rock and Vin….,” he captioned the snap.
Johnson has been playing Luke Hobbs since 2011’s Fast Five and reprised the role for the first time in 2013’s Fast & Furious 6. "I had a blast creating Hobbs,” Johnson told Digital Spy about his Fast role. “That was one of the most fun characters I've ever played. It's very close to me, by the way, close to the heart – that type of hunter of men.”
In addition to Johnson, Gibson and Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris and Michelle Rodriguez will be reprising their roles in the franchise. Paul Walker, who died in a tragic car accident last November, will appear in Fast & Furious 7, though his brothers were asked to film scenes so that director James Wan could complete the film after Walker’s passing.
Fast & Furious 7 is slated to hit theaters April 10, 2015.
