The Rock fights Jason Statham in new ‘Fast & Furious 7’ teaser – watch

Car chase sequel zooms into cinemas on April 3

An new teaser for Fast & Furious 7 has been released, featuring a fight scene between Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jason Statham.

Fast & Furious 7 –simply titled Furious 7 in the US – is set for release on April 3. The car chase sequel features the last film appearance from the late Paul Walker, who died in a car accident midway through filming. Shooting was subsequently delayed to allow for script rewrites and the actor’s brothers Caleb and Cody Walker were used as stand-ins to complete his final scenes.

Fast & Furious franchise regulars Johnson, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster and Ludacris all return, while Statham plays the film’s main villain after making a brief appearance in 2013’s Fast & Furious 6. New additions to the cast include Kurt Russell, The Expendables 3‘s Ronda Rousey and Blood Diamond actor Djimon Hounsou.

Meanwhile, Iggy Azalea has filmed a cameo for Fast & Furious 7 and the rapper recently admitted that the experience gave her a new-found appreciation for actors.

Saw director James Wan called the shots from a script by regular Fast & Furious franchise writer Chris Morgan.
