The hiring of Wan was a stroke of genius. Whether it was in his Saw days, Insidious or the aforementioned The Conjuring, the man knows how to build suspense. Sure, it was horror… but edge of your seat moments transcend genre and Wan is a master.

Wan also announced that he had hired mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey for a role in the film that is tentatively set to debut July 11, 2014. Hey, that’s less than a year away!

The helmer just came out of a production meeting for his latest film and by the sounds of his tweet, he’s pretty pumped. "Last night's production meeting went for about 6 hours -- from 7pm to 1am. #epic."

And yes, if you saw Fast and Furious 6, you know a huge action star has joined the franchise too, none other than Jason Statham.

Furious 7 Quotes

[remembering the time he had with Brian] I used to say I live my life a quarter mile at a time and I think that's why we were brothers - because you did too. No matter where you are, whether it's a quarter mile away or half way across the world. The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room, right here, right now. Salute mi familia. You'll always be with me. And you'll always be my brother.

Dominic Toretto
