Fast and Furious 7 director James Wan is "fast" at work as production on the highly anticipated film has started. Wan is already knee deep in the action, judging by the below set photos released on the film’s Twitter account.

The biggest news among the tweets is about the rumored casting of Kurt Russell, who was “almost about to join #Fast7. He would play the father of Jesse, and he would be Toretto’s villain.”

So, there you have it, Russell is not in Fast and Furious 7, despite what other publications have reported.

And from the sound of the plot, it would have been pretty darn awesome. “He would work together with @realjstatham (Jason Statham, seen in the final moments of Fast and Furious 6) in the film to take revenge on Toretto and his family.”

Oh, what could have been!

Fast and Furious 7 does star Vin Diesel (recently seen in Riddick), Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson and will hit theaters July 11, 2014.

For fans of Wan, his Insidious: Chapter 2 lands in theaters September 13.

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

I'm back, bitches!
