James Wan to direct Fast and Furious 7

Oh, I haven't laughed like this in a while.

James Wan (Saw, Insidious) has reportedly been selected to direct Fast and Furious 7 and is in talks to secure the spot due to the fact that Justin Lin is not returning to direct. If this happens he will have beaten out Jeff Wadlow, Harold Zwart, and Baltazar Kormakur for the director's chair.
Universal is planning for a release pretty soon (rumored for summer 2014) so this production needs to pick up the pace. So far we have Vin Diesel and Paul Walker returning. If Wan secures the role, which he probably will, the only thing he has going on right now is post-production for Insidious: Chapter 2 which is slated for a September 13, 2013 release. He also will have upcoming press for The Conjuring which is released on July 19, 2013.

I find it a bit odd that they are choosing a horror director for this movie, but I might actually see it. i haven't seen a Fast and Furious since Tokyo Drift... that shit.
