Has there been a more unexpected franchise hit then the 'Fast and the Furious' films? When Universal pumped out the first movie in 2001, there was no way they thought a sequel -- let alone a fifth and sixth one -- would be released. Ten years later though, two more movies are in the works and another major action star may join the fray. Come on down, Jason Statham.
According to Twitch, Statham is rumored to appear in the next two 'Fast' films when they begin shooting in 2012. There is still no word on who from the previous flicks will be returning, although, it's probably safe to assume Vin Diesel will be back (he's signed on to produce).

At this point, they might as well bring on the entire 'Expendables' cast, too.
