Director James Wan on Fast and Furious 7


“It doesn’t matter how big or small your film is, you still don’t have enough money. You don’t have enough time to shoot it. When you’re making a bigger movie you have much bigger set pieces that require more time and more effort and more people. But Fast 7 is definitely the hardest movie I’ve had to do in my career.” 

That quote was from Director James Wan in his interview with Collider on shooting Fast and Furious 7. The passing of Paul Walker who was arguably the franchise’s star was (still) tough for his family and his fans, but I can only imagine what it was like for those involved in Fast and Furious 7. I’m sure a lot of people have read interviews, and seen photos and videos of the film’s co stars Tyrese, Vin Diesel, and Dwayne Johnson express the difficulties of losing someone so suddenly who was less like a friend and more like a brother. Then for Director James Wan to step in as the franchise’s new director and work diligently took a toll.

” It’s the hardest film I’ve ever had to make but it’s also the one I’m proudest of. I’m really proud of this film.”

Somehow the cast and crew were able to pull together like a family, and finish what they started. That reason alone I think is worth a $10 ticket to see the final product.
