"When asked if there was something appealing about the Fast and Furious franchise, versus something like Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables, Russell said, "Yeah. I mean, I'm glad Sly's done well with this. He's a great person. The fellas all seem to have a good time. I've never seen any of them. It's not a beat I get. It's like looking backwards to me. There's something about Fast & Furious. It has that mystery to me -- and it's for a funny audience, you know? It's for a 15 to... 30? I think now you can take that from 15 to 45, and I think that's what's interesting about that. I like the way Vin talks about it -- it's a saga. It's not a series, it's a saga. I think that Paul dying is a part of that saga."
Well I'm not sure why he considers Fast And Furious 7 (and maybe 8) to be breaking new ground but there you have it. I strongly doubt we'll see Kurt Russell in any Expendables movie (let alone reprising the role of Snake Plissken). He's right that The Expendables is like looking back though; back to a better era of action movies...
"Alexander (Seagal) is the perfect soldier (*of course*) but when a little girl dies in his arms on a mission in Iraq - he goes off the grid. Sam Huang is an enforcer for the Chinese Triad, paying off his little sister Mya’s safe passage to the US. When the nefarious Mr. Chen sets up Sam to take the fall for murders he committed, he also kidnaps Mya and hands her over to the mob. The now recluse Alexander decides to help Sam get his sister back and wipe out the Triad. The body count rises as Alexander returns to what he does best - killing. But will it be enough for Alexander to be redeemed..."
Could this be the same "Mr. Alexander" from Force Of Execution? We'll have to wait and see.
