Jason Statham is aboard Fast & Furious 7 according to Michelle Rodriguez.

It was believed that the British actor had turned down an offer to star in the seventh instalment of the popular franchise but it seems that he is on board.

And Rodriguez says that she is delighted at the latest name to be added to the cast list.

Speaking to Desde Hollywood the actress said: "Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, when you see these guys in a room you know they belong together.

"You can see in their eyes that they have gone through a lot... I applaud Universal for getting him on board!"

Fast & Furious 6 hits the big screen next week and will see Rodriguez return to the franchise for the first time since the fourth movie.

But plans have already been made for the seventh film and work is set to get underway this summer.

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson are all set to return while James Wan will take over the director's chair from Justin Lin.

Fast & Furious 6 is released 17th May.
