Michelle Rodriguez has revealed at the London premiere of Fast & Furious 6 that Jason Statham is slated to appear in the franchise's next outing.

The hugely lucrative series will add a seventh movie to its collection in 2014, and Rodriguez has told reporters to expect to see the British action hardman featuring prominently alongside existing regulars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson.

"When you see these guys in a room, you know they belong together," she told DesdeHollywood.

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

Diesel had previously let slip that yet another film was being made, letting slip on Facebook that filming starts this summer.

He wrote: "There was an early screening in LA this week of Fast 6. The crowd reaction was surreal… and their demand for the continuation was powerful… It’s remarkable to think I first embodied this character in 1999… and the evolution continues.

"P.s. Filming begins this summer in LA, where it all started… talk about a studio in sync with the audience."
