Well, this is a disappointing interview and no mistake; I think a lot of us have wondered why Kurt Russell would rather be in The Fast & Furious franchise rather than The Expendables.
In a recent interview with IGN he discusses why he chose Fast and Furious:
Looking backwards? Uh yeah, that’s kinda the point of The Expendables, Kurt. As our friends over at Expendables Premiere said, looking back at an era of better action movies.
Mind you, which franchise is more financially successful? Fast and Furious, so he’s obviously going for the wider exposure and probably larger paycheck, which is understandable.
Kurt hasn’t been in anything decent for several years though, starring in such classics as Flicka… yeah, that’s a real step forward, Kurt.
Fast and Furious 7 is resuming filming in April and will be out next year.
