• Hollywood veteran Kurt Russell is in talks to join the seventh installment of the Fast & Furious franchise in an undisclosed part for director James Wan (The Conjuring). We kind of hope he’ll just be playing Snake Plissken. The famously private actor has been somewhat absent from movies recently. 2007’s Death Proof was his last high-profile role. Russell has a few more projects in the works including the Jay Baruchel-starring comedy The Art of the Steal, and Bone Tomahawk, a Western with Peter Sarsgaard and Jennifer Carpenter. [Variety]

Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) is set to voice the CG Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, set for an Aug. 1, 2014 theatrical release. This is Cooper’s first venture into voiceover work. [Marvel]

• Kathleen Turner (The Virgin Suicides) has signed on to join Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber To, the secretive sequel to their 1994 comedy. Bobby and Peter Farrelly are returning to direct the movie, which is expected to begin shooting soon, aiming for a summer 2014 release. [Variety]
