Maybe those two aren't but Vin Diesel is a Producer of the films now so all it would take would be for either Ludacris or Tyrese to ask him about it and then leave him to flex his muscles. I think in the end the biggest thing stopping Halle from joining the cast is Halle herself. But she needs to join another big budget franchise, a lot of A list actors are part of more than just one franchise and currently Halle only has X-Men.
And Fast 7 needs more female characters there aren't nearly as enough as you would expect from a film like this.
