‘Fast and Furious’ actor Vin Diesel has a special surprise for all Paul Walker fans with his upcoming Furious trilogy that he announced few days ago. According to the actor, it was Paul Walker’s wish to have the original director of the first ‘Fast and Furious’ film, Rob Cohen, to direct one more film for the franchise. And with the recent director dilemma faced by the cast and Universal, it looks like Vin will be trying his best to fulfill Paul’s wish and bring Rob back for ‘Furious 8’!
Vin wrote on his Facebook page, “There has always been the desire by Paul to have Rob direct one more, this is what fueled my campaign… I believe that he can and would reset the franchise nicely, returning to what was the core of the film in the beginning… racing. He would also handle the Brian O’connor issue with integrity, given that he and David Ayer were the ones who initially created that beloved character in the first place.”
According to the actor, all he can think of nowadays is the ‘Furious’ trilogy that he announced to end the film’s franchise. Which means the audience will have 3 more ‘Furious’ films to cherish before the series comes to an end. While talking about Rob Cohen and his direction, Vin Diesel feels like he can do justice to the street racing theme of the original films. ‘Fast and Furious’ that started off as a street racing film went on to become action adventures filled with deadly stunts and dangerous villains and what not!
The actor also revealed a wish made by his mother who stated, “Either you direct 8 yourself… or don’t do it.” But the actor seems to have taken it as only his mother’s love and belief in her son rather than anything else. Vin Diesel will soon be gearing up for the promotion of his next film ‘The Last Witch Hunter’ and will be starting production of the long awaited ‘Xander Returns’.
