Vin Diesel and Paul Walker Are in Talks to Star in ‘The Fast and the Furious 4’

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are in negotiations to reunite for the fourth installment of Universal's The Fast and the Furious franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Justin Lin and Chris Morgan, who were behind The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, are returning to directing and writing duties, respectively.

The storyline of the as-yet-untitled installment is being kept under wraps, but fast cars are involved.

A spring start is anticipated with shooting in Los Angeles, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

The Fast and the Furious, released in 2001, was a surprise hit, grossing more than $144 million and creating a franchise for the studio while making stars our of Diesel and Walker. Only Walker returned for the sequel, 2Fast 2Furious, and sat out the third installment, 2005's The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. That movie had relative newcomer Lucas Black in the driver's seat but did feature Diesel in a cameo at the end of the movie.

The Fast and the Furious was released June 22nd, 2001.

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift was released June 16th, 2006.

2 Fast 2 Furious was released June 6th, 2003.

    it would be a miracle if they can somehow piece the previous F&F's plots to this one.. but having those two in the movie would definately put asses in the seats

      I watch them and their Rad to me. Talk about original when their stealing all of the GREAT horror movie and making them sh*tty. I'd rather watch Fast And The Furious then one of the STUPID horror remakes !!!!!

            Amen Frenzy, just go take a look at "The Pacifier" and tell me if you can still respect the guy. I heard a rumor that they were considering him for the Terminator in T4... If that happens, I'd be routing for the machines to win.

              I used to be bothered by the fact that Vin didn't do the sequel, but he was the one who refused to do it. I loved the first movie, but I could care less if Vin comes back, infact I don't think he deserves to. His career hasn't taken the "huge action star" turn he wanted it to take, so now he wants to do a sequel cause he can't find work... Piss off Vin, you deserve to be left in mediocrity.

                I really hope they do it cause its always bugged me as to what happened to Vin Diesels character after the first one. I mean we know what happened to Paul Walker but what happened to Vin? its never really explained.

                    The reunion of Diesel and Walker could bring the original spark back to the franchise...when F&F3 came out, everybody into the series freaked out and cheered when Diesel showed up at the end. Diesel will bring the badass quotient back, Walker, the laid back just do it , zeitgeist.

                      Seriouslly? i thought the first was a waste of time to see and though i didn't see the sequels i'm sure they were bad, but i guess there are some people out there who want more of this.

                              I really hope Diesel comes back. He needs a new hit. Where has he been?

                                True but surprisingly the third was the better of the three so who knows.
