Vin Diesel Talks About The ‘Fast And The Furious’ Franchise
On Friday, Vin Diesel attended the premiere of ‘Fast X‘ in Rome. He, along with Michelle Rodriguez, gave an interview with Fandango to open up about the future of the franchise.
“It’s a really good question. As filmmakers, though, you want to allow people to enjoy the film without tipping the hat too much,” he said. “I can say this: going into making this movie, the studio had asked if this can be a two-parter“.
He added, “And after the studio saw this part one, they said ‘could you make Fast X, the finale, a trilogy?‘” When the reporter asked him to clarify his statement, Diesel said he is “going to get in trouble” if he spoke further.
