He told fans, “Universal has been so good to me and so trusting of the vision… they have been like family… I promised the studio I would deliver one last Trilogy to end the saga.”
There have been rumblings of trouble within the Fast and Furious camp. Apparently, Universal is having trouble locking down a director, while Vin Diesel himself has been accused of being difficult to work with on set in recent films.
Vin Diesel said that no one has been offered the director job just yet, though his message indicates that the process may be taking longer than the studio and his producing partner were expecting.
He added that he’ll announce the directors in his next post. Could James Wan and Justin Lin be helming the project as rumours suggest?
It’s also being reported that The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift star Lucas Black will come back to the franchise. He may help fill the gap left by the death of Paul Walker for the final trilogy.
