Paul Walker and Vin Diesel spoke at a “Fast & Furious” press junket, revealing that fifth installment in the franchise is in the works.
When asked about a possible fifth movie in the franchise, Walker said:
“No but I’ve heard it. I’ve heard it in the rumor mill. Like, I’ve spoken with executives at Universal at this point, and they’re pretty serious about it. They know where they want it to take place. They want to do it in Europe.”
On the subject on Vin Diesel reprising his Toretto role for a third time, Walker was pretty candid:
”I know Vin’s in there already”
Walker would also love to see Tyrese Gibson‘s character from “2 Fast 2 Furious” return.
”Oh, man, he’s my brother. I love that guy. I had so much fun with him making the second one. He’s just one of those people that’s fun to be around. He’s just a big kid.”
