The whole “Fast and the Furious” franchise may not be high art, but man, people sure love the hell out of it. Maybe it’s the fast cars and loose women, or maybe it’s just the fast cars; either way, “The Fast and the Furious 4″ is coming to a theater near you in 2009, and Vin Diesel talked to MTV about it. In a word: He’s jazzed to come back to the franchise that made him famous.
“I think doing the cameo in ‘Tokyo Drift’ confirmed a lot of things for me. It confirmed that if you create a role that the world kind of identifies with, or the world adopts, sometimes you have that responsibility to revisit that role,” Diesel enthused of his character Dominic Toretto from the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, which he will revisit in the series’ upcoming fourth installment.
Most fans had given up on the idea of once again seeing Diesel in arguably his most famous part, but it turns out the actor just likes to take his time.
“I’m a little bit slower than the average actor that just jumps into the sequel, but I think the time has come to revisit Dom Toretto.”
And yes, he confirms that Walker will return, but we already knew that, didn’t we?
