Remembering Paul Walker Tribute site for actor Paul Walker.

Vin Diesel Quitting ‘Fast And Furious’?

Vin Diesel understands how franchise movies work. While his return revived the dying franchise, he also knows that it kickstarted his career. So why will he quit after ‘Fast and Furious 7?’

It is as much a mystery as an uncertainty, but it is very evident that the confidence and swagger that he had after the success of “Fast and Furious 6” have diminished. Vin Diesel is as big a star as he’s ever been, but the loss of Paul Walker may have deflated the franchise.

The report from Yahoo Movies UK:

“Vin Diesel and other members of the cast will likely find filming difficult without their long term friend and it may be that working on the franchise loses a bit of its excitement and fun… some may find it just too strange to continue the franchise, particularly considering the nature of Walker’s untimely death.”

The producers have found a solution for the movie, but what happens afterwards is a big question mark, especially with Diesel. This has less to do with Walker’s death and more with the “Riddick” actor’s career options.

One of the more intriguing prospects is a possible Marvel project that he himself teased:

Yahoo Movies UK continues: “Diesel may also be led astray by his upcoming projects. He is starring in Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ which is likely to be, like all of Marvel’s other films, a huge success. Marvel don’t make stand alone films and particularly with the kind of box office the likes of ‘Iron Man’ and ‘The Avengers’ make, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ will almost certainly have countless sequels in the future. Never one to let a character go to waste, Diesel will also probably resurrect Riddick again for another outing one day but before that he is dredging up the character Xander Cage from ‘XXX’ for a third entry in that franchise after the last one starred Ice Cube. Add to these a videogame adaptation of ‘Kane and Lynch’, and Diesel looks set to be very busy over the next few years.”

While the idea of “countless sequels” may be a bit premature, there is also the notion that Diesel will have a different project with Marvel. One with more speaking lines.

“Fast and Furious 7” has a lot to offer. Jason Statham joins the franchise. James Wan of “Insidious” and “The Conjuring” fame steps aboard. The franchise will live on with or without Dominic Toretto or Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) as long as there is a story to tell. We’ll find out about that on April 10, 2015.

Win Brick Mansions Prize Pack!

Though Brick Mansions might not be on everyone’s radar, it definitely should be. Starring the late Paul Walker, RZA and David Belle, the film is a remake of French actioner District 13 and like the original, it looks to promise high-flying action that’s full of jaw-dropping parkour stunts.

I’m a huge fan of both District 13 and its sequel, District B13: Ultimatum, so I’m incredibly excited to see what they’ve done with the American remake. To celebrate its upcoming release (this Friday, April 25th), we’re giving away a prize pack to one lucky reader. Included is some cool branded content (pictured below), as well as the following Blu-Rays:

Before his death, Paul Walker said he liked being a risk-taker

Late actor Paul Walker, who was popular for his daredevilry acts in movies, liked to live on the edge.

The Fast And Furious star, who died in November 2013 following a car accident, was quizzed on being a risk taker before his death, said a statement.

“I think it’s one of those things where there’s that fine line, and you’re trying to find the balance of being in control-but you’re really not in control. The way I explain it is, you know that feeling when you’ve come close to getting in a car accident?”

“Your heart’s pounding because you just evaded it! It’s that moment of being fearful and then realising everything is okay, with your heart racing a mile a minute. It’s like, I’m definitely alive now. I love that,” said Walker.

Walker will soon thrill his fans with his last complete film Brick Mansions.

The film will hit [the Indian] screens on April 25.
