Fast & Furious 5 in the works

Speaking at the U.S press day for “Fast and Furious”, stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker confirmed that the wheels are already turning on another installment – and yeah, Vin’s happy to do another.

“It’s beyond rumors at this point,” Walker said, according to MoviesOnline. “I’ve spoken with executives at Universal and they’re pretty serious about it. They’re developing it. They know where they want it to take place. They want to do it in Europe”.

“I’d really want everyone to do their due diligence and put time into it [if we were to do another]” says Walker. “I don’t think it’d be too hard to make the very best one yet. I don’t think the best one yet has been made yet. If we were going to go make a fifth one, that one would have to be the best one in my mind. Otherwise, let’s not do it.”

Walker would love to have a say in the development of the fifth film’s script but admits it’s pretty hard to get a word in when Diesel’s already in the room.

”I know Vin’s in there already. So I’d like to get my day in court, too. He’s got a big voice and he stays on it. He holds some pretty tight reins. I’m more like, ‘Things will come around the way that they’re supposed to. Let’s be organic. Let’s sit down and talk and see how it flows.’ Vin will be in there going like this and moving things around. But I think that’s where we compliment each other. I think that might be a big part of the reason why people think that we have chemistry or whatever it seems to be. It’s just that our approaches are so different in everything.”

Walker is lobbying to get Tyrese Gibson (“2 Fast 2 Furious”) into the next one.

”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.”

Meanwhile, The Los Angeles Times reports that “Fast and Furious” – this latest one – was originally set to be a spin-off featuring only Diesel’s character, Dominic Torreto.

“We started talking to him about developing a Dominic Toretto movie,” said Neil Moritz, who produced all four “Fast and the Furious” movies. “We were calling it ‘Toretto.’ It wasn’t going to bring the whole cast back. But that was the jumping-off point for the new movie.”
