Go Now: Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Universal Hook Up for Fast & Furious 5

It is time to Go Now: bringing you the latest. So, let’s get started, shall we?

  • Talks are in place between Paul Walker and Vin Diesel with Universal to reprise their roles as hot roadsters Brian O’Connor and Dominic Toretto in Fast & Furious 5, the follow-up to this week’s #1 winner at the box office race. It is currently in the works. “They know where they want it to take place. They want to do it in Europe” Walker said at www.movie-moron.com.

    Even if it’s not a done deal, Diesel is thinking of continuing the character that made him an action hero when the original came out in 2001. “I actually thought about shooting the movies back-to-back with Universal with the president of the Universal and he was like, ‘What? We’re just getting our feet back together'” the actor said in Worst Previews.com. Catch up with Fast & Furious — in theatres now, and check out my review of it at The Student Operated Press.
