Meanwhile, Vin Diesel had earlier confessed that he was not sure about being part of the "Fast And Furious" franchise when it began.
"Universal ended up being involved in the release of 'Pitch Black', the only other movie I had done of that size, and so they said, 'We got this movie that's about illegal street car racing, and we want you to play this character, who's a tough guy, outlaw, with a heart and a code'. "Then they describe that scene you see in the first movie, where the camera goes through my eye and down my arm and into the engine, and that's the only thing they described. And I said, 'Yes, I'm in!'" he said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly's 'Binge' podcast, according to a report in contactmusic.com.
However, Diesel started having doubts after some time.
"The next day I'm supposed to go the premiere in Australia for 'Pitch Black', and I read the script and I go -- I'm conflicted here, because this script is not what I thought it would be," he recalled.
