Vin Diesel has been taking a page straight from his 'Fast Six' co-star Dwayne Johnson's playbook -- Johnson has been posting pics from the set of Brett Ratner's 'Hercules' all summer, and lately, Diesel has been giving us a peek at the crew on the set of 'Fast and Furious 7,' getting us ever-more excited for the upcoming seventh installment of the franchise. And this time, the gang's (mostly) all here!
Dangerous car chases through heavily populated urban environments has always been a cornerstone of the wonderfully ludicrous 'Fast and Furious' series and the latest film is certainly not going to be an exception. Filming is currently underway on 'Fast and Furious 7' and the production is looking for some fans to fill out some key scenes.
Known for his work in the horror genre, James Wan has stepped behind the camera for something a little more action-packed with 'Fast and Furious 7.' We've gotten a peek at some of the interesting new cars being used in the film, but now star Vin Diesel is giving us a sneak preview of his own with these new photos of his character Dom (alongside co-star Paul Walker) on the set of the sequel.
It was announced over the summer that Vin Diesel will be voicing Groot in 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' but the actor has also been hinting at his involvement with a bigger Marvel project for Phase 3, which we won't see for a few more years. While it's all still very vague and hush-hush, the actor recently confirmed his further involvement with the studio, teasing the mysterious new project and hinting at a "merging of brands." All right, Vin, we're listening.
With the impending release of 'Riddick,' we're once again introduced to the character who truly put Vin Diesel on the map. You might even say he's the quintessential Diesel role, except you'd then have to be reminded of how perfect the actor is in the 'Fast & Furious' movies as Dom Toretto. So who is more badass, Toretto or Richard B. Riddick?
It should have been called ‘No Homo: The Movie.’
Vin Diesel, whose entire career feels like homage to the musclebound machismo of the 1980s, has possibly reached the peak – by which I mean, nadir – of his search for the meaning of virility. ‘Riddick,’ the overdue, and largely unwanted, third installment in Diesel’s first big film series, is so full of tough-guy overcompensation that it makes the ‘Fast and Furious’ movies seem like understated character studies by comparison.
Ever since it was announced that Vin Diesel was "in talks" to join 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as Groot, it seemed like the casting was a done deal and that it must have been the only reason that Diesel was meeting with Marvel (which he had teased weeks earlier). According to this recent interview, both assumptions are wrong.
After the overblown and overlong 'The Chronicles of Riddick,' it's something of a relief to see Vin Diesel's tough, sci-fi antihero return to his roots with 'Riddick.' The trailers have already sold a smaller, bloodier, more 'Pitch Black'-esque story and the newly released first clip from the film emphasize the most important part of the whole film: Diesel going mano-a-mano with a bunch of snarling extraterrestrial beasties.
