Vin Diesel wants a MUSICAL version of “The Fast and the Furious”

The “Fast and Furious” franchise has outdone itself with each new movie, surprising fans with how the plot has evolved from simple street racing to space missions.

And if it depends on Vin Diesel, interpreter of Dom Toretto, the franchise could even win a musical version.

During an interview for The Kelly Clarkson Show (via Comic Book), the star was asked about the idea and didn’t rule out the possibility.

“Well, I’m dying to make a musical,” he said.

Diesel also revealed that he is a huge fan of musicals and almost appeared in one with director Steven Spielberg.

“I was interested in staring in ‘Guys and Dolls’ with Steven Spielberg, but we ended up not doing it. For a long time, I thought that Nathan Detroit’s role in ‘Guys and Dolls’ would be very interesting. ‘he was renewed, the character that Frank Sinatra played, you know?

For those who don’t know, Diesel is also taking risks in his singing career and even released two songs last year, titled “Feel Like I Do” and “Days Are Gone”.

However, it looks like the musical version of ‘The Fast and the Furious’ is far from happening, officially.

“The Fast and the Furious 9” became the biggest box office of 2021, with $ 721 million collected worldwide. The film is right behind ‘007: No Time to Die’ which grossed $ 734 million.

With success, the franchise will gain two more sequels, and they will be filmed simultaneously.

In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Diesel revealed that “Fast and Furious 10 and 11” will be shot at the same time – even taking the opportunity to reveal the films’ release predictions.

“It will be simultaneous. The idea is to launch them in February 2023 and February 2024 respectively. We should have released [‘Velozes e Furiosos 9’] last year, before the pandemic. So I think what’s going to be different about the release is that we’re going to have a year of development and pre-production for “The Fast and Furious 10”. And so I do these interviews and it’s weird because I have to go back to the ninth movie. I’m celebrating the launch, but I have so much more to celebrate.

Diesel recently brought in Dwayne Johnson to join the franchise after a public feud between the two.

In the caption Diesel wrote:

“My little brother Dwayne… The time has come. The world is waiting for the end of “The Fast and the Furious 10”. As you know my kids call you Uncle Dwayne at home. No vacation goes by without you exchanging happy messages… But the time has come. The inheritance awaits. I told you years ago that I would keep my promise to Pablo. I swore we would do our best in the 10th movie. I say that out of love… But you have to show yourself, don’t leave the franchise inactive, because you have a very important role to play. Hobbs cannot be experienced by anyone else. I hope you will rise to the occasion and fulfill your destiny.

Can’t wait to see “The Fast and Furious 10 & 11”?
