Vin Diesel has never been shy about telling his 2 million Facebook fans what he's working on. And his fans are eager to learn what's going on with "Furious 8," especially after a story in The Hollywood Reporter said it did not have a director.
What's more, franchise favorite Justin Lin turned down what a THR source called "life-altering money" to do the eighth installment in the franchise. The story also noted that "Furious 7" director James Wan declined to come back because the demands of making "7" compromised his health.
Many fans have suggested that Diesel, who has been a producer on the franchise since "Fast & Furious" (2009), take the directing reins for "Furious 8."
Diesel took to Facebook and said he would not be the director, as it was "too special a franchise," but he said he would be announcing the director in his next post.
The actor also proclaimed: "I promised the studio I would deliver one last Trilogy to end the saga."
So get read for not one, but three more "Fast and the Furious" movies.
Below is Diesel's Facebook post.
