    it would be a miracle if they can somehow piece the previous F&F's plots to this one.. but having those two in the movie would definately put asses in the seats

    Amen Frenzy, just go take a look at "The Pacifier" and tell me if you can still respect the guy. I heard a rumor that they were considering him for the Terminator in T4... If that happens, I'd be routing for the machines to win.

    I used to be bothered by the fact that Vin didn't do the sequel, but he was the one who refused to do it. I loved the first movie, but I could care less if Vin comes back, infact I don't think he deserves to. His career hasn't taken the "huge action star" turn he wanted it to take, so now he wants to do a sequel cause he can't find work... Piss off Vin, you deserve to be left in mediocrity.

    I really hope they do it cause its always bugged me as to what happened to Vin Diesels character after the first one. I mean we know what happened to Paul Walker but what happened to Vin? its never really explained.

    The reunion of Diesel and Walker could bring the original spark back to the franchise...when F&F3 came out, everybody into the series freaked out and cheered when Diesel showed up at the end. Diesel will bring the badass quotient back, Walker, the laid back just do it , zeitgeist.

    Seriouslly? i thought the first was a waste of time to see and though i didn't see the sequels i'm sure they were bad, but i guess there are some people out there who want more of this.
