This is interesting news. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker have decided that together they're gold at the box office, but separately they're, well, not so much gold, which may be why the dynamic duo are re-teaming for the fourth installment of the "Fast and Furious" franchise. Also according to the trade, Justin Lin and Chris Morgan are also returning as director and writer, respectively, having previously helmed the previous installment, "Tokyo Drift". This kinda confirmation (THR says the acting duo are in negotiations to return) would seem to indicate that the 'Powers That Be' are fast-tracking "Furious 4" to beat the strike.
Expected release date:June 5th of 2009.
