‘F9’ – the latest installment of the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise – may not race into theaters until June 25, but its main star, Vin Diesel, is always thinking of ways to expand the film’s legacy.
Although already hard-at-work fleshing out the details of the follow-up to ‘F9,’ the Cardi B-casted ‘F10’ (click here to read more), the 53-year-old recently took to ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ to express an unexpected desire to drive the action flick series from the big screen onto the live stage.
Hear it from his lips inside:
In the lengthy chat, Diesel shared clips from ‘F9’ and also discussed how Queen Latifah influenced his music career.
When quizzed on if he’d ever consider pursuing musical theater again, especially via an iteration of his famous ‘Furious’ franchise, he revealed (at the 15:15 mark):
“I’m dying to do a musical,” he said before continuing, “I was close to doing ‘Guys & Dolls’ with Steven Spielberg but we ended up not doing that.”
Already one of the longest-running film franchises in history, fans of the ‘Fast & Furious’ may just see its next chapter on the stages of Broadway.
