Vin Diesel will continue to live his “life a quarter mile at a time.”
Diesel announced Wednesday on Facebook that he will be starring in the upcoming “Fast and Furious” live show.
Universal Studios is teamed up with Brand Events for the international arena tour, based on the hit franchise, which kicks off in January.
“As you know, my work with ‘Fast and Furious’ never ends, which I’m grateful for because of you all,” Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto, said in the Facebook video. “I am in New York, believe it or not, and we are filming something that is going to be pretty state of the art, something no one’s ever seen before, which is a live show.”
The actor also told fans that the show will launch in the United Kingdom.
“I think it’s first going to be showed at the O2 Arena in London, but it’s going to go all over the world and we’re really excited about it,” Diesel added. “It’ll be a way for you to see the action first-hand, first time it’s ever been done.”
The show will include re-creations of some of the stunts and cars in the eight-film franchise, which is still expanding. The executive producers are Chris Hughes and James Cooke-Priest, along with writer/director Rowland French.
