The latest film in the long-running franchise, Fast and Furious 9 got postponed amid Coronavirus outbreak. However, that hasn't kept actor Vin Diesel from talking about the franchise and its possible future. In a recent talk, the actor revealed insight into the future of Fast and Furious films. Diesel also opened up on losing his friend Paul Walker during the Fast and Furious 7 shooting.

 
He said, "I was so reluctant to go back to filming,” Diesel said adding he “felt like the studio was asking me to go back to a funeral. I was so broken by it and didn’t want anyone to use the tragedy as a story plot.”
 
"We were able to do something so beautiful and so classy. It might be the best moment in cinematic history. Not just my career but in cinematic history. Men around the world, well everyone in the world, but men around the planet for the first time in history were able to cry together, " he added.
 
In his talk to the USA today Diesel shared some moments from an interview from 2013 with Paul Walker. He said, "He was always so excited and so proud that his brother was thinking of these films before the studio before anyone knew that there was another one coming and another one coming and that the stories had been worked out for him. [Walker] took great pride in that."
 
Diesel said that he intends to keep his promise to Walker and quit the Fast and Furious franchise after the lucky number 10 gets crossed.
