Vin Diesel parted ways with the Fast & Furious franchise in 2002, when he hitched his wagon to xXx as his , which he would go on to abandon, successfully dodging yet another sequel until he went on to make The Chronicles of Riddick in 2004. Never let it be said that Vin Diesel knows what is best for Vin Diesel.
Paul Walker, however, knows full well what is best for Paul Walker and that opportunities for reliable work will not come freely to a man of his modest abilities, so he returned to the Fast & Furious franchise without hesitation. He is, in essence, a less ambitious Keanu Reeves and that is just fine with me.
Just to be clear, I am not a gearhead in the slightest. My interest in cars extends as far as admiring the colour and shininess of them. I don't watch Top Gear, the extent of my knowledge under the hood is checking the oil and topping up the water, and I neglect my car on a regular basis. Seriously, if you were to sit inside it now, it would look like I murdered a hobo with a bag of sand.

Christopher McQuarrie is better known as the Oscar-winning writer of 1995's The Usual Suspects. He also has some directing chops with the very underrated Way of the Gun back in 2000. It wasn't until last year's Jack Reacher that he got back in the saddle. The movie was critically well received and made a decent amount of money, raking in over $210M worldwide. Plans for a sequel are still up in the air so McQuarrie is looking for other projects to use his many talents on and he may have found one or two.
