Sounds like Vin Diesel wants Rob Cohen to direct Fast & Furious 8
So Vin Diesel ended up not revealing who will be directing FAST & FURIOUS 8 with his next Facebook post, however it does kind of sound like Diesel wants Rob Cohen, his THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS and XXX director, to return to the series and helm the next entry. The actor also said Paul Walker always wanted Cohen to direct another F&F movie, and Diesel believes the filmmaker would bring the franchise back to its racing roots.
Although Vin Diesel was perhaps just feeling nostalgic, I wouldn't be surprised if he is actually trying to convince Universal that Rob Cohen should be behind the camera for FAST & FURIOUS 8. Personally, I'd rather see what a new director to the series would do with the next film instead of having Cohen helm another installment. I'm also not sure if the studio will want to give Cohen the keys to the franchise, since his most recent movies haven't been that great. What are your thoughts on Rob Cohen possibly being a contender to helm FAST & FURIOUS 8?
