Vin "Begging" for Fourth "Furious"? Not So Fast.

7/23/2007 6:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vin DieselIs Vin Diesel's career so pacified that he's "begging" to get back behind the wheel of a low-riding Japanese import tuner?

A source tells TMZ that contrary to a report in Sunday's Page Six, Vin isn't desperate to do the fourth installment of the "Fast and the Furious," and the reason he passed on the second and third sequels was because he was off doing other hits -- like "Chronicles of Riddick" and "The Pacifier."

As for the Post's report about his current project, "Babylon A.D.," being in deep financial straits, and rampant on-set clashes between Diesel and director Mathieu Kassovitz, we're told that there was "no scandal," and that "the budget of the film was over as is normal" for such big-budget projects.

After he refused to be the new cool James Bond in the "XXX" sequel, I gave up on him. Too late now Vin Disel.

warrior caliber    

who could blame him for not wanting to be in fast in the furious 2 and 3? those were two of the most generic scripts in the world. the man can afford to be picky and do what ever he chooses. he made the original fast and the furious the only palatable part of the movie with his presence and his charm. good luck to him and his future films. He truly was charming in the Pacifier, no matter how much crap people give him for making it. "Knockaround Guys" is by far his best film and he has a natural physique and power for action films. He lends something to the screen that I have never seen in an actor and if they make a 4th FATF based around his character, it wuld be worth seeing.

PS.

Someone let the man know that I have some script ideas for him, and not in a "wink wink-nudge nudge way" either.
