Paul Walker's Daughter Meadow Reunites With Vin Diesel's Children in Cute Selfie

A mini Fast and Furious reunion happened this week as Meadow Walker reunited with Vin Diesel and his children.

Meadow, 21, is the daughter of the late Paul Walker and shared a cute picture with Vin‘s three children, Vincent, Similce, and Pauline, who was named after Meadow‘s dad.

The outdoor snap shows the quartet showing off their radiant smiles behind and next to Meadow, who wore a maroon hoodie and hoop earrings for the shot.

“Family, forever,” she captioned the picture, tagging Vin in it.

Late last year, Vin penned his own sweet tribute to Meadow for her 21st birthday.

“I could say that I am so proud of the person you are becoming… but the truth is I have always been proud of you,” he wrote on Instagram.

Vin Diesel Says This Oscar-Winning Director is Urging Him to Direct More

It sounds like Vin Diesel will be getting behind the camera as a director more often!

During a recent interview, the 52-year-old actor revealed that Steven Spielberg recently urged him to direct more movies.

“Speaking of Steven Spielberg, I saw him recently, and he had said to me, ‘When I wrote the role for you in Saving Private Ryan, I was obviously employing the actor, but I was also secretly championing the director in you, and you have not directed enough. That is a crime of cinema and you must get back in the directing chair.’” Vin shared with The National. “I haven’t directed enough.”

If you didn’t know, Vin directed, wrote, produced, and starred in the 1997 movie Strays, where he played a drug dealer looking for a better life.

Before that, Vin directed starred in the 1995 short film Multi-Facial, which lead Steven to cast him Saving Private Ryan.

Later on in the interview, Vin says he hopes to direct a film about Hannibal Barca, the military general from Carthage who fought the Romans during the Second Punic War around 200 BC.

“I haven’t done it yet,” Vin added. “As much as I am grateful for the accomplishments, there are moments when I go ‘God, you promised the universe, very specifically, the Hannibal Barca trilogy, and you haven’t delivered it. You traveled all over the world.’”

If you missed it, Vin Diesel also recently revealed he’s recording an album!

Vin Diesel & Sam Heughan's 'Bloodshot' to Be Available on Digital on March 24, Just 11 Days After Hitting Theaters

The new comic-book movie Bloodshot will be released for digital purchase on March 24, just 11 days after the film hit theaters.

Vin Diesel, Sam Heughan, Eiza Gonzalez, and Lamorne Morris star in the new film, which opened on March 13 and earned just $9,722,037 in its theatrical run due to the coronavirus outbreak.

After only a few days in theaters, all movie theaters around the country have been shut down due to social distancing mandates amid the pandemic.

“Sony Pictures is firmly committed to theatrical exhibition and we support windowing,” Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman said in a statement (via THR). “This is a unique and exceedingly rare circumstance where theaters have been required to close nationwide for the greater good and Bloodshot is abruptly unavailable in any medium. Audiences will now have the chance to own Bloodshot right away and see it at home, where we are all spending more time. We are confident that — like other businesses hit hard by the virus — movie theaters will bounce back strongly, and we will be there to support them.”

Bloodshot will be available for the digital purchase price of $19.99. It’s not clear when the movie will be available for rentals.

Other current movies that will be released on digital include The Invisible Man, The Hunt, Emma, and Birds of Prey. The upcoming film Trolls World Tour will be getting a VOD release in April.

Vin Diesel Talks About Going Back To Filming 'Fast & Furious 7' After Paul Walker's Death

Vin Diesel has opened up about returning to filming on Fast & Furious 7 just after Paul Walker had died.

In his recent interview with NME, the 52-year-old actor revealed that he was very reluctant to go back to the set after the events that happened.

“I felt like the studio was asking me to go back to a funeral,” Vin admitted. “I was so broken by it.”

However, going back to the set had Vin part of what he calls “the best moment in cinematic history.”

“I didn’t want anyone to use the tragedy as a story plot,” he continued. “It was so important to me…It was a very, very tough moment. But there was some solace in the fact that we were able to protect from the natural whim of a producer or anyone to say, ‘Well now you’re going to go avenge the character,’ and use it as a plot and we were able to do something so beautiful and so classy.”

Vin added the scene actually “might be the best moment in cinematic history.”

“Not just in my career but in cinematic history. Men around the world—everyone was able to cry—but men around the planet for the first time in history were able to cry together.”

The ending of Fast & Furious 7 was seen as a send off to Paul Walker, and his character, Brian.

Vin Diesel Confirms He's Recording An Album with Original Music!

Vin Diesel is looking to make the move to music!

While making an appearance on The Late Late Show on Thursday night (March 12) with his Bloodshot co-star Eiza Gonzalez, host James Corden brought up a photo of the 52-year-old actor recording at the Abbey Road Studios.

“Tell me honestly, is there a Vin Diesel album in the works?,” James asked.

“Yes there is!,” Vin admitted, as he jumped up excitedly from his seat. “I gotta be honest with you James, my kids love when I sing and they love it so much – it’s kind of like J. R. R. Tolkien, he started telling his kids stories about Hobbits and next thing you know he went onto Lord of the Rings. I have a little bit of that in me!”

“I wish I could play all the music for you,” Vin continued. “I’m really lucky to have some really original great music. Nothing in the world is better than seeing my four-year-old daughter walking around the house singing these songs that she hears me playing now. It’s the most beautiful thing in the world. To be able to share that, there’s nothing more beautiful than that.”

Vin Diesel has been known to sing pretty much whatever you ask and most recently shared a brand new cover of Lewis Capaldi‘s “Somebody You Loved” on Instagram for Valentine’s Day – Watch it HERE!

Vin Diesel Says Oscar Winners Ask To Be In 'Fast & Furious' Franchise!

Everyone wants a taste of the Fast & Furious franchise!

While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night (March 9), Vin Diesel opened up about the big star cameos in the ninth movie in the Fast & The Furious franchise, F9: The Fast Saga.

John Cena, who is such a blessing to work with and so incredible. Obviously we have Helen Mirren. Obliviously Charlize [Theron]. My daughter wanted a piece of casting to happen so Cardi B is in it,” Vin confirmed.

“Strange enough twenty years ago you wouldn’t have thought this but now we do have Oscar winners all asking to be part of the film. It’s bizarre,” Vin added as Jimmy asked him if he could reveal some of these Oscar winners: “That’s a great question. I may give away a little too much, there’s some secrets that have to remain close to the chest.”

Vin also talked about what he’s doing to protect himself against the Coronavirus, celebrating his daughter’s birthday, his love of pigeons, making his new film Bloodshot, his mom’s love of astrology, and his real friendship with Michael Caine.

F9: The Fast Saga hits theaters this summer – Watch the trailer HERE!
