Vin Diesel Topics
What was bizarre, when I was younger, I never watched TV. I would rather watch a movie 100 times than to watch a TV show, just to find another nuance. I can't tell you how many times I've watched 'On the Waterfront', just to find a flaw so that I can learn and try to improve my thing.
Obviously, for me, story is first and foremost, even in the face of the attractive idea of having all the cast there, or having a great piece of talent come to it.
When I first did 'The Fast and the Furious', I didn't want there to be a sequel on the first one. I thought, 'Why would you rush to do a sequel - just because your first film is successful?'
I was being offered three franchises at the same time - Pitch Black, XXX, and The Fast and the Furious - and I had to choose. I couldn't do all three.
I would get into fights with other bouncers when a guy was already on the floor and the other guys thought it was alright to jump up in the air and land on the guy's head.
I shaved my head about 15 years ago and the first time I shaved it, I started running my hand through my hair and it was very therapeutic.
The idea of exploring character relations and their development over a decade has to be appealing for any actor who cherishes his craft.
There are a lot of films that explore sci-fi...What attracted me to the script is the fact that this film stands on its own. The characters and their relationships are interesting by themselves, without the creature element. In many ways it's a modern day 'Lord of the Flies.'
The more you know about the Dungeons and Dragons, the more you`ll see the thought process that went into the Chronicles of Riddick mythology.
The honest reason was my niece and nephew weren't allowed to see Uncle Vin movies, and they're my biggest fans. I guess I got a little sick of, 'No, you can't come to this one no, you can't come to that one.' And they're, 'But I saw the poster, Uncle Vin.'
From the very very beginning, when everyone thought it was crazy, I was thinking of The Chronicles of Riddick as a trilogy. That would start with the movie you saw, and Pitch Black would act as a prequel that introduced you to the character. So in simple terms, in Chronicles 2 we venture to the Underverse. We knew we could get away with a PG-13 on the first one, but once you go to the Underverse it's rated R, because it's a place where war is the norm and there is constant, constant battling. Then on Chronicles 3 we will see Riddick return to Furia, to deal with the homeland.
I am definitely a person of color.
Well, I've worked out for years. For a long time it was my only sense of gratification.
I was a bouncer for nine years, it was all I knew how to do, and my training was not to talk loosely...That's still my thought process: Shut your mouth, watch your back and keep working till your ass falls off.
You live these three months in this reality, in this dark reality. You don't want to do those films every year because they're taxing. I started smoking a lot of cigarettes.
You know when something feels so good but you're afraid to feel good about it? So you kinda hold back? Everyone says, Congratulations, you must be so happy. And you say something stupid like, 'I'm just doing what little I can with what little I have.'
You break her heart, I'll break your neck.
We all deal with being unfairly judged.
The whole year I was in LA I got into telemarketing and learned how to make money. Five years later that skill helped me make my first film.
The video game culture was an important thing to keep alive in the film because we're in a new era right now. The idea that kids can play video games like Grand Theft Auto or any video game is amazing. The video games are one step before a whole other virtual universe.
