Exclusive: Vin Diesel: “I Don’t Know That Denzel Would Be Right for Fast”



Denzel Washington may have reportedly turned down a role in Fast & Furious 7, but Vin Diesel is A-ok with that.

HipHollywood sat down with the actor for his film Riddick, and couldn’t help but ask him about Washington supposedly snubbing the film.

Said Diesel, “I don’t know that Denzel would be right for Fast, quite frankly, he knows what he has to do.”

Shots fired? Maybe, maybe not. But Diesel did explain that there will be a new character introduced in the seventh installment, a pseudo father figure for his character Dom.

“There is a fatherlike figure that they want to introduce for this trilogy 7, 8, 9,” added Diesel. “I love that the studio is even thinking that far, it makes for better scripts.”

Well we hope so. Shooting for Fast & Furious 7 has already begun in Atlanta. In the meantime, you can catch Diesel in Riddick in theaters now.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
