LAS VEGAS — Vin Diesel says he and the "Fast and Furious" crew do not want to let down the late Paul Walker with their new film.
The actor on Wednesday spoke to a packed auditorium at CinemaCon in Las Vegas about the eighth installment in the franchise, "The Fate of the Furious"— the first full film in the series made in the aftermath of Walker's death in 2013.
After Walker died, his two brothers helped complete action scenes in "Furious 7," which earned more than $1.5 billion globally when it was released in 2015.
Diesel said Walker had always envisioned eight movies in the series and he feels like Walker is looking down on them.
"The Fate of the Furious" hits theatres on April 14.
