Paul Walker Upset About 'Fast & the Furious' Snub

Oct 04, 2005 | 8:50am EDT

Movie hunk Paul Walker has blasted the producers of the Fast & the Furious franchise for leaving him out of their plans for a second sequel--after he gave them the idea for the film.

The actor, who starred in Fast & the Furious and 2 Fast 2 Furious, will not reprise his Brian O'Conner in the second sequel; instead, rapper Bow Wow and Lucas Black will headline.

And Walker is far from happy--because he suggested a third film should be shot in Japan, which is where Fast & the Furious 3: Japan will be set.

He tells Web site, "I wanted to make another one, but my dream scenario was it was going to be [former co-stars] Vin [Diesel], Tyrese [Gibson] and I, and I spoke it over with the powers that be.

"They're like, 'Oh, f**k, we can't afford that.'"

"I was really disappointed when it didn't work out, but I really like Lucas Black... and I really think this third one could be the best one.

"The only thing that p**ses me off is before we did the sequel, I told them that we should shoot it in Japan... They looked at me like I was insane... Three years later that's exactly what it is. It's in Japan."
