Fast and the Furious 15th anniversary re-release: Vin Diesel looks back on first 'Fast' film

Posted on

The Fast and the Furious is coming back to theaters. While production continues on the eighth film in the automotive action saga, Universal will celebrate the film that started it all with a 15th anniversary theatrical rerelease. The studio announced Wednesday that the original Fast will return theaters for a limited nationalwide run on June 22. You can buy tickets here.

Remembering the first film, the franchise’s longtime star-producer Vin Diesel released an exclusive statement to EW.

“Fifteen years ago my life changed forever. Dom was born… Little did I know back then what that really meant,” he said. “The brotherhood formed with Brian, the love personified in Letty and the sense of family initiated by Mia… It is surreal that this film has held up all the years and led to so much more. Proud of our Fast saga family. From studio to crew, thank you all.”
