Vin Diesel's mother wants him to direct 'Fast and Furious 8'

Vin Diesel's mother Delora Vincent wants the actor to direct the upcoming eighth installment of the "Fast and Furious" franchise.

Diesel took to Facebook to weigh in on the search for a director for "Furious 8", suggesting he is the right choice for the film.

Diesel told fans that his mother has told him: "Either you direct 8 yourself... or don't do it."

Diesel tagged her comments as "just a mother's love and belief" in him, but did add that she has witnessed what he'd done to "make these movies defy expectations and become increasingly successful, even when the studio thought I was crazy."

However, according to insiders, it looks unlikely that the star will get to take a seat on the director's chair anytime soon. An insider says the studio isn't happy with Diesel's post, or the notion that he might direct. "It is never going to happen," said the insider.

The search for a new director for the franchise has not been easy. James Wan, who helmed "Furious 7", chose not to return to take on the eighth installment, instead signing on to direct "Conjuring 2".

Universal Pictures had no comment on Diesel's post. Sources say the script, by Chris Morgan, is still being finished up, at which point producers will look toward officially hiring a director.
