The Fast & Furious 6 cast are now having an Asian tour to promote the movie. On May 13th, Vin Diesel along with other “Fast & Furious 6” stars, arrived in Manila Philippines, for the red-carpet screening of their movie to be held on Wednesday night at the SM Mall of Asia.
The actor was overwhelmed with the warm welcome of the Filipinos. He even walked on the street and rode the Jeepney (a public transport vehicle in Philiippines), took a picture and used as cover on his Facebook.
Even though it was Diesel’s first time to visit the country, he said that the country is really close to his heart. He told on one of his interviews that his sister-in-law is in fact a Filipina.
“My sister-in-law is a Filipino and so my niece and nephew are all… it’s been a part of our family for so long,”
Diesel revealed that he expects to do three more “Fast & Furious” movies after the sixth installment hits theaters. He even wanted to shoot in the Philippines for the next installments.
“Our tour here was so incredible that when I go back to LA and when we start doing, developing 7, 8, 9, I will tell Universal that I want to shoot in the Philippines. That is because of you,”
