To that end, Universal has put out feelers to agents for experienced action directors (including Non-Stop's Jaume Collet-Serra, who wasn't available) and relative newcomers. Sources say Diesel must be consulted on director choices but does not have veto power over studio picks. (Some at Universal fear that Diesel will, at some point, want to direct one of the films himself. The ambition seems to be there: In 2009, Diesel wrote and directed an 18-minute short, Los Bandoleros, that was intended to set up his return in the fourth Fast film.) But another source says Diesel wouldn't want to expose himself to such scrutiny on a high-profile extravaganza.
A short written, directed and starring Diesel, "Los Bandoleros" provided the backstory leading up to the oil truck heist at the start of the "Fast & Furious." Light on action, heavy on romance, a feature length version of "Los Bandoleros" would be 90 percent Dom and Letty driving to the beach and being super adorable, and you know what? We're totally OK with that.
