In the age of CGI, big budgets and unbelievable stunts, it's a great time to be an action star. And with three monster action franchises under his belt, it seems like Vin Diesel is making the most of the age of action. After starting out his career in the late 90s, Vin has steadily made himself the go-to man for anything involving fast cars and kick-ass fighting scenes, and at 49 he's showing absolutely no sign of slowing down!
Take a look at these six new & upcoming #VinDiesel movies and let me know in the comments which ones you're most excited about seeing:
6. The Fate of the Furious - April 14, 2017
Of course, the Vin Diesel movie we're all looking forward to in 2017 is The Fate of the Furious (a.k.a Fast 8) the latest installment in the juggernaut that is the Fast and Furious franchise. Vin once again returns to the driver's seat as Dom Toretto in a film that is sure have audiences on the edge of their seats.
Along with all the original cast returning, the eighth film (which is the first movie of a planned trilogy that will end the entire franchise) will also star newcomers Charlize Theron, Kristofer Hivju, Scott Eastwood and Dame Helen Mirren.

5. Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 — May 5, 2017
After the popularity of the first Guardians film, it was a given that the crew would be reuniting for a sequel! Vin's role in Guardians of the Galaxy film is one which, due to the nature of Groot, is reduced to three or four words; but it's heartfelt nevertheless.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will hit screens on May 5, 2017 and will see Vin Diesel, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper all reprise their roles as the Guardians, along with James Gunn returning to direct.
4. Avengers: Infinity War — May 4, 2018
Following on from reprising his role as Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Vin Diesel will once again voice the adorable Groot in the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War. Groot will no doubt be apart of the team that band together to take down the mammoth villain, Thanos. Depending on the events of Infinity War, Groot might also reappear in the follow up Avengers film, which is currently untitled but was formerly known as Avengers: Infinity War Part 2.

3. Fast and Furious 9 — April 19, 2019
After his foray to the bad side in Fate of the Furious we can only hope that the good side of Dom returns for Fast and the Furious 9. Vin Diesel is locked in to appear in this ninth installment of the franchise (of which he has appeared in eight of the films) alongside Tyrese Gibson (Roman). Lucas Black is also rumored to be reprising the role of Sean Boswell, a character first seen in Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and set to appear again in The Fate of the Furious.
2. Fast and Furious 10 — April 2, 2021
So far Vin Diesel is the only actor locked in to appear in what is apparently the final installment in the Fast and Furious franchise. With no plot details released, we can only expect there will be countless amazing stunts and incredible cars in this final film, and I know a lot of fans will be keeping their fingers crossed for a Dominic Toretto spin-off series.
1. Furia — Date TBA
In 2015, Vin revealed plans for a brand new installment in the Chronicles of Riddick franchise called Furia. Given Vin's tight schedule, production is yet to begin on the film, though he's estimated it should get underway in early 2017.
At the moment we're a little light on details of Furia, with Riddick screenwriter David Twohy keeping the plot tightly guarded, though we do know that it should be rated R. There are also plans in place for a TV spinoff titled Merc City. Take a look at the video below to hear Vin talk more about Furia:
