According to a press release sent out by the studio, Vin Diesel has pulled out of the Australian leg of the â€œFast & Furiousâ€ promo tour due to a scheduling spar with his latest project.
Diesel was expected to arrive in the country next week, alongside co-star Paul Walker, to spruik out the petrolhead tentpoler. Walker will still attend.
The actor, who reprises his role as Dominic Torreto in the Justin Lin-directed actioner, has had to fly to Vancouver for his latest film role.
Diesel was expected to film a cameo as in director Chris Weitzâ€™s â€œThe Twilight Sagaâ€™s New Moonâ€ in June, but â€œthe filming dates have been bought forwardâ€ according to studio representative, Jackie DiNorscio. â€œThough Mr Diesel is only required on set for three days, the filming dates directly clash with the Melbourne Premiere and Junket. Unfortunately he can no longer attendâ€.
As previously reported back in January, Diesel will appear as the ancient Italian vampire, Lestat, father of Caius, in the â€œTwilightâ€ sequel. The actor agreed to do the part for filmmaker friend Weitz, who heâ€™s working with on the upcoming â€œHannibal the Conquerorâ€.
