Vin Diesel's Career On THE ROPES!

It€™s relatively little known, but before starring in low testosterone saturated action films, Vin Diesel was a writer/director whose first film short called Multi-Facial- an existential portrait of a young multi-racial actor- debuted at Cannes in 1994. Despite receiving little notice in France, a little under three years later, Mark Sinclair Vincent wrote starred and directed in his first feature, Strays, which wasn€™t tonally or thematically dissimilar from his short and met with little more success. Since then, of couse, the renamed €œVin Diesel€™s€ story is well known. And after a decade of moderately lucrative action and fantasy films somewhere from fair to awful, the muscle bound star is once again to turn creator with the web series The Ropes, according to Variety. Drawing on his own experiences in nightclub security, the eighteen part series will be a co-production between Diesel€™s own €œOne Race Films€ and Fox Digital. The series is expected to be low budget and €œauthentic€- reminiscent of his early forays into writing- and the, as yet unnamed, cast, is likely to comprise the actors friends and acquaintances as well lesser known up and coming actors. No further details have yet been released as Diesel is busy with post-production and promotional work for yet another episode in the Fast and Furious franchise, titled Fast Five, released through Universal on April 29th.
