Your opinion has always mattered Diesel said in his lengthy note addressed to Walker elsewhere adding There isnt a day that goes by that I dont want to turn back time talk Pablo out of heading back to LA that thanksgiving weekend.
He went on to say Every Fast film I make must at the core always honour my brother Pablo Walker. In the real world I will always look after his family because in the real world he is family. Diesel then mentioned how he teared up when Walkers daughter Meadow Walker asked him to walk her down the aisle at her wedding.

When his mother asks me to bring Brian back to the screen… well I dont have to tell you how serious I take that.
