Vin Diesel’s salary saw a 10x jump from first Fast & Furious film

Fast X, Vin Diesel’s most recent film, has grossed more than $650 million worldwide and is still in theaters. According to rumors, the action star received a sizable compensation, with Jason Momoa’s price somewhat lower than his.

Let’s look at Vin’s earnings for his first Fast movie while talking about his compensation for the most recent release.

Vin is without a doubt one of the highest-paid Hollywood actors, and his pay is frequently in contention. He is among the top ten most expensive Hollywood actors, with Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith, and Tom Cruise apparently close at the top.

Vin is one of the biggest stars, and his most recent Fast movie has only served to highlight him.

Vin Diesel received a Fast X pay of $20 million, which is significantly more than that of his co-stars, according to an Animated Times report.

It’s interesting to note that it’s ten times more than Vin earned from his first Fast movie, The Fast And The Furious. Vin reportedly earned $2 million for the 2001 film.

Returning to the Fast X cast, Jason Momoa allegedly demanded $5 million for the movie. According to reports, Brie Larson receives $1 million in fees while John Cena gets paid $2 million annually.

Meanwhile, Vin Diesel recently said that the ‘Fast & Furious franchise spinoffs, including a female-led installment, are already in the works.

“I started developing the female spinoff… in 2017 with other spinoffs, and the sooner I deliver the finale, the sooner I can launch all the spinoffs,” he said, reports Variety.

In other news, the Dominic Toretto fame has also been an active part of the MCU with his voice role as the Groot and as the titular lead in The Chronicles of Riddick franchise.

But while the former brought in enormous sums of money, the latter nearly cost him his home.

Three feature films, Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick, and Riddick, as well as an animated short, video games, and comics, make up the Chronicles of Riddick franchise.

While the franchise continued to grow, it should be noted that neither its commercial nor critical success was ever truly significant.

In 2013, at the release of the third movie in the series, Vin Diesel admitted to The Hollywood Reporter that he almost lost his home during the production.

There were numerous challenges during the film’s production because Riddick lacked funds from any major studio. One of the main reasons Diesel said he wanted to finish the movie was because of his house.

“I had to leverage my house. If we didn’t finish the film, I would be homeless.”

In order to address the budget concerns, the crew was compelled to complete the film in 47 days, according to writer and director David Twohy.

The sequel’s production as the second film raises the question of why it was done at all, given that the first film, which had the biggest box office earnings in the series, was a failure.

However, the Fast X actor claims that a fan’s plea for an R-rated installment of the franchise inspired him to make it happen.

“Something about that comment made me think, bless their heart, and if I can do anything with this newfound success if I could do anything at all, I could deliver on that wish. It’s a strange and unique sense of gratification, and it’s not like any film I’ve done in the last 10 years.”
