Vin Diesel tells ComingSoon.net that he is directing a 20-minute prequel to “Fast and Furious”, the upcoming fourth installment in the Universal Pictures franchise.

In the Justin Lin-directed “Fast and Furious”, opening June 5, 2009, fugitive ex-con Dom Toretto (Diesel) reignites his feud with agent Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker). But as they are forced to confront a shared enemy, Dom and Brian must give in to an uncertain new trust if they hope to outmanuever him.

Diesel will star in the prequel along with Michelle Rodriguez reprising her role as Letty and Sung Kang returning as Han. Diesel didn’t say how the prequel would premiere; it could be on a DVD, online, TV, etc.
