It has been nearly 15 years since Rob Cohen helmed the surprise international hit The Fast and the Furious, about a group of close-knit, law-flouting street racers. While Cohen didn’t direct the subsequent sequels, he has remained in contact with the main cast, including directing Fast patriarch Vin Diesel in the 2002 extreme-sports action flick XXX. More recently, Cohen directed Jennifer Lopez in the successful low-budget thriller The Boy Next Door, still in theaters, and has other projects in the pipeline.
