Diesel & Walker Scrap Australia Visit
VIN DIESEL and PAUL WALKER have cancelled a week-long promotional visit to Australia due to illness.
The actors were due to arrive Down Under on Monday (06Apr09) to spend seven days promoting their new movie Fast And Furious, which debuted at the top of the U.S. box office on Sunday (05Apr09).
But both stars have pulled out of the trip after falling ill, and they will miss the film's premiere in Melbourne on Tuesday (07Apr09) as a result.
A representative for Universal Pictures International Australasia says, "We received confirmation today that Vin Diesel and Paul Walker have fallen ill and have to cancel future engagements as they are not well enough to travel. Regrettably they will not be touring Australia."
As WENN went to press there was no information about what ails the two stars.
