Peter Segal (Get Smart) is reportedly in talks to direct Vin Diesel (The Fast and the Furious) in the action film, The Machine for MGM.  At the moment, Segal is currently attached to Warner Bros. pictures Grudge Match and the adaptation of the manga, Bleach, so this more than likely won’t be his next feature.  Segal is producing Bleach and may end up directing the picture, while he is attached to direct the Grudge Match, about a boxing rematch between aging fighters. Diesel, meanwhile, is currently in post-production on The Untitled Chronicles of Riddick Sequel, which we can expect to see sometime early next year.  Hit the jump for more information on his involvement in The Machine, as well as the picture’s plot synopsis.

After Jason Statham turned down a role in The Fast and the Furious 6, could the opportunity have fallen to fellow Brit, Luke Evans?  Recent reports suggest that Evans, who is currently filming for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit movies, has been tapped as the villain in the sixth installment of The Fast and the Furious franchise.  The role in Justin Lin’s follow up to the wildly successful Fast Five was previously turned down by Statham when he was surprisingly unable to reach a deal with Universal.  It’s also possible that Rihanna is still circling a villainous role in some capacity, though nothing has been clarified on that front.  It has been confirmed, however, that Michelle Rodriguez will be returning for the sixth run.  Hit the jump to sort out what else we know.
