Vin Diesel may have to temper his expectations for the grand finale of the Fast & Furious franchise.

Last month, the 56-year-old actor announced the “powerful” and exciting” end of the franchise with the upcoming 11th installment, Fast XI, for which he is reported to demand a $250 million budget.

But Diesel’s vision may be a little unrealistic, with reports that Universal executives are “begging” the star to scale back – especially after the last $340-million installment, Fast X, reportedly did not turn much of a profit.

A source told the National Enquirer via Radar Online, “universal execs are begging Vin to figure out how to make this movie substantially cheaper,” .

Apparently, Diesel “wants to make the biggest Fast movie ever and he’s taking his case to the fans with his social media updates.”

The source noted that this may backfire, adding, “It’s a clever strategy but he’s alienating the executives who made him richer.”

Born Mark Sinclair, the veteran actor announced the grand finale of the hit franchise last month.

Taking to his Instagram, he noted about the movie, “The grand finale is not just an ending; it’s a celebration of the incredible family we’ve built together. Hope to make you proud!”
