LOS ANGELES, April 11 (UPI) -- U.S. actor Paul Walker says he and fellow "Fast and Furious" star Vin Diesel will return for a fifth installment in the street racing movie series.

Walker, who plays FBI agent Brian O'Conner in "Furious," said while the latest offering that hit the theaters last week was intended to wrap up the series, it ultimately offered an ending that opens territory for a fifth installment, E! Online reported Friday.

"This was supposed to be it," Walker said of "Furious," which earned $72.5 million last weekend. "There wasn't supposed to be the open-ended closing like there was. When I first read the screenplay, I was like, 'Man, look what they're doing.' But without question, with the way things opened up, Vin and I will be coming back, we're making a fifth one, and we're going to Brazil, that's it."

Walker appeared in "The Fast and the Furious" and "2 Fast 2 Furious" before sitting out the franchise's third installment, "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift."
