Dwayne Johnson will never return to Fast franchise
Do you remember the much-discussed altercation between Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson a few years ago?
Johnson discusses his public dispute with the action actor and the circumstances surrounding their altercation on the set of The Fate of the Furious in 2016 in a new interview with Rolling Stone.
When Johnson posted a message on his Instagram in August 2016 to express his concerns with filming, that was the first indication that problems was brewing. Johnson congratulated his dedicated crew and female co-stars, but he also criticized some of his male co-stars, stating, “Some men behave in a manly and real professional manner, while others don’t. The people that don’t are too chickenshit to do action anyway. sweet asses.” Everyone immediately realized that Diesel was the co-worker receiving criticism.
Nearly two years later, Johnson is speaking with Rolling Stone about how the actor’s relationship deteriorated to the point where they were unable to work together on set or throughout filming. Diesel explained why he and his former “Fast & Furious” franchise co-star had a falling out in an interview with Men’s Health, something Johnson had previously discussed in the media in 2018.Diesel claimed that in his capacity as the franchise’s producer, he had to be firm with Johnson, who portrayed Luke Hobbs.
Diesel admitted to Men’s Health that playing the Hobbs role was difficult. “At the time, I used a lot of tough love to help move that performance in the right direction. Hobbs hits you like a ton of bricks as a producer when you say, “Okay, we’re going to take Dwayne Johnson, who is connected with wrestling, and we’re going to push this cinematic world, audiences, to regard his character as someone that they don’t know.”
In the interview, he claims, “Vin and I had a few chats, including one crucial face-to-face in my trailer.” We have fundamentally different mindsets about how we approach making movies and collaborating, I realized.
Diesel continued, “That look is something I’m proud of.”
Dwayne Johnson has no plans to return
In order to “fulfill my promise to Pablo [Paul Walker],” “Fast & Furious” co-star Vin Diesel has publicly pleaded with Dwayne Johnson to reprise his role as Luke Hobbs.
Dwayne Johnson starred in five “F&F” movies, beginning with “Fast Five” in 2011 and concluding with the spinoff “Hobbs & Shaw” in 2019. On Sunday, Diesel shared a photo of him and Johnson together in “The Fate of the Furious,” one of the flicks. Johnson declared that he wouldn’t return for “Fast 10,” which is presently slated for release in April 2023, after that movie.
But now, Diesel invites Johnson to reconsider and come back for what he claims would be the final “F&F” episode in a post he addresses to “little brother Dwayne.”
Dwayne Johnson posted on Instagram, “Some handle themselves like stand-up men and true professionals, while others don’t.” The people who don’t are too cowardly to take any action. sweet asses If you think I’m not acting in some of these sequences when you see this movie in April, you’re right. My blood is actually boiling in certain scenes.
Johnson concluded by saying, “I wish them luck on ‘Fast 9’.” And I wish them luck on Fast 10 and Fast 11 as well as the remaining “Fast & Furious” films they make without me.
Sadly, Dwayne Johnson seems to have already booked up his calendar for 2022. He will appear in the DC movies “Black Adam” and “League of Super Pets” next year, and his producing business Seven Bucks has a ton of projects in the works. One of them is a “Big Trouble in Little China” sequel, which Dwayne Johnson’s co-producer Hiram Garcia says they want to start shortly. When Universal will begin filming “Fast 10,” which will be helmed by Justin Lin, is still unknown.
