Previously, Dwayne Johnson said that he was not happy with how Vin Diesel is “manipulating” social media to bring back Dwayne Johnson into Fast and Furious 10, Johnson previously played Luke Hobbs in the franchise.
This started a feud between the two stars and Vin Diesel even posted a post on Instagram and asked Johnson to return in the next film.
Johnson said during an interview with CNN:
“I was very surprised by Vin’s recent post,”
“This past June, when Vin and I actually connected not over social media, I told him directly — and privately — that I would not be returning to the franchise. I was firm yet cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return. I privately spoke with my partners at Universal as well, all of whom were very supportive as they understand the problem.
“Vin’s recent public post was an example of his manipulation,” Johnson continued. “I didn’t like that he brought up his children in the post, as well as Paul Walker’s death. Leave them out of it. We had spoken months ago about this and came to a clear understanding.
“My goal all along was to end my amazing journey with this incredible Fast & Furious franchise with gratitude and grace,” he added. “It’s unfortunate that this public dialogue has muddied the waters. Regardless, I’m confident in the Fast universe and its ability to consistently deliver for the audience, and I truly wish my former co-stars and crew members the best of luck and success in the next chapter.”
Looks like we won’t be seeing Dwayne Johnson in Fast and Furious 10 and other franchises of the films in the future. Fast and Furious story is getting old and its always the same old ****.
