After confirming that he would not be returning in the ‘Fast’ franchise, The Rock called out Vin Diesel for exploiting Paul Walker’s death in his plea to get the ‘Jungle Cruse’ star back.
Hobbs is retired. Weeks after Diesel wine publicly pleaded for “my little brother” to come back for the tenth Fast Furious movie, Dwayne The Rock Johnson destroys any hope of reunion. “I was very surprised by Vin’s recent post,” said Dwayne, 49, in an interview with CNN. “Last June, when Vin and I didn’t connect through social media, I told him directly – and in private – that I wasn’t coming back to the franchise. I was firm but cordial with my words and said that I will always support the cast and always support the success of the franchise, but there was no way I would return.
However, The Rock’s cordiality ended when he spoke about how Vin, 54, was about to bring him back to the franchise. “Vin’s recent public message was an example of his manipulation,” said the Jungle cruise Star. “I did not like that he brings up his children at the post office, as well as Paul walkeris death. Leave them out. We talked about it months ago and we clearly got along. My goal from the start was to end my incredible journey with this incredible Fast Furious frankness with gratitude and grace. It is unfortunate that this public dialogue has muddied the waters. Anyway, I am confident in the Fast the universe and its ability to consistently deliver to the public, and I truly wish my former co-stars and crew the best of luck and success in the next chapter.
Vin made her public plea in an Instagram post on November 7. While sharing a photo of his characters and those of The Rock – Dominic Toretto and Luke Hobbs – clashing, Vin wrote, “My little brother Dwayne… the time has come. The world awaits the final of Fast 10. As you know my kids call you Uncle Dwayne in my house. There isn’t a holiday that goes by without them and you sending good wishes… but the time has come. The legacy awaits you. I told you years ago that I was going to keep my promise to Pablo [Paul Walker]. I swore we would reach and show the best Fast in the final which is 10! From there, Vin said The Rock “has to appear” and that he has a “very important role to play” in what will likely be the finale. Fast Furious movie.
Johnson joined the franchise in 2011 Fast Five and appeared in the following three films. He left the series with the 2019 spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw, which was a contentious issue between him and Fast co-featured Tyrese Gibson. However, long before the spin-off, the cracks in this “family” began to appear in 2016. After filming The fate of the furious, The Rock posted a message on Instagram calling out his “male co-stars”, saying that “some behave like standing men and real professionals, while others don’t.”
