• The Rock Accuses Fast & Furious Co-Star Of Being “Manipulative”
During a interview on CNN, WWF Legend The Rock revealed that he does not want to return to the Fast & Furious franchise to continue playing his role as Luke Hobbs.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is currently the #1 actor in all of Hollywood, and he was reacting to Vin Diesel’s recent plea.
Here’s what Vin Diesel (Dominic Toretto in the movie franchise) wrote on Instagram in November 2021:
“My little brother Dwayne…the time has come. The world awaits the finale of Fast 10. As you know, my children refer to you as Uncle Dwayne in my house. There is not a holiday that goes by that they and you don’t send well wishes…but the time has come. Legacy awaits.
I told you years ago that I was going to fulfil my promise to Pablo (Paul Walker). I swore that we would reach and manifest the best Fast in the finale that is 10!
I say this out of love…but you must show up, do not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play. Hobbs can’t be played by no other. I hope that you rise to the occasion and fulfil your destiny.”
In above mentioned CNN interview, The Rock said he was “very surprised” to see him post that, after already telling Diesel in June 2021 that he wouldn’t return to do another Fast & Furious movie.
Johnson said that he also told Universal Pictures the same thing, “all of whom were very supportive as they understand the problem”.
He called Diesel’s post an “example of his manipulation” and added “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”.
The Rock felt like him and Diesel had a “clear understanding” of him leaving the franchise with “gratitude and grace” but that actual post by Diesel has “muddied the waters”.
Dwayne last appeared on the 2019 spin-off ‘Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw’, where he starred alongside Jason Statham and avoided working with Vin Diesel on the main parts of the franchise.
