Dwayne Johnson says there’s “no chance” of him rejoining the Fast & Furious family, closing down all talk of his return to the franchise.
In an interview with CNN published Wednesday, the Dwayne Johnson was asked and gave a forthright and unambiguous answer.
Johnson said, "when Vin and I actually connected not over social media, I told him privately that I would not be returning to the franchise".
Johnson privately spoke with partners at Universal as well, all of whom were very supportive as they understand the problem.
Back in November, Diesel made a very public, and bizarre, plea to Johnson to return to the Fast fold in an Instagram post.
According to Dwayne, Vin’s recent public post was an example of his manipulation. He didn't like that he brought up his children in the post.
Dwayne's goal all along was to end his amazing journey with this incredible Fast & Furious franchise with gratitude and grace.
A true Hollywood clash of the titans, Johnson and Diesel fell out spectacularly, or rather their feud became public.
They have been so much controversy in the media regarding Johnson’s 2016 Instagram post in which he questioned Diesel’s professionalism.
The feud was renewed in June when Diesel told Men’s Health that his conflicts with Johnson were due to his tough love approach on set.
Diesel is attached for Fast & Furious 10 and 11, from filmmaker Justin Lin. Fast & Furious 10 is set for 19th May 2023 release date from Universal.
