Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Vin Diesel, the lead actor and producer of the franchise, recently sent him an open invitation, but he has made it clear that he will not be returning to the Fast & Furious franchise.
Speaking to CNN, Johnson said he has his best wishes for the franchise and the people involved, but he will not return.
“I do not know [Diesel] Straight back I would come back to the franchise. I’m firm but still cordial with my words and I have always said that I will always support the cast and root for the success of the franchise, but I have no chance of coming back, ”he said.
He added, “Win’s recent public post is an example of his manipulation. I did not like him raising his children in the post, as well as the death of Paul Walker. Leave them out of it. We talked about this months ago and came to a clear understanding.
Johnson joined the franchise in 2011 with Fast Five as an agent for the Diplomatic Security Service. He starred in Fast & Furious 6 of 2013, Furious 7 of 2015 (2015) and The Fate of the Furious of 2017.
Fans had no idea what was going on behind the scenes. The feud erupted in 2016 when Dwayne Johnson wrote a now-deleted Instagram post.
The post reads, “Some behave like stand-up men and true professionals, while others do not. Those who don’t can do nothing about it anyway. Candy donkeys. When you see this movie next April, I’m not acting in some of these scenes and it feels like my blood is boiling irregularly – you’re right.
While Johnson refused to do F9, he starred in Spinoff Movie Hobbs & Shaw.
Earlier this year, Vin Diesel attributed the feud between them to the “tough love” he was giving Johnson to bring his best performance.
Johnson responded to comments in a Vanity Fair interview that he laughed when he read them.
