When information about the quarrel between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson appeared on the Web in 2016, many viewers got the impression that the confrontation between the two Hollywood stars was just a clever PR stunt in the framework of the promotion of the eighth movie in the Fast and Furious franchise. However, new information from the Dream Factory makes it clear that very tense relations have indeed developed between the actors. Moreover, the conflict could make it impossible for viewers to see Johnson in Fast and Furious 9.|
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Dwayne admitted that due to disagreements between the actors, the creators of Fast and Furious 8 had to resort to the miracles of editing. “Vin and I never crossed paths on set,” Johnson said. -But we discussed the film outside of it several times. At some point, I finally realized that there are insurmountable disagreements between us on how we feel about filmmaking and cooperation. ”
The enmity between the actors could lead to the fact that the Scala abandon the participation in the creation of "Fast and the Furious 9" and focus on work on the spin-offs of the racing franchise. “At the moment, all my thoughts are connected with 'Hobbs and Shaw', - admitted the actor. "We want to make this film as high quality as possible."
Dwayne's departure from the mainstream series risks seriously hitting one of Universal's biggest hits. Johnson is rightfully one of the highest grossing actors in Hollywood. He joined the franchise in 2011 and immediately took it to the next level of income. If in 2009 "Fast and Furious 4" earned $ 363 million worldwide, then the first film with Johnson, "Fast and Furious 5", emptied the pockets of viewers for $ 628 million.
In November last year, a third party appeared in the conflict. Actor Tyreese Gibson didn't like that Universal's bosses had decided to prioritize the Hobbs and Shaw spin-offs. As a result, the performer of the role of Roman Pierce agreed to the point that he began to threaten to leave the franchise if the studio invited Johnson to the ninth "Fast and the Furious".
The world premiere of Hobbs and Shaw is scheduled for July 26, 2019, and Fast and Furious 9 will hit theaters on April 9, 2020.
