‘Fast & Furious 10’: Dwayne Johnson calls Vin Diesel a manipulator and refuses to return to the franchise

After a small truce between the actors, the problems between the two have returned, and this time for the final farewell.

Trouble has returned to the friendship between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel once again. But this time it seems that they have come again to stay. After The Rock announced that left the saga and went his own way with the ‘spin-off’ Hobbs & Shaw, the exchange of comments in an unfriendly tone between the two actors was the order of the day. However, a few months ago, it seemed that everything had been solved and the calm returned to the family Fast & Furious. But again, this peace has been broken for this reason.

The saga Fast & Furious He will return to the big screen once again with his tenth installment to say goodbye to his fans. Although the details of the plot are still unknown, it is clear that this film will be a worldwide event in which millions of viewers await with great enthusiasm to discover how this franchise closes. For this, all those who have been part of the saga at some point in time, including Dwayne Johnson, cannot be absent.


Due to the latest events that emerged in the friendship of La Roca and Diesel, this return seemed completely impossible, however, the new terms on which their friendship was rebuilt seemed to bear fruit. So much so that in November Diesel shared some warm comments about his former co-star on his social networks:

My little brother Dwayne … The time has come. The world is waiting for the end in Fast 10. As you know, my kids refer to you as Uncle Dwayne in my house. There’s no holiday where you and them don’t exchange messages … But the time has come. The family awaits you

But not only that, the actor also made reference to the late Paul Walker, whom he affectionately calls Pablo. “I already told you years ago that I would keep my promise to Pablo. I swore that we would come to do the best “Fast” on 10, which will be the end! (…) But you have to come, don’t leave the franchise incomplete, you have a very important role to play. Hobbs cannot be played by anyone else. I hope that rise to the occasion and fulfill your destiny“.


These words, far from being a gesture that Johnson would take as something touching and friendly, he took it as an attack of manipulation, and this has been confirmed in an interview with CNN: “The recent publication of Vin was an example of his manipulation. I did not like that he mentioned his children in the post, as well as the death of Paul Walker. Leave them out of this. “

The director of ‘Fast and Furious 9’ points out that there are many ways to continue the franchise after the end

The actor confirmed in the interview that he had decided not to return to the franchise in any way, always from the respect and love he has for his co-stars. “I told [a Diesel] directly that I would not return to the franchise. I was firm but cordial with my words and said that I would always support the cast and always encourage the success of the franchise, but that there was no chance that he would return. We had talked about this months ago and came to a clear understanding.“.

It seems that there will be no end or farewell that manages to reconcile La Roca with the saga or with its protagonist. We will have to wait for the development of Fast & Furious 10 to find out if some miracle can finally emerge and see the actor return as Agent Hobbs.
