The Rock Reacts To Vin Diesel Saying He Wants Him To Return For Fast & Furious Finale



The Rock has previously spoken publicly about his feud with Fast and Furious co-star Vin Diesel as they had a feud a few years ago. The former WWE Champion did not have any scenes in The Fate of The Furious with Diesel and shared a social media post about some of his co-stars at the time. 

Earlier this year, The Rock told Vanity Fair he meant what he said. He simply said the two actors have different philosophies when it comes to making films.

Diesel took to Instagram in November to call for The Rock to return to the franchise. 

During an interview with CNN discussing his year, The Rock noted he would not be returning to the Fast & Furious franchise.

“I was very surprised by Vin’s recent post. This past June, when Vin and I actually connected not over social media, I told him directly – and privately – that I would not be returning to the franchise. I was firm yet cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return. I privately spoke with my partners at Universal as well, all of whom were very supportive as they understand the problem.

Vin’s recent public post was an example of his manipulation. 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. We had spoken months ago about this and came to a clear understanding. My goal all along was to end my amazing journey with this incredible ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise with gratitude and grace. It’s unfortunate that this public dialogue has muddied the waters. Regardless, I’m confident in the ‘Fast’ universe and its ability to consistently deliver for the audience, and I truly wish my former co-stars and crew members the best of luck and success in the next chapter.”
