Dwayne Johnson ‘ The Rock’ rejects Vin Diesel’s new Fast & Furious franchise proposal to feature again.
With over 15.6 million followers on Twitter and other social media networks, millions of dollars in the bank, a hit on Netflix with “Red Notice” co-starring Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds, the starring Dwayne Johnson alias “ The Rock” is riding high right now.
According to Dwayne Johnson ‘ The Rock’, his future run will not contain his role as Luke Hobbs in the Fast & Furious franchise.
Johnson replied to an Instagram post from co-star Vin Diesel suggesting his return. “I was very surprised by Vin’s recent post,” Johnson told CNN.
“This past June, when Vin and I connected not over social media, I told him straight – and privately – that I would not be returning to the franchise.
“I was firm yet friendly with my words and said that I would always be corroborative of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return.
Dwayne Johnson ‘ The Rock’ support
“I privately talked with my partners at Universal as well, all of whom were very supportive as they comprehend the problem, ” The Rock continued.
“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.
“Unfortunately, this public discussion 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,” Dwayne Johnson ‘ The Rock’ concluded.
