The Fast & the Furious film series actors Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson were said to be in a constant clash while filming its latest sequel Fast 8. Although the drama now seems to have subsided as the shooting had wrapped up, fans wonder if it may have affected the overall quality of the movie.
The movie is expected to be widely received and as good or better than Furious 7, as producer Neal H. Moritz promised it to have something enticing for all of us.
Although it has lost Paul Walker following the actor’s death, Fast 8 is said to have new personalities coming in, such as Kurt Russell, UFC’s Ronda Rousey and Joanna Jędrzejczyk.
According to a report by People, Dwayne Johnson praised his female co-stars for doing an “amazing” job in a social media post. He also took the time lambast male counterparts; although rumors circulate that it was mainly directed to Vin Diesel.
“My male co-stars, however, are a different story,” Dwayne Johnson said.
“Some conduct themselves as the stand-up men and true professionals, while others don’t,” Johnson continued. “The ones that don’t are too chickens— to do anything about it anyway. Candy @ss*s.”
Could this mean their performance may have been affected by the shooting? It certainly seems that way as “The Rock” added:
“When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling — you’re right.”
We can only hope the acting turns out as real as it gets, and it looks like we got a real heated exchange in the guise of a movie coming. We wonder how the rest of the actors might have dealt with all this drama.
Vin Diesel was rumored to be unprofessional, hard to deal with and disrespectful to the staffs. He was said to have spent hours in his studio doing nothing for hours.
However, it’s rumored that Vin Diesel had only been pushed to his limit due to Dwayne Johnson’s tardiness, that he was always late onset, and it was The Rock who had initially caused the feud to brew.
Tyrese Gibson came to the rescue to defend Johnson, according to a report by HOF Mag where he said, “DJ happens to be one of the most humble, down to earth and professional people I have ever worked with.”
Whatever may have transpired between the actors shall remain in the past as both of them are reported to have dealt with their differences.
“And like with any team – that’s a family – there’s gonna be conflict. The family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when it’s followed by great resolution.” Dwayne Johnson said.
Fast 8 will be released on April 14.
