Fast 8 movie will hit the big screen in 2017. It’s the first time fans won’t see Paul Walker’s character in the movie after his tragic death in 2013. Earlier this year, Vin Diesel teased a fan-made poster yet he seems still emotional over Walker’s absence. Hence, there might not be another sequel. But is this the real reason why there might not be a Fast 9?
Recently, reports arose that cast members might not be in good terms after all. This was after Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed about a “candy as*” male co-star on his Instagram rant. It seems he’s pointing his finger at Vin Diesel and according to sources, their feud has been ongoing for months.
On Instagram, Johnson posted a teaser from Fast 8 movie. But instead of teasing about his character or what fans should expect from the film, his caption talked about a personal rant.
First, he praised how he’s thankful to be part of the movie franchise as well as working with his female co-stars. But when it comes to his male co-stars, The Rock is not happy about them. He didn’t mention a specific actor yet he described him or them as “candy as*” and “too chicken sh*t”. He warned that even in some scenes, he was not acting anymore – his blood was “legit boiling”.
Check out The Rock’s teaser and revelation about Fast 8 movie and cast.
This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. 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. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part😉. Final week on FAST 8 and I'll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses
An exclusive source told People Magazine that there’s an ongoing feud between The Rock and Vin Diesel. Although Johnson first dished about the drama on set, the site noted that problems began due to The Rock’s behavior.
“Vin has been having problems with The Rock because The Rock keep showing up late for production. Sometimes he doesn’t show up at all and he’s delaying the production,” the source revealed. Diesel remains mum on the issue. Other reports noted that this might just be another publicity stunt.
Despite speculations, Johnson refused to reveal whom he was talking about. He decided to clarify what he meant by his rant. The Rock mentioned how conflict “can be a good thing”.
My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There's no greatness ever achieved alone.. it's always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered. HUGE THANK YOU to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team – as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @samoanstuntman. Thank you team for the willingness to "die hard" and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie. #MyStuntBrothers #Loco4Life You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team – that's a family – there's gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it. At the end of the day me and #F8 co-stars all agree on the most important thing: Delivering an incredible movie to the world. #Fast8 #IcemanCometh #FamilyGrowth
