Dwayne Johnson Pours Cold Water On A Possible Return To The Fast And Furious Franchise

2021 has been a spectacular for the man known as Dwayne Johnson, producing and starring in two hit movies, “Jungle Cruise” and “Red Notice”, enjoying immense sales growth with his Teremena Tequila and going on to become the most male American of Instagram with 285 million followers.

Enjoying the successes of the present, Dwayne Johnson has moved on from the past and that includes rejoining the Fast and Furious team for the franchise.

Co-star and colleague, Vin Diesel had earlier come out to express his desire to have his ‘brother’ rejoin the team for one last ride but Dwayne Johnson like was said earlier has moved on and does not see himself rejoining with the team for the Fast and Furious Franchise.

Asked about the comments of Vin Diesel in wanting him back for the franchise, this is what Dwayne Johnson had to say;

“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.”
