While the on-set feud between "Fast & Furious" stars Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel has reportedly been resolved, Johnson appears to have thrown shade at his co-star one final time in a recent Instagram post. The Rock was sure to shout-out director F. Gary Gray for his "vision and execution", specific cast members including "handsome sumbitch" Scott Eastwood and Natalie Emmanuel, and the "hard-working" crew.
The exclusion of Vin Diesel on The Rock's latest Instagram post might serve as confirmation to this news. "Your kind words meant a lot to me last night - thank you!" he said.
Turns out one of those ways was landing Dwayne Johnson in the fan-favorite role of Agent Luke Hobbs, which Diesel reveals was originally written for...Tommy Lee Jones.
Diesel said that the reason he brought Johnson into the Fast franchise, starting with Fast 5, was because of fans demands to see them on screen together.
"My female co-stars are always wonderful, and I love 'em".
"Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't". In the end, we all rallied, as great teams do, kicked a$$ and will deliver an awesome movie to the world.
The 49-year-old actor, who is renowned for his action packed sequences and daredevil stunts in movies, was all praise for the "Fast & Furious" co-star and took Facebook to express his feelings.
But The Rock did blast a male co-star for acting like an unprofessional "candy ass" while filming.
However, it's interesting to see how Diesel and Johnson are essentially circling one another in the press over this beef. Diesel is also a producer of the films.
19, Johnson announced via Instagram that he had wrapped production on "Fast 8", the next installment in the long-running "Fast & Furious" film franchise. The ones that don't are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway.
