American actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson blamed his Fast and Furious co-star Diesel's fault in manipulation. Johnson said this in an interview with CNN.
Previously, the performer of the role of Dominic Toretto Diesel publicly called the “ Rock '' return to the cinema franchise. Johnson, however, refused to star in Fast and Furious 10. He did not like the fact that Diesel, writing in social networks an appeal to a colleague with a call to return to the franchise, mentioned in the post his children and the death of Paul Walker. 'Rock' noted that in this way a colleague in Fast and Furious tried to manipulate him.
“I was very surprised by Vin’s recent post. Last June, when Vin and I contacted other than social media, I told him directly and privately that I would not be returning to the franchise. I was firm but cordial in my words and said that I will always support the actors and will always root for the success of the franchise, but there is no chance of my return, '' Johnson said.
In November 2021, Vin Diesel asked Dwayne on social media for the Rock Johnson to return to the Fast and the Furious franchise for filming in new parts. In his address, Diesel called his colleague “ little brother '' and admitted that for his children, he will forever remain “ Uncle Duane. ''
He emphasized that he had made a promise to his late friend, actor Paul Walker, in which he vowed to use all his strength to create the final part of “ Fast and the Furious. '' Johnson responded to this in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter: “I laughed and laughed hard. I think everyone laughed at that. ''
