The Rock and Vin Diesel’s issues on the set of Fast & Furious called for them to shoot their takes without each other around. This is why they’re not in the same shots in that movie, because the heat was legit. The Rock departed from the Fast Franchise, and the thought was that he wouldn’t be back. It seems you can never say never.
The Wrap reports that The Rock is a part of the Fast X movie, even though he said he was done. The Rock won’t have a huge part in the movie, but he will appear in the final seconds of the film.
Surprise! Dwayne Johnson has returned to the “Fast and Furious” franchise, making an appearance in the post-credits sequence for the upcoming “Fast X,” out next Friday (May 19), TheWrap has exclusively learned.
In 2021, The Rock took to Instagram where he seemingly dragged Vin Diesel. This was followed by Vin posting his own response.
A month after Diesel’s social media appeal, Johnson told CNN: “I told [Diesel] directly 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. 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.”
The two had a private conversation, that some say got a bit heated, and the two decided to go their separate ways. It seems that The Rock was able to work something out.
We will have to see if The Rock and the Fast Franchise will continue, with Fast 11 being the final movie in the franchise. After all, some Fast & Furious cast members were a bit upset that Hobbs & Shaw pushed back production of a larger ensemble film.
