Could the Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel feud finally cool off?
As the “Fast and Furious” spin-off “Hobbs and Shaw” passes the three-quarters of a billion mark at the global box-office, and as the ninth film in the main series is nearly finished wrapping filming, Johnson has posted a new video teasing a potential return to the main series of the franchise.
Johnson offered a video post thanking fans for the success of “Hobbs & Shaw” and then goes on to thank Vin Diesel who recently offered a congratulatory post released to Johnson’s wedding. The “Ballers” star says:
“Lastly, but not least, I want to thank brother Vin [Diesel] for your support of Hobbs & Shaw. I saw your post and I appreciate it. … As you know, and what a wild ride this is and what a wild ride this has been, 10 years ago when you and I spoke, you invited me into the Fast and Furious family. I’m grateful for that invite. And as you know, my goal was always, all these years, to come into the Fast & Furious world and help elevate the franchise in any way that I possibly could. And of course, all roads lead to one thing. I’ll be seeing you soon, Toretto.”
Johnson previously explained their feud away as the pair having fundamentally different approaches to “moviemaking and collaborating” and it took a few discussions for him to reach an understanding. Both actors are noted for having large social media followings with frequent updates on their own projects for their fan bases.
A tenth film in the series is already being planned. “Fast and Furious 9” is scheduled for release May 22nd 2020.
