What’s one thing stronger than household? Franchise growth opportunities!
For the past few weeks, Tyrese Gibson has been evading Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson NOT to go forward with a solo Hobbs spinoff movie as it would push back the handout of Fast& Furious 9 — and, even more importantly, Gibson’s paycheck.
After The Rock officially ratified on for the spinoff with Jason Statham — effectively postponing Fast 9 from April 19, 2019 to an April 10, 2020 freeing — Gibson attacked his costar on Instagram for what he claimed was hijacking the dealership while kicking the #FastFam to the curbing.
Of course, it didn’t take long for other members of the gang to chime in on the beef. But the reply provided by the one cast member in particular has caught us by surprise!
Diesel addressed the dispute on Instagram over the weekend and made quite clear he was backing with The Rock, despite their well documented PR stunt social media quarrel last year.
Captioning a snap of himself and Johnson from Fast 5, the 50 -year-old protected the Hobbs spinoff , mentioning “its been” the excellent lane to hold devotees over while Universal does some much needed maintenance on the rest of the Fast franchise.
Brotherhood … and all it’s intricacies. This panorama was filmed in Puerto Rico, I can remember it like it was yesterday. Such a beautiful island, the person or persons used to be so warm and welcome. I transformed 43 that summertime … and my lad Vincent was born. A wife identified Jan Kelly responded to a question I had asked on Facebook, ‘who they would like to see me work with? ‘ She said would love to see me work with Dwayne … I listened to her request and he became Hobbs. I know there has been a lot of surmise to the reasons why the Fast 9 handout year was propagandized … but it would be unfair to say it is anyone’s defect. As we planned the course to expand the Fast& Furious universe, one must be mindful to take stock of the roads we took to get here. The pillars of authenticity, family and most importantly, our loyal fan’s view has been instrumental in procuring success. However, like any vehicle that has run around the globe 8 ages, the franchise would require upkeep. My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has awarded me the time to do simply that. We have some very exciting information to share soon … bide carolled. Yours truly, Dom #FamilyAlwaysA upright said that he shared Vin Diesel (@ vindiesel) on Oct 6, 2017 at 8: 15 pm PDT
On Monday, The Rock also addressed the controversy head on in — what else? — an Instagram caption, said the Hobbs movie would “create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool.”
The WWE star promised to use his spinoff platform for the very best of the supporters by creating “new people that followers will ultimately love to have fun with in numerous periods and platforms.” He shared 😛 TAGEND
