The Rock will reprise his role as Luke Hobbs alongside Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto in a NINTH Fast and Furious outing.
That’s according to several sources working on The Fate of the Furous, or Fast 8, who revealed all in a series of leaks published by TMZ.
According to the unnamed sources, the pair have put their differences aside and are now “good” and “1000% in” for the next instalment.
There had been speculation that Hobbs could be spun-off into his own movie alongside Jason Statham but those plans may have now been put on the back burner.
It all started a few months back when The Rock took to social media to vent his frustrations as so-called “candy ass” co-stars – an apparent reference to Big Vin.
Now, TMZ has lifted the lid on what sparked the feud, as well as explaining how it was eventually resolved:
“…it was all over “real estate.” In movie language, real estate is all about how much an actor shines — who gets the best action scenes, who gets the hottest girl, who shows off their body more, and who gets the most face time.
“It became a big issue for Dwayne and Vin, but ultimately, Dwayne acknowledged it was Vin’s movie — he’s listed #1 on the call sheet.”
The sources were apparently keen to stress that the beef was not down to anything involving money.
Dwayne Johnson should count his lucky stars he’s still involved in the franchise anyway, given what happened to this star from the original movie, The Fast and the Furious, who essentially became the franchise’s answer to Jar-Jar Binks.
