Fast and Furious franchise is one of the most popular movie franchises in the world. Rumor has it that spinoff will focus on Johnson’s character Luke Hobbs, and it is going to have a large impact on Fast 9, a movie that is scheduled for April 19, 2019. The drama between Tyrese Gibson and Dwayne Johnson emerged as the two actors apparently have issues with one another and Tyrese posted an interesting comment on Johnson’s Instagram which he later deleted.
“If you move forward with that #Hobbs Movie you will have purposely ignored the heart to heart moment we had in my sprinter,” Gibson wrote. “I don’t wanna hear from you until you remember what we talked about. I’m on your timeline cause you’re not responding to my text messages – #FastFamily is just that a family…….. We don’t fly solo.”
However, his efforts to reach Dwayne didn’t end there. Gibson, also known as Roman Pearce in the Fast and Furious universe posted another comment on Tuesday and deleted it once again.
“I have never and will never have a problem with this major movie star he’s my brother,” wrote Gibson. “I’m simply trying to reach him cause he won’t call me back about this solo #HobbsMovie I want you to shoot it just not right now cause the #Fast9 release date has already been announced and we can’t let our loyal fans #FastFamily or our loyal fast and furious FANS down on any level from pushing the date…….. Didn’t you see how HUGE #Fast8 was? It’s because we announced and KEPT our release date bro.”
He also teased Johnson when he went public with the private issues: “I never ever go public with private family issues. We do this on behalf of the families, the cast, the crew member who have been down and loyal to us for 15 years…… Everyone matters…. When we shoot we all eat, we we show up as a FAMILY display our love, our funny stuff, our story lines and HEARTS in every frame…… Me and the cast laugh because it seems like #Fast is like a HOLIDAY at this point….. You [can’t] push the release date of a holiday bro.”
Gibson concluded, “This is not a #Rant I’m no Rock #Hater and I don’t want this #Life I love my own… I’m doing this for the #FastFamily I’m loyal and I apologize for being loyal but dammit I am.”
Tyrese said that once he hears from Dwayne Johnson, he is going to delete every post and since they are deleted, it could be that Johnson finally answered. However, there is still one picture on Gibson’s Instagram feed which needs to be removed. It shows him and Johnson and it is captioned: “I don’t do email bruh. You got my cell same San Diego # hit me.”
Fast and Furious is on a good way to become the billion-dollar franchise, and so far, it has had its fair share of drama. To be honest, that was kind of expected because it is such a large project with the actors who are Hollywood superstars, so collisions can be considered to be natural. We have witnessed Dwayne Johnson talking harshly about the crew of Fast and Furious and all indications are that he called out Vin Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto in the series. The feud between the two actors was in the media, but everything appeared to be sorted out.
Another drama worth mentioning involved Michelle Rodriguez and her dissatisfaction with female roles in the films and she threatened to leave if they didn’t do something about it. However, she has stayed for Fast 8, and hopefully, she will be in Fast 9 as well.
