The Rock Says He's Done With The Fast And Furious Film Franchise

Dwayne Johnson has shocked Fast and Furious fans all over the world with news he's done with the film franchise.

Despite saying he and Vin Diesel had buried the hatchet and ended their long-running feud back in 2019, it looks like not everything can be mended.

Diesel recently said he was only giving The Rock some 'tough love' while shooting scenes together.

But Johnson has hit back at that claim.

He told SlashFilm: "I laughed and I laughed hard. I think everyone had a laugh at that. And I'll leave it at that. And that I've wished them well.

"I wish them well on Fast 9. And I wish them the best of luck on Fast 10 and Fast 11 and the rest of the Fast and Furious movies they do that will be without me."

The Rock insinuated that he could still appear in a Hobbes and Shaw sequel, however he won't be starring in the main event.


Vin Diesel said his 'tough love' approach was to get better performances out of his co-stars.

Speaking to Men's Health, the leading actor of the Fast and Furious saga explained how it was important for audiences to believe the character.

"My approach at the time was a lot of tough love to assist in getting that performance where it needed to be," the Hollywood star said.

"As a producer to say, 'Okay, we're going to take Dwayne Johnson, who's associated with wrestling, and we're going to force this cinematic world, audience members, to regard his character as someone that they don't know'."


It's a sad development for the franchise as many fans enjoyed The Rock's role in the saga.

Everyone was excited about the two stars putting their past fighting behind them two years ago.

Dwayne Johnson explained in an Instagram story that Vin helped with the Hobbes and Shaw movie promotion and The Rock was eternally grateful for the support.


That was the first time he had publicly said something positive about the star in ages.

He said in the video post: "I saw your post, and I appreciate it... What a wild ride this has been [since] 10 years ago, when you and I spoke and you invited me into the Fast & 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.

"We did it the right way, we did it the smart way, and again, brother, I appreciate your support. And, of course, all roads lead to one thing - I'll be seeing you soon, Toretto."
