[ # ] The Rock says he turned down Fast & Furious 10, months before Vin Deisel’s plea
December 30th, 2021 under The Rock, Vin Diesel

It is no secret that Vin Deisel and The Rock had a falling out when filming movies in The Fast & The Furious franchise.

Since DJ is so lovable, it would make sense that Diesel would want him in the final movie. So much so that the producer reached out to the star via social media. Therefore, making it look bad if DJ turned it down.

There was more to the story, and DJ gave the details to CNN. “I was very surprised by Vin’s recent post. This past June, when Vin and I actually connected not over social media, I told him directly – and privately – that I would not be returning to the franchise. I was firm yet cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return. I privately spoke with my partners at Universal as well, all of whom were very supportive as they understand the problem.

Vin’s recent public post was an example of his manipulation. I didn’t like that he brought up his children in the post, as well as Paul Walker’s death. Leave them out of it. We had spoken months ago about this and came to a clear understanding. My goal all along was to end my amazing journey with this incredible ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise with gratitude and grace. It’s unfortunate that this public dialogue has muddied the waters. Regardless, I’m confident in the ‘Fast’ universe and its ability to consistently deliver for the audience, and I truly wish my former co-stars and crew members the best of luck and success in the next chapter.”

So, it looks like we won’t be seeing DJ in the final movie even if Universal through truckloads of money at him. I can’t say I blame him. Can you?
