Internal turmoil, ‘Fast & Furious’ actors hate each other

‘Fast & Furious’ is famous for its family spirit, but within the crew of this film, there have been many conflicts and disagreements that are difficult to connect.

The Rock and Tyrese Gibson

Fast 8 released in 2017 had lower sales than the previous two, not to the extent of “catastrophic” but enough to make the producer pause the sequel and make room for the Hobbs & Shaw spinoff, expanding the film universe.

All of the Fast and Furious gossip and drama.

This is also the reason why some cast members are annoyed with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. They are not happy to have more side stories.

The person who especially “hates” The Rock is Tyrese Gibson – the actor who plays the humorous Roman Pearce. In 2017, Gibson publicly criticized The Rock on Instagram. He considers the former wrestler to be a selfish person, pushing the brand into a worse state. The black actor’s words showed that he was in a state of extreme excitement: “Side story? The monkey side story! I’m sorry to say that if Dewayne was in Fast 9, it wouldn’t be anymore. Roman Peirce too. Close your eyes and think. You’re just a clown.” This status line was later removed by Gibson.

The actor also sarcastically said Hobbs & Shaw would turn into a bomb like Baywatch (a movie by The Rock and Zac Efron). Attached to the above message is an article about Hobbs & Shaw’s low US opening in the Fast & Furious franchise since Tokyo Drift (2006). Like always, Gibson quickly deleted the message, but many viewers were able to take pictures.

In a recent interview, The Rock responded to Tyrese Gibson’s years of criticism: “It’s disappointing because I’ve been friends with Tyrese for so long. I see this war of words as one-sided. He commented on social media many times, but I don’t think there is a need for a conversation between the two sides.”

The Rock and Vin Diesel

In 2016, when making Fast 8, The Rock posted on Instagram alluding to Vin Diesel’s lack of responsibility on set. Then, when posting thanks to the entire Fast family, The Rock listed the names of everyone in the crew, except Vin Diesel.

Earlier this year, The Rock confirmed it would not be participating in Fast 9, “but who knows what Fast 10 will be”. “The story between Hobbs and Dom is not over yet. They still haven’t settled their debt together,” The Rock stammered when asked about the future with Fast & Furious. In Fast 8, The Rock and Vin Diesel’s characters have many important scenes, but they never appear in the same frame. Even the only scene where the two talk in the movie does not stand together.

Michelle Rodriguez hits back at the scriptwriter

Han Lue is a very popular character in Fast & Furious. This character was finished off by Deckard Shaw in Tokyo Drift.

This made the fans extremely angry. For 2 years now, they have demanded justice by spreading the hashtag #JusticeforHan (justice for Han). Writer of the series Chris Morgan recently spoke to reassure the audience, they are building a compelling storyline and promise to make the audience satisfied.

A few days later, Michelle Rodriguez (as Letty) suddenly hit back at Morgan on Twitter. “I’ve been in the movie since before Chris Morgan came along and he has nothing to do with the next direction of the franchise,” she wrote. Below the status line, Rodriguez attached an interview Chris Morgan in Entertainment Weekly about “justice for Han”.

Michelle Rodriguez threatens to quit

Responding to the scriptwriter is not the only thing the actress does in the process of participating in Fast & Furious. Before that, she insisted that she would refuse to participate in Fast 9 if the producer still underestimated women.

“Fast & Furious 8 will have a digital version from today. I hope they will take care of the female actors in the next installment. If not, I will say goodbye,” Rodriguez wrote on Instagram.

“There is not a single feminist message to the audience. This has never stopped ringing in my head, especially in the all-male environment in which I am working,” the actress added.

In addition to Michelle Rodriguez, other celebrities also featured in Fast & Furious including Gal Gadot, Elsa Pataky, Gina Carano, Charlize Theron… and most recently Vanessa Kirby. However, compared to men, the number of women is completely inferior.

The sequel Fast & Furious 9 will be released on May 22, 2020. Initially, the film was scheduled to hit theaters on April 10, but was delayed to avoid clashing with the blockbuster Bond 25 also belonging to Universal, which was released on April 8, 2020.
