In their last Fast and Furious film, Diesel and The Rock had a feud on set, which led to both stars’ public tension even after the release of the movie. When The Rock went on to create a spinoff of the film with Jason Statham, revealing that he had further ideas for a Hobbs & Shaw sequel, it sent fans speculating that the feud is not yet over. However, it seems that Diesel now wants The Rock to reprise his role as Hobbs for the tenth installment of the franchise.
In an Instagram post Diesel wrote, “My little brother Dwayne…the time has come. The world awaits the finale of Fast 10.” He adds that he hopes The Rock will consider returning for the finale and that he hopes to fulfill a promise, “I swore that we would reach and manifest the best Fast in the finale that is 10! I say this out of love…but you must show up, do not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play. Hobbs can’t be played by no other. I hope that you rise to the occasion and fulfill your destiny.”
The tension between Diesel and The Rock once was so unbearable that neither were able to film the same scene together during The Fate of the Furious. Later, the feud led to the Hobbs & Shaw film where Johnson told Vanity Fair, “I wanted to forgo drama. I thought that that was the best thing to do. For everybody.”
