Dwayne Johnson confirms his exit from the Fast and Furious franchise

The Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson has made it clear and confirmed that he will not be seen in the fast and furious films.

Johnson plays the role of Luke Hobbs in this franchise. Dwayne Johnson has played his first role as a Hobbs in 20011’s Fast Five, and later returned for Fast & Furious 6 (2013), Furious 7 (2015), and The Fate of the Furious (2017). He also starred in the franchise’s spin-off movie Hobbs & Shaw in 2019, co-starring Jason Statham, who reprised his role of Deckard Shaw from the long-running series.

Johnson has fallen out with lead star Diesel while the Fate of the Furious was under making in 2017 that resulted in the actor dropping out of the latest instalment, Fast and Furious 9.

Diesel has recently said that it was his, “tough love” act that enabled Johnson to perform better in the movies.

When Hollywood Reporter has asked Dwayne about Diesel’s comment he said, “I laughed and I laughed hard. I think everyone had a laugh at that. And I’ll leave it at that.”

The actor then added, “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 & Furious movies they do that will be without me.”

Diesel has addressed the beef between Johnson and him in a Men’s Health interview and said, “I could give a lot of tough love. Not Felliniesque, but I would do anything I’d have to do in order to get performances in anything I’m producing.”
