Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel have reportedly put their differences aside and will both return to star in the ninth Fast and the Furious film.
According to TMZ, the pair met privately several times to iron out their issues, and are now “good” and “1000% in” for Fast and Furious 9.
The outlet also reports that money was not the cause for their feud, their sources say the argument started over who got the most screen time in The Fate of the Furious. We became aware of the feud when Johnson shared a post on Instagram that labelled his “male co-stars” as “candy-ass”. TMZ then reported that this was aimed directly at Diesel.
This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling – you're right. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part?. Final week on FAST 8 and I'll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses
It’s no surprise to hear that a ninth film in the franchise is already in the works, after Fast 8 broke records at the weekend, becoming the highest-grossing opening of all time. And now with Johnson and Diesel sorting out their problems, they can start planning for the next movie.
