The behind-the-scenes drama continues to unfold for the Fast & Furious films as Dwayne Johnson has taken to social media to chime in on all of the commotion that’s been happening with the franchise as of late.
Lately, the tension and drama between the actors of the blockbuster street-racing franchise has spilled off the big screen and into real life as after series star Tyrese Gibson aired out his grievances towards Johnson for being the reason for the delay of the 9th Fast & Furious film being pushed back to 2020 and towards the making of spin-off featuring the characters of Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham).
Johnson, however, took to his Instagram to fire back at not only Gibson but also to those who are critical towards Universal Studio’s recent scheduling decisions for the upcoming films, while also seemingly trying to rally for other Fast & Furious co-stars to appear in the upcoming spin-off as well.

Daddy’s gotta go back to work ~ Hobbs. Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neil Moritz. Thank you UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for being tremendous partners who see the big picture and for coming to us years ago with this spinoff idea. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans. I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool. I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans. Smart business. Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum. #HOBBS #SevenBucksProds #NewOpportunities #CandyAssesNeedNotApply JULY 2019

The franchise has used big spectacle sequences to really sell their films and to entertain their audiences since the beginning. The eighth film The Fate of the Furious is hitting theaters this weekend and it’s bound to make even more waves with its special brand of ridiculous action and a memorable set piece or two.
