The Fast & Furious franchise has suffered a new loss: Dwayne Johnson, que interpreta a Luke Hobbes, has announced that it will not return for Fast & Furious 10 and 11. And this despite the fact that Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel put an end to their differences … at least in public.
Assuming they resolved their differences, it appears that Vin Diesel’s recent comments have opened up some of the old wounds, at least a little bit. The actor noted in a new interview for SlashFilm who only showed Johnson “tough love” to bring out the best in him while filming movies. Now, Johnson has reacted to these statements and has made it clear that he will not return for the last two Fast & Furious films.
“I laughed and laughed a lot“said Johnson.”I think everyone laughed at that. I will leave it at that. I wish you the best. I wish you all the best in Fast & Furious 9. And I wish you the best of luck in Fast & Furious 10 and Fast & Furious 11, and in the rest of the Fast & Furious movies they make without me“.
Dwayne Johnson’s comments leave no room for doubt or speculation: Universal will make Fast & Furious 10 and 11 without Hobbes. However, numerous media have pointed out that Johnson’s comments leave the door open to other types of films such as Hobbes & Shaw. In fact, many fans are already talking about Hobbs & Han.
It is sad news for the family, but still years to go for the next two main Fast & Furious movies, so anything could happen.
