Family Rift? Vin Diesel Speaks Out About Alleged Fast 8 Fallout With Dwayne Johnson

12 August 2016 2:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a whirlwind week for the Toretto crew. Just as F. Gary Gray’s Fast 8 nears the finish line, reports emerged of an alleged bust-up between Dwayne Johnson and another producer on the blockbuster sequel – and it didn’t take long for those clues to point in the direction of series stalwart Vin Diesel.

The drama can be traced back to one of The Rock’s many Instagram posts, where he called out some unnamed male counterparts – unnamed male counterparts he labelled “candy asses.”

Here’s an extract from Johnson’s online rant: “some [of my male counterparts] conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy a**es. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and »

Is The Rock's Fast 8 Beef with Vin Diesel? Actors Reportedly Have Secret Meeting as Tyrese Gibson Speaks Out

10 August 2016 6:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After Dwayne Johnson called out some of his "chicken s---," "candy-ass" Fast 8 male costars on Instagram, speculation ran rampant on just who exactly had upset The Rock.

Diesel, 49, and Johnson, 44, allegedly met Tuesday on the Atlanta set to harsh out their differences, which may have stemmed from decisions Diesel has made as a producer. According to the site, it's unclear whether the two reached a resolution. »

The Rock Calls out His 'Chicken S---', 'Candy-Ass' Fast 8 Male Co-Stars

9 August 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Oh no. Someone upset The Rock. Dwayne Johnson is finishing up his last week shooting the eighth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise. And while the high-speed films are known for their intense action on-screen, it appears things off-screen can be just as intense. The 44-year-old actor took to Instagram on Monday to praise the sequel, its "hard working" crew, Universal studios and his "amazing" female co-stars - Michelle Rodriguez, Charlize Theron, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Helen Mirren. But wrapping in his message of support were some choice words for some unnamed male costars. "There's no other »

Fast & Furious 8: someone's upset Dwayne Johnson

9 August 2016 1:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 9, 2016

"My blood is legit boiling": Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has taken to Facebook to denounce his co-stars in an angry post. Who's upset him?

Okay, admit it: who managed to upset Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson? Was it you, Vin Diesel? Mr Statham - not you, surely? Whoever it was, Johnson's in such a bad mood that he's taken to Facebook to vent his anger.

First praising the crew and female co-stars in Fast & Furious 8, which has nearly finished shooting, Johnson then takes his social media post in a surprising direction.

"My female co-stars are amazing and I love 'em," Johnson writes. "My male co-stars, however, are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't."

Johnson then goes on to describe the mystery co-stars in rather scathing terms - and adds that his antipathy towards those actors fed into »

Helen Mirren Arrives in New Fast and Furious 8 Set Photo

3 August 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren confirmed she had joined the cast of Fast and Furious 8, which came about after she commented last year that she wants to play a "mad driver" in a Fast & Furious movie. Unfortunately, the actress won't be doing any actual driving in the movie. And she'll only be on the set for one day. It seems that day has already come, with franchise star Vin Diesel sharing our first look at Helen Mirren on the set of Fast and Furious 8.

Vin Diesel revealed on Instagram yesterday that it was an "honor and joy" to work with Helen Mirren, although no details were given for her role. The photo shows Vin Diesel sporting a traditional Fast & Furious look with a sleeveless shirt, while Helen Mirren is dressed far more elegant.

The Rock Sparks A Prison Riot In All-New Fast 8 Set Video

23 July 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now firmly past the halfway point in production, Universal’s onslaught of set videos for Fast 8 is beginning to reach its crescendo.

Yes, the tire tracks are still fresh from yesterday’s Fast Friday snippet, where F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and series stalwart Vin Diesel reflected on the filming process and action sequences hitherto. Nipping at the heels of that Bts video is a post from Dwayne Johnson, who looks set to stage the prison riot to end all prison riots.

A shot of Johnson’s Luke Hobbs behind bars was released a few weeks back, indicating that our big friendly giant could find himself in a spot of bother by the time the 2017 sequel checks in. One thing’s for sure: The Iceman cometh, and he don’t fuck around.

I know you guys can see it… I have so much damn Fun playin’ the character of Hobbs. »
