Dwayne Johnson (Rock) Rejects Vin Diesel’s Invite to Rejoin ‘Fast and Furious’
Dwayne Johnson has gone on record to say he will not be rejoining the “Fast and Furious” franchise, despite Vin Diesel’s repeated invitations, for the upcoming 10th film.
Why does the Rock hate Vin Diesel?
Back in November, Vin Diesel took to Instagram to ask Johnson (ROCK) to bury their feud and return to the multi-billion-dollar franchise. The two actors fell out back in 2016, clashing during the making of “The Fate of the Furious.” Diesel, who also serves as a producer on the films, said he was ready to bury the hatchet.
Dwayne Johnson Sets The Record Straight That He Isn’t Doing Fast & Furious 10, Says Vin Diesel’s Post Was An Example Of ‘Manipulation’
Recently, Diesel had extended an invitation to The Rock on Instagram, asking him to reprise his role.
“My little brother Dwayne… the time has come,” he wrote at the time. “The world awaits the finale of Fast 10. As you know, my children refer to you as Uncle Dwayne in my house. There is not a holiday that goes by that they and you don’t send well wishes… but the time has come. Legacy awaits.”
In a new interview with CNN, Johnson says the two already agreed he would not be returning to the films in private, and accused Diesel of being manipulative in bringing his children into the social media post.

“I told [Diesel] directly that I would not be returning to the franchise. I was firm yet cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return,” Johnson said. “Vin’s recent public post was an example of his manipulation. I didn’t like that he brought up his children in the post, as well as Paul Walker’s death. Leave them out of it. We had spoken months ago about this and came to a clear understanding.”

Johnson, however, did wish well for the rest of his “Fast and Furious” team. “My goal all along was to end my amazing journey with this incredible franchise with gratitude and grace,” Johnson said. “It’s unfortunate that this public dialogue has muddied the waters. Regardless, I’m confident in the ‘Fast’ universe and its ability to consistently deliver for the audience… I truly wish my former co-stars and crew members the best of luck and success in the next chapter.”
Johnson has been part of the “Fast and Furious” franchise since 2011’s “Fast Five.”

Is fast and furious 10 the last one?
They’re not pumping the brakes just yet. Fast and Furious 10 will be the second-to-last film in the blockbuster franchise, and Dominic Toretto’s next adventure is set to be one of the biggest so far.
“Just wait for 10,” Vin Diesel, who plays Dom, said in a January 2021 interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Let’s just say, the fact that you guys know that the studio is saying we can’t cover all this ground that needs to be covered in just one movie, you can only imagine what is to come.”
The ninth installment, which was released in June 2021, found Dom going up against his estranged brother, Jakob (John Cena), who was trying to steal a machine powerful enough to hack into every computerized weapons system in the world.
The complicated plan to stop the cyber attack took some team members to the International Space Station, but eventually Dom, his wife Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and their team — including Mia (Jordan Brewster), Roman (Tyrese Gibson), Tej (Ludacris) and Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) — stopped the evil plan. However, they let Jakob get away.
What is the correct order of Fast and Furious movies?
You may not notice if you’re just watching the Fast Saga for the heists, car stunts, and biceps instead of plot, but the films jump back in time pretty significantly if you watch them in release order — primarily so that Sung Kang could continue playing the fan-favorite character Han and hang out with the family after the character seemingly died at the end of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Midway through the series, Jason Statham’s character Deckard Shaw claimed responsibility for Han’s death and ended the extended flashback. So, while Tokyo Drift was the third film released in the franchise, the correct chronological order of the films is (deep breath): The Fast and the Furious, 2, Fast 2 Furious, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Furious 7, Fate of the Furious, and F9: The Fast Saga or 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 3, 7, 8, 9.
Han’s return in F9, and the return of his pals from Tokyo Drift, explain what everyone in the sort-of spinoff has been up to since Han faked his death. They even get to join in the family dinner at the end of the film. This does mean that Tokyo Drift star Lucas Black, at 38 years old, is technically playing a recent college graduate (or college drop-out) when he shows back up in Furious 7 and F9, since he was in Tokyo for High School and only about six or seven years have passed in story time. Just, uh, go with it.
What does Vin Diesel think about Hobbs and Shaw?
It comes after a very public feud between the two Hollywood heavyweights. In an Instagram post, Vin said The Rock has “a very important role to play”, adding that his character Hobbs could not be played by anyone else. … Calling him “little brother Dwayne”, he asked him not to leave “the franchise idle”
F10 (also known as F9: The Fast Saga and Fast & Furious 9) is a 2021 American action film directed by Justin Lin from a screenplay by Daniel Casey and Lin. F10 is the first film in the franchise since The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) not written by Chris Morgan.
Diesel then told USA Today the situation had been blown out of proportion, and the duo were friends off-screen. Diesel also said he “protects the franchise” by taking hits for the good of the cast and crew. “I protect everybody including Dwayne. I protected Dwayne more than he’ll ever know.
He was raised by his white mother and adoptive African-American father, Irving H. Vincent, an acting instructor and theater manager. Diesel has stated that he is “of ambiguous ethnicity.” His mother has English, German, and Scottish roots.
