The Dwayne Johnson vs. Vin Diesel feud seems to be fizzling out
In a recent video that he posted to facebook (the social networking site where Dwayne Johnson originally made the feud between he and Vin Diesel official), Vin Diesel actually doesn’t want to fight it looks like. In a somewhat languid 20 minute video, Diesel doesn’t acknowledge the feud by he actually saying ‘there is a feud‘, however he does address his Fast 8 co-star directly with some positive remarks. “The reason we brought Dwayne Johnson into Fast 5”, Diesel explains during the recent facebook video, “… was because of you (the fans).’
“There was a girl”, Diesel continues, “… named Jan Kelly who said, ‘I would love to see you work together on screen.’ So the role that was originally written for Tommy Lee Jones, we gave it to Dwayne and he shined in it”.
Diesel’s facebook video comes just after Dwayne Johnson posted a picture to his Instagram captioned: “Finished strong and on to the next. That’s an officially wrap on #FastAndFurious8. Thank you to our director @fgarygray for the vision and execution. Thank you UNIVERSAL for being tremendous partners as always, thank you to all my fellow co-stars for the daily effort and grind. Scott Eastwood you handsome sumbitch! Natalie Emmanuel I have a cold Budweiser ready for you and Tyrese Gibson you still have the biggest smile and forehead I’ve ever seen.😂 And a huge THANK YOU to our hard working production crew – the backbone of our business. Your kind words meant a lot to me last night – thank you! In the end, we all rallied, as great teams do, kicked ass and will deliver an amazing movie to the world. Proud of our entire FAST FAMILY. ”
So although Dwayne Johnson didn’t give a call out to Vin Diesel by name, he did say ‘Proud of our entire FAST FAMILY’, and that obviously is inclusive of Vin Diesel (who of course has been a part of the Fast And Furious franchise since the beginning). Although they haven’t been seen together and hugged it out, it would seem the the Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel feud is at least somewhat ratified so that’s good at least.
