Popular American actor, Vin Diesel has publicly pleaded with his colleague, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to return to the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise despite their differences.
The movie stars have reportedly not been on good terms since the beginning of 2019. The former wrestler, who portrayed Hobbs in four ‘Fast and Furious’ movies from 2011 to 2019, had famously quit the franchise in July.
“I wish them well on Fast 9, and I wish them the best of luck on Fast 10 and Fast 11 and the rest of the Fast & Furious movies they do that will be without me,”
The Rock had told The Hollywood Reporter.
But on Sunday, November 7, Diesel took to his Instagram page to call upon his former rival Dwayne Johnson to officially bury the hatchet and return to the franchise.
Sharing a photo himself and Dwayne Johnson, Diesel wrote;
“My little brother Dwayne… the time has come. The world awaits the finale of Fast 10,” he wrote, alongside a photo of their characters.
“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. I told you years ago that I was going to fulfil my promise to Pablo.
“I swore that we would reach and manifest the best Fast in the finale that is 10! I say this out of love… but you must show up, do not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play.
“Hobbs can’t be played by any other. I hope that you rise to the occasion and fulfil your destiny.”
