Vin Diesel, the man who the franchise is about, took to social media to politely SHUT DOWN Tyrese and his Fast and FURIOUS rant about the Hobbs solo movie, which also stars Jason Statham. Read on…
According to Dwayne Johnson, it’s official that a Fast and Furious spin-off in the works focusing on Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham as former villain Deckard Shaw. The film is slated to arrive in the spring of 2019 with the possibility of Shane Black directing, but Tyrese Gibson is NOT happy about it one bit.
Last week Vin Diesel was reflecting on the Fast and Furious saga, by thanking fans for the support.
“I am so grateful to the people in my life who have encouraged me to reach higher… There are people like Pablo, Michelle and Jordanna and so many more who have believed in me and saw my destiny even when I might not have. I often say that when creating and protecting a Saga like Fast, the hardest work happens before our first day of filming…”
“Brotherhood… and all it’s complexities. This scene was filmed in Puerto Rico, I can remember it like it was yesterday. Such a beautiful island, the people were so warm and welcoming. I turned 43 that summer… and my son Vincent was born. A woman named Jan Kelly responded to a question I had asked on Facebook, who they would like to see me work with. She said [she] would love to see me work with Dwayne… I listened to her request and he became Hobbs. I know there has been a lot of speculation as to why the Fast 9 release date was pushed… but it would be unfair to say it is anyone’s fault…”
“…As we plot the course to expand the Fast & Furious universe, one must be mindful to take stock of the roads we took to get here. The pillars of authenticity, family and most importantly, our loyal fan’s perspective, has been instrumental in procuring success. However, like any vehicle that has run around the globe 8 times, the franchise is in need of maintenance. My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has granted me the time to do just that. We have some very exciting news to share soon… stay tuned.
Yours truly, Dom”
“#SwipeLeft – @VinDiesel – Never confuse determination with desperation….. What’s understood don’t have to be explained…… 44 million just got the memo…. Although it appears to be…. I’ve never been in this alone…….. #PerceptionVsReality #FastFamily like I said we don’t fly solo. President Obama’s integrity teachings is of a man who makes everyone feel like they MATTER…..”
Could this mean, a franchise about the Torettos is in the works? It seems the late Paul Walker was the glue that kept the family together and without him, the family is falling apart.
