Dwayne Johnson recruiting talent for Fast and Furious spinoff

Dwayne Johnson recruiting talent for Fast and Furious spinoff”

The Fate of the Furious star, who reportedly feuded with Vin Diesel while making this year's (17) instalment of the supercharged vehicle franchise, attracted the ire of fellow film series star Tyrese Gibson last week (ends06Oct17) when the Hobbs news broke.

TMZ caught up with Tyrese, who was lounging in a limo and asked the actor about the upcoming movie that's set to hit theatres in two years. Everybody is coming at me like I am hating on Dwayne for the spinoff but I'm not.

Fans of the "Fast and Furious" franchise will be sad to know that the highly anticipated next installment of the film series, "Fast and Furious 9" has been pushed back to spring 2020.

Above, you'll see a picture of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Tyrese Gibson looking all buddy buddy while promoting Furious 7.

Universal has dated the project after recently delaying the release of "Fast and Furious 9" one year to April 10, 2020.

The pair were last seen nearly coming to blows during a prison riot in the eighth installment of the series, "Fate of the Furious", that ended with Hobbs and Shaw working together with the other members of the ensemble cast. My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has granted me the time to do just that.

"I've got to say, in all honesty, it's the biggest piece of dog shit I've ever heard", The Rock said, speaking right into the camera. "So what's the reason we pushing the release date back now?" "It appears that he's so focused on furthering his own self-interest that he is making decisions from the seat that he's sitting in", he continued.

"I tried to warn you guys".

The franchise's main star, Vin Diesel, also addressed the controversy by sharing a photo of himself and Johnson on Instagram, saying the delay was not all because of the former wrestler.

Here's the post in question, with a little bit of footage announcing the release date of July 26th, 2019. "My vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other unbelievable actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool".
