So sad! After Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s major diss at a fellow ‘Fast and the Furious 8’ star, it showed that the once close-knit cast is breaking apart. HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that the family camaraderie on set is gone due to Paul Walker’s tragic death
“The family atmosphere that the cast had is no longer there and it feels more like a job on set. Paul was the voice of reason on the set and with him no longer there the egos have taken over. It is a shame since it was such a cool family. Paul’s death has changed a lot of things for the franchise both professionally and personally,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Paul Walker‘s tragic death in a fiery Nov 30, 2013 car crash happened in the middle of filming Furious 7, and was quite a blow to the cast, especially Vin Diesel, 49, who worked beside him from the very beginning of the franchise. It sounds like this time around doing their first full film without Paul is really taking its toll. It was revealed Aug. 9 that there was total tension and anger among the cast after Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, 44, called out a male cast member as being totally unprofessional during production, going to far as to call him a “Candy A**” and “Chicken Sh*t.” He didn’t name names, but the mostly male cast was totally put on edge over exactly who he was fuming over.
It was later revealed that The Rock’s epic diss was at original cast member Vin who is also a producer on the movie. Apparently Dwayne has been unhappy with some of the decisions that Vin has made and it totally came to a boiling point when he aired his feelings over Facebook and Instagram Aug. 8. An emergency meeting was held the following day between the two actors to see if there was any way to smooth things out, as production as only a week and a half left. We can only wonder what things might have been like if Paul had been around to intervene.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Vin might be acting differently on set because this is his first FF movie without Paul?
