Uh-oh, it looks like the war between Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is getting more intense! And now their feud is forcing their Fast 8 cast mates to choose sides! Who’s side are you on?
We’re still trying to make up our minds about the whole situation, but when it comes to the cast and crew – which includes Tyrese Gibson, 37, Michelle Rodriguez, 38, and Ludacris, 30 – they all are on Team Rock, 44, according to TMZ.
While The Rock’s rant on Facebook, calling out Vin, 49, and his male costars was harsh, not all of his claims were unfounded, according to production sources. The Rock also called out Vin for being unprofessional and many people agree! Vin has been reportedly showed up to set up to 30 minutes to an hour late. And his tardiness was simply because he was in his trailer and refused to come out, members of the crew told TMZ. That is not a good look.
And it gets worse! Production was reportedly forced to change their 7a.m. call times to 10 a.m. because Vin didn’t like early mornings. And the crew was brought to their boiling point when Vin reportedly showed up to shoot scenes and criticized other cast members on their acting. Ouch!
While the cast and crew have some hard feelings about the Fast & Furious veteran, they have a totally different view of The Rock, who joined the Fast family in the 2011 film, Fast Five. They say he’s the “ultimate professional” who is always punctual and slam dunks his scenes, according to TMZ. And as a plus, he’s super easy to work with!
The Fast cast choosing The Rock’s side may be the last straw for Vin. He and The Rock have been feuding for a long time now, as we reported, but it took new flight after Vin stormed off set in a rage on Aug. 8. The crew may have their mind made up, but Vin promised to “tell everything,” which may play a factor in who will join his team. Fast 8 has officially finished shooting, but the crew still has two more installments in the series. So hopefully they smooth everything over soon!
