Are Vin Diesel and Jason Statham fighting in the set of Fast & Furious 9?
Statham was in the spinoff movie with Johnson, but there were no reports that dragged him into the feud. The drama only revolved around the two main actors of the franchise "Fast & Furious." Statham's name was never dragged into all the drama until now.
According to the news released by Globe, it was brought to Statham's attention the plan of Diesel to cut him out of all the future movies in the series of Fast & Furious. "Hobbes & Shaw was a huge success for both Statham and Johnson, but there is no news about a sequel to that movie," an insider told the news outlet. The source added that if another movie would push through, he would still be a part of it but not for the same rate.
The news, however, about the bad blood between Diesel and Dwayne Johnson on the most recent franchise of the film, The Fate of the Furious may be true. The conflict started when Johnson decided to star on a movie spinoff, Hobbs & Shaw. Reports said that the movie was the reason for the delay of the Fast & Furious 9.
Vin has reportedly left Statham out to dry. But this has been cleared by Gossip Cop. Such a notion has been considered inaccurate. Because even though Vin Diesel is also one of the producers of the Fast & Furious franchise, he was not involved in the production and management of the movie Hobbes & Shaw. In fact, there have been reports that Diesel wasn't particularly happy with the movie production, to begin with.
The idea that Diesel has the power to shut that production out has no truth in it. In fact, the feud between Diesel and Johnson have seemingly ended when Johnson posted a video on Instagram last month. He thanked Diesel for the apparent support he gave the movie Hobbs & Shaw. Although the F&F 9 does not include Dwayne Johnson in it, he hints that he might be back in the future installments of the movie.
As for the future of Statham in the Hobbs & Shaw movie sequel, there hasn't been any official report about it. Whether it is going to happen or not, the idea that Diesel and Statham are at war is simply not true nor is it possible.
Fans should instead look forward to Fast & Furious 9. It promises to be really good.
