Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel are best buds again.

Remember when Vin Diesel stormed off the ‘Fast and Furious 8’ set after s complete blowout with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson? Well it looks as though they’ve finally buried the hatchet.

According to TMZ, the ‘Fast and Furious’ co-stars have met up following the enormous success of ‘Fast and Furious 8’ and have decided to put aside their differences.

“The Rock and Vin Diesel have buried the hatchet and both will star in the next installment of the insanely popular ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise,” they revealed. “Our sources say Vin and Dwayne have met privately several times since animosity between them exploded on the set of ‘The Fate of the Furious’. We’re told they are ‘good’ and both are ‘1000% in’ for the next flick.”

So what was this ‘feud’ all about?

It all started with a shocking post from Dwayne Johnson while filming ‘Fast and Furious 8’… and it led many fans to speculate about trouble on set.

“This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8,” he said. “There’s no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. Universal has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love ’em.”

“My male co-stars however are a different story, he added. “Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling – you’re right.”

Following this little outburst, it was claimed that Vin Diesel abruptly stormed off set after filming his final scenes for the movie… and many worked out that Dwayne Johnson’s harsh words were actually directed at Vin.

Thankfully, it looks as though they’ve managed to work it out.

“The sources are opening up about the feud,” said TMZ, “one explaining it was all over ‘real estate’. In movie language, real estate is all about how much an actor shines — who gets the best action scenes, who gets the hottest girl, who shows off their body more, and who gets the most face time.”


Apparently, it became a bit of an issue amongst the two stars…

But Dwayne Johnson eventually conceded that it’s Vin’s movie.

“He’s listed #1 on the call sheet.”

Either way, one thing it wasn’t about – money. Both stars earn millions from the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise, and both are entirely happy with their pay checks.

‘Fast and Furious 8’ stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Scott Eastwood, Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, Kurt Russell and Helen Mirren.

F. Gary Gray directed the film based on a script by Chris Morgan.

‘Fast and Furious 8’ is in cinemas now.
