Vin Diesel took to Instagram to offer an open invitation to Dwayne Johnson to return for the final chapter of the Fast and Furious franchise. The Fate of the Furious, which was released in 2017, was the final time Diesel and Johnson worked together in a Fast and Furious film. “Hobbs can’t be performed by no one else,” Diesel commented alongside a photo from their past performances.
Diesel posted a detailed note to Johnson, asking him to return for Fast and Furious 10 and “fulfill his destiny,” while posting a photo of their characters Dominic Toretto and Luke Hobbs from the franchise. “My little brother Dwayne… the moment has arrived,” the actor added, referring to The Rock as his “little brother.” The world is waiting for the finale of Fast & Furious 10.
In my house, my children refer to you as Uncle Dwayne, as you are aware. They and you send well wishes on every holiday… yet the time has come to say goodbye. Legacy is on the line. Years ago, I promised you that I would keep my word to Pablo.
He went on to say, “Say it out of love… but you have to show up, don’t leave the franchise; you have a vital part to play. No one else is capable of playing Hobbs. I hope you rise to the challenge and achieve your goals.”
For the uninformed, Johnson left the Fast & Furious franchise following a dispute with Diesel. On Instagram, Dwayne Johnson referred to his franchise co-stars as “candy a***s” and “unprofessional.” Following the actor’s viral tweet, Johnson and Diesel met to clear the air, but the former stated in a recent interview that the meeting was not “peaceful,” and it became evident to both stars that they were on opposite sides of the spectrum.
