Fast and furious indeed.
Dwayne Johnson is not a happy camper and that cannot be good for anyone. The Rock took to social media to drop the verbal rock bottom on some unspecified actors working on “Fast 8”.
Those unspecified male co-stars apparently include Vin Diesel, according to TMZ. The two men reportedly had a secret meeting to ease tensions, which are said to have made shooting scenes extremely difficult.
Part of The Rock’s frustration seems to come from decisions Diesel has made as a producer. There are also reports that many cast members are upset with Johnson for lashing out on social media so close to wrap.
In the Facebook post, the wrestler-turned-actor began by praising the attitude and work ethic of the film’s crew and female cast, before dropping some bombs on his fellow men: “My male co-workers however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.”
And you need to feel sorry for some of the stunt doubles involved, because Johnson says he brought genuine intensity to the set: “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. Bottom line is it’ll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that’s embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part. Final week on ‘Fast 8’ and I will finish strong.”
