The Rock and Vin Diesel Continues to Battle

Or is it really? According to some sources, there seems to be a claim that the Rock is taking a page out of his wrestling days and fabricated the fake feud to promote the Fast 8 movie as well as an up coming WWE match. However, what doesn’t add up is the fact that the feud is pretty one sided. If this is in fact fake, there should be more banter back and forth to drive up the drama. In this case, it’s been pretty one sided.

The likelihood of the feud being legit is pretty high. Ultimately, the Fast and Furious franchise is a money printing machine. There has been a loyal following to the movie franchise and the lead characters from the day it premiered in theatres over 15 years ago. Realistically, the movie doesn’t need a lot of hype and will still make boat loads of money.

Whether or not the feud between Diesel and The Rock is real is yet to be determined.

The Rock’s Beef with Vin Diesel

By now, we all know that the Rock had called out his Fast 8 male cast members as being “Candy Asses”, but what we didn’t know is who that statement was targeted at. After a few days of having this news swirl on the internet, the rumor mill is pointing to Vin Diesel as the target of that comment. With a movie franchise like this with so many big stars on set, it was just a matter of time before heads butt and tempers flare.

The claim is that Diesel and Johnson were disagreeing on some on set decisions. Specifically, decisions being made by Diesel were not sitting well with Johnson. So much so that the tension on set was making people uncomfortable.

Fast 8 Goes Cuban


The Fast and Furious crew were seen filming the latest iteration of the franchise in Cuba. The crew were onset with a bunch of movie camera cars which simply means one thing, more chase scenes to come! With Cuban nation welcoming the US crew to shoot the lucrative Fast 8 movie in their country, it is going to be very exciting to be exposed to a country where we typically don’t see much of.

Mr. Nice Guy himself Vin Diesel was seen taking time between and after shoots mingling and embracing his Cuban fans. The old crew will all be joining in on the new Fast 8 movie, so be prepared to see more screen time by Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Lucas Black, Kurt Russell, and Jason Statham. We have heard that even Eva Mendes will be making a reappearance in the new franchise movie.

Vin Diesel Reveals Furious 8


Vin Diesel revealed today that the official launch date of the latest installment from the franchise, called Furious 8, will be April 14, 2017. This isn’t the first time the actor has shared information with the public. He initially teased us with a movie poster that had the signature Fast and Furious look to it, albeit with a New York backdrop revealing the movie’s planned location. Now, he releases another movie poster showing Toretto and his 1970’s Dodge Charger R/T and in big caption “New Roads Ahead”, likely signifying the closing of the last chapter with the departing story line of the late Paul Walker, and a journey into the new life ahead.

The Fast and Furious franchise continues to break box office records with the last installment, Furious 7, earning $1 billion world wide. In the genre of car movies, the Fast and Furious team has certainly found a winning combination that keeps viewers coming back for more.

Expect to see familiar faces like Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges reprise their roles in the upcoming movie. Also likely returning stars are Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

Fast and Furious 8 in Iceland


With the eighth and ninth installments of the Fast and Furious movies confirmed, there certainly won’t be any shortage of fast cars, action sequences, and Vin Diesel over the next few years. A couple of months ago, Diesel himself leaked an image of a movie poster for F&F8 with New York in the background. But we all know that the franchise doesn’t like to stay in one place.

Recently, photos started circulating of filming crews in Akranes, Iceland on set accompanied with quite the list of artillery vehicles. From armored trucks, to tanks, to staged explosions, it looks like the next installment of the F&F movies is going to pack another explosive punch.

Fifteen years later, the franchise is going as strong as ever. Who would’ve thought a street racing movie could go so far.

Fast and Furious 9 and 10


Last month Vin Diesel teased fans with a poster of Fast 8 which had the Empire State Building in its backdrop. Little more is know about the new film other than it will be directed by Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray, and we can’t freaking wait for the next movie to drop on April 14, 2017! The Fast and Furious franchise seems to have the Midas touch to everything it makes. So much so Diesel tease fans further by confirming dates for a 9th and 10th installment.

The latter two films for the franchise will be hitting theatres on April 19, 2019 and April 2, 2021 respectively. No other information about the films have been released, especially details about the cast. What we can expect from any Fast and Furious movies is action packed sequences, ridiculous car chase scenes that don’t make any sense but are both entertaining and exhilarating to watch, and Dom bringing along his family to rid the world of another crime lord.

The title of this fourth installment will be simply Fast and Furious.
