Remember the Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson beef feud a few years ago? Calls of unprofessionalism and egos clashing and Johnson fuming about the whole situation?
Further furore came from Tyrese Gibson over the Hobbs & Shaw spin-off that occurred just afterwards.
Well, some people saw it as politics, others as a rouse to drive up interest in the Fast & Furious series, but now the saga has taken an even more dynamic turn.
Vin Diesel over Instagram (yep, at least for now as we know, not a phone call or in-person) has asked that Dwayne Johnson returns.
In a post with a photo of the two of them he states:
My little brother Dwayne… the time has come. The world awaits the finale of Fast 10.
He then goes on to state that his kids still call him “Uncle Dwayne” and that he says “out of love” that Johnson “must show up” and has an important role to play”.
He also calls him “my little brother”.
Should Dwayne Johnson join Vin Deisel in another Fast movie?

This is certainly a turn up for the books. Will Dwayne Johnson return? Can he even fit this into his schedule and put a previous feud in the past?
We’ve seen the power of Johnson at the box office, especially with the Fast & Furious franchise, and this seems like a powerful decision on Vin Diesel’s part to make.
At the same time Vin, could you not give him a call?
What do you think of the post?
Will Dwayne Johnson respond, and would you like him to appear in a Fast & Furious movie alongside Vin Deisel?
He’s highly active on Instagram himself, which may be why this is the route Vin went down.
