Did Dwayne Johnson Just Shade Vin Diesel?
Vin Diesel isn’t pumping the brakes on this request.
“My little brother Dwayne… the time has come,” Vin began his Instagram caption on Sunday, Nov. 7. “The world awaits the finale of Fast 10. As you know, my children refer to you as Uncle Dwayne in my house. There is not a holiday that goes by that they and you don’t send well wishes… but the time has come. Legacy awaits.”
Vin, who said he wanted to “fulfill my promise” to the late Paul Walker, explained that he has set his sights on a new mission.
“I say this out of love… but you must show up,” he called on Dwayne, “do not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play. Hobbs can’t be played by no other. I hope that you rise to the occasion and fulfill your destiny.”
Dwayne has yet to publicly respond to Vin’s request.
The Rock played Luke Hobbs in the franchise’s Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, Furious 7 and The Fate of the Furious, as well as starred in his own spin-off Hobbs & Shaw.
However, in July, the actor announced that he would no longer be a part of any future installments during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
