Things are still thorny with the Fast and Furious family, following the news that Fast and Furious 9 has been returned a year to the mid-year of 2020, and in its place in 2019 will be a turn-off film featuring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. Not long ago, Tyrese Gibson had given his emotions a chance to be known over Johnson, and he wasn’t upbeat.
Fast & Furious row continues over new spin-off movie
He’s cleared up his considerations in another meeting with TMZ, saying that “I don’t know what they’re doing. Everybody coming at me like I’m hating on Dwayne about his spinoff, but I’m not. The truth is, I just wish he was releasing it at a different time”.
“It’s not a conflict, it’s just The Fast & The Furious is like a holiday. The Fast & The Furious family – the fans, the tribe, the people that have been rocking with us for 16 years – you know, pushing our release date back… it’s only happened one time in the history of the Fast and the Furious [franchise], is when we lost our brother, Paul Walker. So, what’s the reason we’re pushing the release date back now?”
He included that “I just got a problem with Dwayne: it appears he’s being selfish. It appears that he’s so focused on furthering his own self-interest, he’s making decisions from the seat he’s sitting on. Fast & Furious 9 is not coming out until 2020… it’s fucked up”.
Johnson has reacted to that finished web-based social networking, presenting the accompanying on his Instagram account.
