  • Dwayne Johnson Posts a Behind the Scenes Video from the Fast 8 Set

Dwayne Johnson posts a video from behind the scenes on the set of Fast 8 saying that he is nothing without his team.

Dwayne Johnson is making a show of his friendly relations with the crew of the Fast 8 movie. The actor took a shot at his male co-stars earlier this week, calling them names and calling them out for their unprofessional behaviour in his books.

He thanked his female co-stars Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez for their dedicated and professional conduct on sets of Fast 8.

He also thanked the crew and the studios for all their support and hard work. So it was just his male co-stars that had his ‘blood boiling’ while shooting for the movie. It did not take much time for the sources to reveal that it was one specific male co-star that had Johnson’s blood boiling. 

Vin Diesel, who is plays the lead character and also serves as the producer for the movie is the one having issues with Johnson. It became very apparent when the two had a meeting in Atlanta in an effort to sort things out.

Tyrese Gibson, also on the movie, cleared his side by posting a message that he was not the male co-star Dwayne was referring to. He wrote that Dwayne was actually one of the coolest, down to Earth and professional guy he has had to work with. 

So it’s apparent that it is just Vin that Dwayne is butting heads with. He posted a video on Instagram in which he is standing with the crew and the stunt team and cast from the jail scene shoot for the movie.

Dwayne is dressed in sleeveless orange jumpsuit along with stunt coordinator JJ Perry. In the video as well as the caption of the video, Dwayne has the same thing to say, “My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There's no greatness ever achieved alone. It’s always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered. HUGE THANK YOU to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team - as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @samoanstuntman. Thank you team for the willingness to "die hard" and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie. #MyStuntBrothers #Loco4Life You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team - that's a family - there's gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it. At the end of the day me and #F8 co-stars all agree on the most important thing: Delivering an incredible movie to the world. #Fast8 #IcemanCometh #FamilyGrowth”

While the message is friendly and cordial, it sends another loud and clear, he does not have a problem with the Fast 8 crew and cast. 

While many might be questioning Vin Diesel’s behavior onset after Dwayne’s socially active show of confidence, sources reveal that it is actually Dwayne who can be responsible for the problem.

According to sources, Dwayne had caused production delays due to his scheduling. The production delays instigated Vin Diesel to act harshly and make decisions for the movie that did not sit well with Dwayne in return.
