Dwayne Johnson Addresses 'Conflict' On Set of 'Furious 8'

Dwayne Johnson has broken his silence regarding the drama on set of Furious 8.

The 44-year-old actor took to Instagram as he reflected on his time filming the movie, and referenced the “conflict” that arose on set.

Although he did not mention names, it has been reported that Vin Diesel was the co-star with whom he had issues.

“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,” Dwayne wrote. “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”

He continued, “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,” Dwayne added. “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”

    Srsly? why did he make this whole thing public to begin with? Very unprofessional of him. Couldn’t he just try & resolve his issues with Vin out of the publics eye?

  • suzybel

    Considering the fact that Vin had a major role in the “Furious” series first, Dwayne Johnson should take a back seat.

    … Abstract from before – ‘Continually Sideways’ would entail Burnouts, Speedway, some Nascar, Stockcar was always Universal and versatile in these fields, & to skate sideways like a ‘crab’.
