Tyrese Gibson issued an ultimatum via his social media post, stating that he threatened to quit the production of Fast & Furious 9 if the studio failed to meet his requirements.
"Soap opera" family series Fast & Furious not only continues on the big screen, but also continue in the real world!
As we know, it has been reported several times that actor Tyrese Gibson expressed his frustration with fellow action star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Tyrese Gibson thinks Johnson is a selfish person and has "stolen" the spotlights after Universal Studios announced that they will produce a spin-off film that will focus on Luke Hobbs' character played by Johnson.
Gibson took the spin-off announcement fairly coolly, commenting that the film was only produced to fulfill Dwayne Johnson's ego, and regarded it as a "traitor" from the "Fast & Furious" family.
Not only that, he even blames Johnson because of the production of the spin-off film, the appearance of Fast & Furious 9 should be postponed until 2020 to precede the film's production.
This "drama" is getting heated up recently, Gibson made a very bold and surprising statement through his social media account.
Through the script he uploaded along with a picture of himself with Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel, Gibson declared that he would resign from the ninth entry of the Fast & Furious series if there was Dwayne Johnson in it.
Gibson seems genuinely angry with Johnson, to the point of accusing him of being a clown and has blocked Gibson's relationship with his family, especially with his daughter.
Gibson also emphasized that Johnson was a selfish selfish person rather than someone else, as when Johnson decided to go home and did not participate in the eighth film promotional tour a few months ago, while Gibson himself hardly ever met his family due to his busy production and promotion of the film.
Universal Studios party itself still has not given a response about the conflict between two of their biggest stars. Of course this is a very serious thing, considering Fast & Furious is one of the best-selling movie franchises right now, so internal issues like this should be solved immediately.
The Fast & Furious film spin-off will be released on July 26, 2019 and will be starred by Dwayne Johnson. Meanwhile, Fast & Furious 9 will be released on 10 April 2020.
