Everyone relax, Vin Diesel and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson are friends again and are back for Fast & Furious 9

To the surprise of no-one it looks like Vin Diesel and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson have sorted out their recent feud and will be coming together again for Fast & Furious 9.

In a couple of weeks that has seen all sorts of speculation about why the duo have been at each other’s throats over the movie (here), it seems that they have managed to sort it all out… we suspect the movie opening to international numbers that out sold Star Wars: The Force Awakens helped them make up their minds.

Apparently the dispute was over movie ‘real estate’ which means that it came down to how much screen time each were getting and who had the best fights, most time naked on screen… stuff like that: “It became a big issue for Dwayne and Vin, but ultimately, Dwayne acknowledged it was Vin’s movie – he’s listed #1 on the call sheet.”

So it was all over, what, vanity? We almost wished it was over something more… substantial.

That said, we’d be liars if we said we weren’t glad to have Dom and Hobbs back for the next installment which is currently set for 2019.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
