Tyrese Gibson is at it again, dragging Dwayne Johnson all over social media. Why? Because the Johnson and Jason Statham spinoff of the Fast and Furious franchise is moving forward.
Hello world………. hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe…….. I’m sorry to announce that if Dewayne is in Fast9 there will no more Roman Peirce - You mess with family and my daughters survival I mess with yours……… close your eyes dude you’re a “Clown”…… #CandyAssBitchMade All my real one…. Men on integrity… my real ones out here stand UP…… folks that GP to the gym and get big naturally #NoJuice #NoOJ spin off huh? Spin off these nuts selfish champ…… pause notice who’s got his arms around my shoulder and who’s standing alone - #OurChildrenMatter
All of that to say that a Johnson and Statham spinoff is enough for him to walk away from the ridiculously successful franchise that still has two installments left. It seems short-sighted and like Gibson hasn’t really thought his “threat” through.
The actor makes an estimated $3-5 million dollars per movie since he joined the franchise in the fifth installment. He’s willing to drop that income just to make the studio choose between him and Johnson. Which would you choose: paying Gibson to appear in the last two F&F movies or basically printing your own money with the Statham and Johnson spinoff? Seems like a poor ultimatum to throw out.
Hobbs and Shaw will hit theaters on July 26, 2019, and Fast and Furious 9 will hit them April 10, 2020. This breaks with the tradition of every F&F movie coming out every two years. It’s not a big deal at all, right?
