Tyrese Gibson Drops An Ultimatum In His Feud With Dwayne Johnson

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.

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?
