For a series so big on togetherness, there seems to be a lot of bad blood involved behind-the-scenes of the Fast and the Furious franchise. At least where Tyrese Gibson and Dwayne Johnson are concerned. The internet beef between the two stars just got even more intense, with Gibson threatening to quit the franchise entirely if Johnson continues to be involved.

Who would have ever thought there’d be more Fast and Furious drama off screen than in all of the franchise’s movies combined? The latest shots fired come from Tyrese Gibson, who recently begged Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson not to make a spin-off movie and then flew into an Instagram rage and specifically blamed Johnson when Universal announced Fast 9 was being delayed and the spin-off was indeed happening. Apparently not even franchise paterfamilias Vin Diesel could smooth things over.
It’s clear Tyrese has no love for The Rock at this point, and now he’s posted a video of Johnson shredding Tyrese’s 2015 R&B album Black Rose. But is Johnson just kidding around in this video? Take a look and judge for yourselves, because there’s obviously nothing more important you can be doing with your time than diving into the insane feuding of the stars of one of the world’s most successful movie franchises.

It’s been quite a week for fans of the Fast and Furious franchise.
There’s officially a Fast and Furious spin-off in the works that will focus on Dwayne Johnson as Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham as former villain Deckard Shaw. The film is slated to arrive in the spring of 2019 with the possibility of Shane Black directing, but not everyone is happy about this expansion of the Fast and Furious franchise.
Tyrese Gibson took to Instagram (again) this week to complain about Dwayne Johnson’s efforts to veer off from the primary Fast and Furious franchise, claiming that he’s splitting up the “family” they’ve built over the years and that none of the characters should be going solo. Now the patriarch of this makeshift family, Vin Diesel, has basically told everyone to chill out and grow up.

Is more trouble brewing behind the scenes in the Fast and Furious #family? In a now-deleted post on Instagram, Tyrese Gibson, who first joined the racing-turned-heist-movie saga in 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious, essentially begged Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson not to make a Fast and Furious spin-off until Fast 9 is completed. His language is particularly strange (even for Tyrese), so this deserves a much closer look.

This weekend will bring another blockbuster trailer debut, this time for the eighth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. It’s hard to believe that we’ve come this far with Vin Diesel and the rest of the crew, but here we are. So far we’ve been calling the film Fast 8, but the movie has just gotten a brand new title, and it’s both kinda silly, but still pretty cool. The sequel will be called The Fate of the Furious, but sadly not The F8 of the Furious.
In addition to the new title announcement, the first footage from the sequel has just debuted online before the full trailer arrives sometime on Sunday. It has all the insane action you’d expect, but this time in Cuba and the bitter cold of Iceland. Some of this action looks like Mad Max: Fury Road on ice, and that’s just awesome.

It also gives us our first look at Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju in the film with that wild red beard of his intact. Check out the Fast 8 cast photo below. Read More »

Grammy winner turned actor Tyrese Gibson already counts two big franchises in his career with Transformers and Fast and Furious, but early this year we learned the actor was campaigning hard to be the new Green Lantern for the developing DC Comics cinematic universe.
Gibson seemed to hint that a big announcement was coming at Comic-Con, but the only thing we learned in San Diego was that the reboot of the aforementioned DC Comics property was called Green Lantern Corps., essentially confirming the previous rumor that there would be two Green Lanterns taking the lead this time, almost in a buddy cop kind of scenario.
Now the actor has confirmed that he has met with Warner Bros. Pictures about playing Green Lantern, but that’s about all he can say right now. Find out more about the potential of Tyrese Gibson playing Green Lantern below. Read More »
