After a public feud, Vin Diesel publically asked Dwayne Johnson to return to the “Fast & Furious” franchise.
On Sunday, Diesel took to Instagram to extend his apology to Johnson as well as plead for his return to the final film of the franchise.
Alongside a picture of the two facing each other Diesel wrote, “My little brother Dwayne… the time has come. The world awaits the finale of Fast 10.”
Diesel even added that his children still refer to Johnson as “Uncle Dwayne” and that there isn’t a holiday “that they and you don’t send well wishes.”
Johnson made his debut in the franchise as Luke Hobbs in “Fast Five” and reprised his role for 3 additional films and eventually landed a spin-off, “Hobbs & Shaw.”
The pair’s feud began in 2016 when Johnson posted a photo to his Instagram slamming unnamed male co-stars.
“Some (male co-stars) conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t,” Johnson wrote in the now-deleted post.
In July Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter that he would not be returning to any “Fast & Furious” movies, but it seems that Diesel is ready to welcome him back to fulfill the ending he promised the late Paul Walker.
Much of their conflict came from Diesel’s “tough love” towards Johnson.
Johnson said he and Diesel were “philosophically two different people” who “approach the business of moviemaking in two very different ways.”
“I swore that we would reach and manifest the best Fast in the finale that is 10! I say this out of love… but you must show up, do not leave the franchise idle you have a very important role to play. Hobbs can’t be played by no other. I hope that you rise to the occasion and fulfill your destiny,” said Diesel in his post.
