ENTERTAINMENT: The Rock will not be part of ‘Fast and Furious 9’

Looks like the Fast and Furious franchise is still not over. Fast and Furious 9 is under development and it has been reported that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson won’t be part of it.

Apparently, the actor is busy with another film, Hobbs and Shaw.

With this, looks like the producers of Fast and Furious 9 won’t have to deal with the drama of Tyrese Gibson walking if they choose The Rock over him. For those who aren’t aware of this, apparently, Tyrese gave an ultimatum of either him or The Rock on the next Fast and Furious movie.

Still, The Rock mentioned to MTV that he might return for Fast and Furious 10 at some point “down the road.” After all, as he says, there’s some “unfinished business between Hobbs and Dom” that they’ll have to work out if the two actors can agree to be in the same room together once again.

Hobbs & Shaw, where The Rock partners up with Jason Statham, will be in theaters this year. Fast And Furious 9 is set for a 2020 release.
