Dwayne Johnson accuses Vin Diesel of manipulation to join ‘Fast & Furious 10’

In an interview with CNN, the Young Rock actor explicitly stated that he has no interest in reprising his role as Luke Hobbs, even after Vin Diesel issued a public plea. Diesel wrote on Instagram in Dec last year, "My little brother Dwayne... the time has come. The world awaits the finale of Fast 10. As you know, my children refer to you as Uncle Dwayne in my house. There is not a holiday that goes by that they and you don't send well wishes... but the time has come. Legacy awaits." Though Diesel's post was met with excitement from fans of the franchise, Dwayne said he was "very surprised" to see it shared. "This past June, when Vin and I actually connected not over social media, I told him that I would not be returning to the franchise," Johnson explained. And though Diesel seemingly had good intentions, Johnson called his post an "example of his manipulation," saying, "I didn't like that he brought up his children in the post, as well as Paul Walker's death. Leave them out of it."
