It seems to have been a bumpy ride for the Fast 8 cast and crew. Whether it be the uphill battle to come back from the devastation that happened on Fast 7, or certain male actors (Vin Diesel) not being able to step up to the Rock’s level of performance, allegedly of course. But it now looks like Fast 8 has a official wrapped and The Rock took to his personal Instagram to reveal that production was wrapped. However he also seemed to take this chance to possibly throw a little more shade toward Diesel? Praising fellow cast members, but leaving off a certain bald headed star. Check out the picture and the caption below.
“Finished strong and on to the next. That’s an officially wrap on #FastAndFurious8. Thank you to our director @fgarygray for the vision and execution. Thank you UNIVERSAL for being tremendous partners as always, thank you to all my fellow co-stars for the daily effort and grind. Scott Eastwood you handsome sumbitch! Natalie Emmanuel I have a cold Budweiser ready for you and Tyrese Gibson you still have the biggest smile and forehead I’ve ever seen. And a huge THANK YOU to our hard working production crew – the backbone of our business. Your kind words meant a lot to me last night – thank you! In the end, we all rallied, as great teams do, kicked ass and will deliver an amazing movie to the world. Proud of our entire FAST FAMILY. And now in two weeks I’ll reunite with ol’ friends Kevin Hart & Jack Black and we have the honor to introduce a whole new generation to the amazing world of #JUMANJI. *(for the record we are NOT making a reboot, but rather a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story). It’s also crazy to me how much me, Kev and Jack look like triplets when we’re together. Man this is gonna be FUN. #WheelsUp #ThatsAWrap #FromFastAndFurious #StraightIntoJumanji #BigBrownBaldTattooedMan #DarkChocolateComedicRockStar #BrillaintCrazyCurvyCaucasion #TheseHashtagsAreRidiculous #INeedSleepAndCARBS #ButIWillSettleForTequila”
Shout outs seem to be a lit lacking in the way of Vin, but maybe that’s just because he was closer with Eastwood and Tyrese? Who knows, what we do know is that they have wrapped but there is no sleep for The Most Electrifying Man in [Sports] Entertainment.
In no less then 2 weeks The Rock, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black unite to begin working on what we now know is a Jumanji sequel, not a reboot. It is good to hear they will be keeping the liniage of what the late great Robin William’s did with the 1995 film.
Fast 8 opens on April 14 2017 while the Jumanji is slated for July 28th 2017.
