Tyrese Gibson wants Dwayne Johnson to keep it in the family.
The Fast & Furious actor went off on his co-star in a since-deleted Instagram comment on a post of Johnson’s, where Johnson appears to be signing a contract, imploring him not to let a rumored spinoff film starring Johnson’s character, Agent Hobbs, push back the planned release date of Fast 9.
“I’m simply trying to reach him cause he won’t call me back about this solo #HobbsMovie,” Gibson wrote in the lengthy comment. “I want you to shoot it just not right now cause the #Fast9 release date has already been announced.”
“Didn’t you see how HUGE #Fast8 was?? It’s because we announced and KEPT our release date bro,” the 38-year-old actor added. “We can’t let our loyal fans #FastFamily or our loyal ‘Fast & Furious’ FANS down on any level from pushing the date.”
“I apologize for being loyal but damn it I am,” Gibson ended the post.
