The Fast & the Furious franchise took a hit, some years back, when Vin Diesel and The Rock butted heads. While the reason behind the same is extremely vague, on various occasions, the two took potshots at each other. It got so bad that the duo even couldn't stand filming a scene together in The Fate of the Furious (2017). Eventually, Dwayne Johnson turned producer for a spin-off series titled Hobbs & Shaw, which would be focused on his character Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham's character, Deckard Shaw.

In a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, producer and writer of Hobbs & Shaw, Chris Morgan, was asked how the 'feud' between Vin and Dwayne had impacted the Fast & Furious franchise as a whole. To this, Chris stressed,  "I don't think there's a feud per se. I know there's a lot of reports and stories and stuff like that, but they're both nice, mature guys, and they're also businessmen. I don't think it has a major effect on the Fast franchise. The characters will continue to weave in and out."

Currently, The Rock is busy with the promotions of Hobbs & Shaw, which released in India today, i.e. August 2, 2019. Along with Dwayne and Jason, Hobbs & Shaw also stars Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, and Helen Mirren while Deadpool 2 fame David Leitch has helmed the movie.
