April 4, 2018: Here We Go Again?
Dwayne opened up about his rivalry with Vin again in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. While Dwayne said he still wasn't sure if he was returning for the ninth installment of Fast and the Furious, he did confirm that his feud with Vin was real. "We were not in any scenes together [in The Fate of the Furious]. Vin and I had a few discussions including an important face-to-face in my trailer. What I came to realize is that we have a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach movie-making and collaborating. It took me some time, but I'm grateful for that clarity. Whether we work together again or not. Right now, I'm concentrating on making the [Hobbs and Shaw] spinoff as good as it can be, but I wish him all the best and I harbor no ill will there just because of the clarity we have. Actually, you can erase that last part about no ill will. We'll just keep it with the clarity."
