Fast & Furious star Tyrese Gibson, who plays Roman, has been in the headlines recently after criticising Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson for pursuing a spinoff film about his character Hobbs, and now he has clarified his thoughts in an interview with TMZ, saying that not all is as it appears:
"I don't know what they're doing. Everybody coming at me like I'm hating on Dwayne about his spinoff, but I'm not. The truth is, I just wish he was releasing it at a different time. It's not a conflict, it's just The Fast and the Furious is like a holiday. The Fast and the Furious family, the fans, the tribe, the people that's been rocking with us for 16 years, you know, pushing our release date back... it's only happened one time in the history of the Fast and the Furious franchise, is when we lost our brother, Paul Walker. So, what's the reason we're pushing the release date back now? So, you know, I just got a problem with Dwayne; it appears he's being selfish. It appears that he's so focused on furthering his own self-interest, he's making decisions from the seat he's sitting on. Fast and Furious 9 is not coming out until 2020... it's f***** up."
Are you a fan of the franchise, and are you looking forward to a spinoff?
