That's a tale as old as time in Hollywood. Big stars have all kinds of clauses in their contracts to protect their brand image and ego. Even affects what you would assume to be minor stuff like posters. My personal favourite is from back in the 70's, where both Steve McQueen and Paul Newman share top billing for The Towering Inferno. McQueen's name is first, but Newman's is raised slightly higher. So if you read from left to right or top to bottom, a different person has 'top billing'. Stupid, pathetic but pretty funny.

Even Newman's image is raised slightly higher.

That's actually really clever design.

I won't deny that in terms of it being a neat workaround, but the reason for it being there in the first place I find ridiculous.

Bet he was delighted when the Rock went off and did his own one rather than this.


I'm pretty sure they all fell out about the spin off. The Rock fell out majorly with someone(I think Tyrese) who in turn was clapping back at him on Instagram. Allegedly The Rock was supposed to be in 9, but will be back for 10.

It's so pathetic. Everything that seems to come out about the cast just showcases the fragility of everybody's ego. I kind of love it though, it's great drama. :lol:

I think they were also pissed off because Hobbs & Shaw pushed this new FF release back a year. So much strawberry floating egos involved.

I forgot about the Tyrese thing and the instagram posts :lol:

Who falls out with The Rock?

He's even friends with his ex-wife's new husband.

I'm sure he was genuinely crying at one point in a video too.

10 is going to be the last one (or so they say). I'd imagine they will bring back everyone they possibly can. I'm also expecting part of it to be set in space.

The big question is... What will Fast and Furious 10 be called?

Furious til the End

Fast Faster Fastest

I'm Curious why he's so Furious

12 Angry Men in 10 Angry Cars

Fast X.

Similar to Jason X. It's definitely going to be in space and I am hyped.

Is this the one when Diesel and Rock finally give in to their urges?
