Trivia: A week before filming ended, Dwayne Johnson had a secret meeting with co-star and executive producer Vin Diesel to address personal and professional issues between the two. This happened after Diesel reportedly canceled some of Johnson's planned scenes at the last minute. On several occasions, Diesel also reportedly refused to show up to the set as he was scheduled, leaving hundreds of cast, crew & extras waiting on set for him for more than six hours. In response to this, Dwayne posted on Instagram: "This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. Universal has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling - you're right. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part. Final week on Fast 8 and I'll finish strong. ;/ #IcemanCometh#F8#ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses" Diesel confronted Johnson in a secret meeting, the day after Dwayne's message was posted online. However, they were not able to resolve their issues.
