Moreover, Dany Garcia revealed that the movie that Dwayne Johnson is working on is completely unique. She talked about how no one has made a movie like this before.

Dwayne Johnson may never revive his role in the Fast and Furious franchise

Even though the new movie The Rock is working on is going to have a similar feel to Hobbs & Shaw, Johnson may never revive the role of Luke Hobbs in the Fast and Furious franchise.

He left the franchise after doing a couple of movies. Reportedly, he had a fall out with lead actor Vin Diesel. Now, even though Diesel took to social media to ask Johnson to revive the role for the tenth film of the series, The Rock found that manipulative.

It was one of the iconic roles The Rock took in during his Hollywood career. Undoubtedly, he could have made the tenth film something considerably bigger since John Cena is also a part of the franchise now.

If all goes well, The Rock could make a WWE return in 2022, even if it’s for one PPV.
