For all the propulsive and physics-defying feats of Fast Furious Franchise, the gargantuan endeavor of suppressing the seething egos of its stars is perhaps the most impressive. #CandyAssGate, the ongoing quarrel Come in Vin Diesel et Dwayne « The Rock » Johnson, has been the stuff of legend ever since the Rock called Alex Cage himself an “ass candy” on Instagram. But, at “no Fellinisque“Vin Diesel, it was his ‘hard love’ approach to producing that got The Rock’s performance ‘where it needed to be’, so maybe The Rock should thank him?
In a profile with Men’s health, through IndieWire, Stanislavskian Method model Vin Diesel says he had to get in and out of Hobbs of the Rock for the franchise. Judging by the sounds, he has no regrets.
“He was a difficult character to play, the character of Hobbs,” Vin Diesel said. “My approach back then was a lot of hard love to help get this performance where it needed to be. As a producer he has to say, “Okay, we’re going to take Dwayne Johnson, who’s associated with wrestling, and we’re going to force this cinematic world, the viewers, to see his character as someone they don’t. do not know. ”
Luke Hobbs, of course, is a U.S. Diplomatic Security Service agent looking for Dominic Toretto, Diesel’s Robin Hood street racer. And the character that Diesel had to exorcise from Johnson’s core was that of a “big boy with big arms who could beat Vin Diesel.” but not beat him too much. The proof is in the pudding as it beats it up pretty well in some of these movies. While that’s a pretty dismissive way of talking about The Rock, who in 2011 had already been acting for a decade by the time he moved to Casa de Diesel (not to mention a lifetime of cutting out some of the best wrestling promos in the world. sector). It wasn’t good enough for Diesel, who goes out of his way to verify the name Federico Fellini while discussing his production process, which says everything you need to know how confident this guy is.
“Hobbs hits you like a ton of bricks,” he said. “It’s something I’m proud of, this aesthetic. It took a lot of work. We had to make it happen and sometimes at that point I could give a lot of hard love. Not feliniesque, but I would do whatever I had to do to get performance in anything I produce.
Strangely enough, almost anyone on Earth would describe the seething tension between Hobbs and Torreto as Felliniesque, a mixture of baroque and dreamlike imagery that transcends the boundaries of mainstream cinema. But apparently having the same number of hits as Vin wasn’t enough to force The Rock to appear in the last main line. F&F movie. Or, maybe, just maybe, he’s waiting for Vin to call him and goad him again; get it where it needs to be, that sort of thing.
