According to reports, Universal has delayed the release of the ninth film in the Fast and Furious franchise from April 19, 2019 to April 10, 2020.

This presumably also has a knock-on for the previously-announced Fast & Furious 10, which had been due in 2021.

Tyrese Gibson took to Instagram today to slam his co-star, Dwayne Johnson, and accuse him of holding up the next installment of the franchise. #NoShaw just Hobbs will this be another #BayWatch?

Unlike you, though, Gibson is willing to publicly call out Dwayne Johnson over it.

More than 50 people have been confirmed dead and 200 injured in the shooting, making it the deadliest in United States history. This latest shooting appears to be the case again as U.S. authorities have ruled out the group's involvement.

The series' most successful installment was the 2015 film Furious 7, which featured Paul Walker's final appearance and brought in $1.5 billion.

Apparently Johnson's success and career decisions are not sitting well with Gibson, who came aboard the franchise with the 2003 sequel 2 Fast, 2 Furious, and took a couple films off before rejoining it again with Fast Five. "Guys guys just relax I'm just a passionate film critic", he joked, hinting that the Hobbs character will be completely solo in the spin-off, despite having fun chemistry with Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw.

More on the movie as we hear it. So it makes flawless sense why the studio wants to make sure the ninth film is just as mind blowing as the movies preceding it.

With the hashtag #PSA to start his post, Tyrese congratulated Johnson and Hiram Garcia - one of the producing partners of Johnson's Seven Bucks Production company - for "making the fast and the furious franchise about YOU". Get a job, kids, because I think we might be headed toward a divorce. And like you, DJ, even if they call, I will not be deleting this post.
