Dwayne Johnson keeps hinting at serious problems on the Fast & Furious 8 sets.

Actor Dwayne Johnson posted a dramatic video featuring him with his Fast and Furious ‘family’ on set, just hours after actor Vin Diesel was said to have “stormed off” from the shoot.

Johnson was front and centre for the dramatic video that he shared on his Instagram page, in which he was joined by several of his fellow actors in a prison fight scene, reports mirror.co.uk.

“My final week of shooting Fast and Furious. There’s no greatness ever achieved alone. It’s always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break-out for you guys and we delivered,” he captioned the video.

He also added: “You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of team effort. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company.”

My FINAL WEEK of shooting #FastAndFurious. There's no greatness ever achieved alone.. it's always a team effort. We promised an epic prison break out for you guys and we delivered. HUGE THANK YOU to my ohana (family) stunt coordinator JJ Perry and his bad ass fearless stunt team - as well as my cousin and incredible stunt double @samoanstuntman. Thank you team for the willingness to "die hard" and drop your blood & sweat daily for our movie. #MyStuntBrothers #Loco4Life You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of TEAM EFFORT. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team - that's a family - there's gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it. At the end of the day me and #F8 co-stars all agree on the most important thing: Delivering an incredible movie to the world. #Fast8 #IcemanCometh #FamilyGrowth

In the short video, none of The Rock’s main male co-stars like Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Scott Eastwood or Kurt Russell could be seen.

It was earlier reported that there wasn’t a “great resolution” after Diesel and The Rock reportedly spoke on Tuesday.

Less than 48 hours after The Rock’s rant about some of his male co-stars on the new Fast 8 movie, Diesel has reportedly wrapped his last scene and left the set.

The 49-year-old, who has been tied into the hit Fast and Furious franchise since its inception, allegedly stormed off set shortly after filming his final scene.

Following The Rock’s rant, it has been claimed it was aimed at Diesel and the two stars have now held a meeting to settle their differences.

The wrestling champion has angered his castmates by saying aside from working with Charlize Theron, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez and a great backroom staff, the experience he’s had making the movie genuinely makes his “blood boil”.

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
