The tension escalates when Diesel shows up on April 23 with additional notes. Lively verbal exchanges ensued which ended in a separation. In an official statement, he announces his departure.
He seems to have had enough of the franchise star’s lack of professionalism. “Diesel arrives late on set. He doesn’t know his lines and he shows himself out of shape.” reveals a source close to the director.
