Rock Vin Diesel

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has officially wrapped filming on Fast 8. The actor marked the moment of departure with an Instagram post thanking his co-stars as well as director F. Gary Gray:

Finished strong and on to the next. That's an officially wrap on #FastAndFurious8. Thank you to our director @fgarygray for the vision and execution. Thank you UNIVERSAL for being tremendous partners as always, thank you to all my fellow co-stars for the daily effort and grind. Scott Eastwood you handsome sumbitch! Natalie Emmanuel I have a cold Budweiser ready for you and Tyrese Gibson you still have the biggest smile and forehead I've ever seen.😂 And a huge THANK YOU to our hard working production crew - the backbone of our business. Your kind words meant a lot to me last night - thank you! In the end, we all rallied, as great teams do, kicked ass and will deliver an amazing movie to the world. Proud of our entire FAST FAMILY. And now in two weeks I'll reunite with ol' friends Kevin Hart & Jack Black and we have the honor to introduce a whole new generation to the amazing world of #JUMANJI. *(for the record we are NOT making a reboot, but rather a continuation of the awesome JUMANJI story). It's also crazy to me how much me, Kev and Jack look like triplets when we're together. 👶🏽👶🏻👶🏿. Man this is gonna be FUN. #WheelsUp #ThatsAWrap #FromFastAndFurious #StraightIntoJumanji #BigBrownBaldTattooedMan #DarkChocolateComedicRockStar #BrillaintCrazyCurvyCaucasion #TheseHashtagsAreRidiculous #INeedSleepAndCARBS #ButIWillSettleForTequila

Fans will notice that, in addition to general nods to "the entire Fast family," Johnson mentioned a few co-stars by name, calling out Scott Eastwood, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Tyrese Gibson. Notably absent from that roll call was franchise lead Vin Diesel, whom Johnson butted heads with during filming, escalating until the feud went public. There are plenty of other names from Fast 8's ensemble cast that didn't make it into Johnson's post, but Diesel's is the biggest. Some are sure to interpret this as a passive-aggressive snub and a silent last word on their tense work relationship.

Johnson will next join Jack Black and Kevin Hart in filming the new Jumanji, which he pointedly notes is not a reboot, but a continuation of the original film's story.
