Vin Diesel’s alleged unprofessionalism might have hindered the production of Furious 7

According to reports, during the filming of the 7th installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, there were reports sharing the spotlight on Vin Diesel‘s alleged unprofessionalism on the sets of the movie. Considering that the morale of the whole team was already low due to the fateful incident, Diesel being late and disrupting the filming process was adding extra baggage to everyone’s shoulders. One insider claimed,

“Vin spent a whole day in his trailer one day. The next day, they waited four hours for him. He called a meeting [May 28] of studio execs to his trailer for two-and-a-half hours to say, ‘What the f— am I doing here?’

However, these allegations were eventually brushed off by Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley, as she claimed that, “The crew and cast, led by Vin, have been nothing but terrific under these circumstances”. Although the concerns regarding Diesel’s behavior onset weren’t exclusive to this particular situation, as he has been repeatedly accused of being unprofessional over the years.
