That title alone has Wrestlemania written all over it, but instead I’m talking about the fight scene that takes place in the upcoming Fast 5! Collider has a cool interview with producer Neal Moritz about his myriad of projects and things got really interesting when discussing the upcoming release of Fast 5 and specifically a fight between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson’s characters in the movie.
“They beat the shit out of each other, we shot for probably four days of them literally beating the shit out of each other. The audience is gonna be like ‘wow’.
“It was something that we had to conceive, obviously, then we had to work out how we’re actually gonna do the fight, then we had to bring the stunt guys in to rehearse it, then we had to bring Vin and Dwayne in to rehearse it and then we shot it and it goes up, down, through walls, through windows, it’s one hell of a fight. And it’s probably like a 5-minute fight.”
I’m sure Vince McMahon is somewhere squirming for not imagining this match up himself. Physical fights seem so out of place, for me, in this series but this news about the attention they paid toward this match-up has added something extra for me to look forward to in this movie aside from the usual car-porn. I really think Dwayne could become a leading action actor and I’m soo ready for this match-up, who else is ready?
