Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is one of the most well-known and loved actors in all of Hollywood.

He has certainly nurtured a reputation as one of the most hard-working stars on the planet, with his resume pretty impressive.

Red One, is set to release in November 2024 – but it appears all is not well.

Originally slated for release during the 2023 Christmas season, the film maker’s put down the delay to last year’s labor strikes.

But the real story is a lot messier,

Insiders have told the outlet that Johnson showed up as much as eight hours late to set on the movie, essentially forcing the crew to shoot around him.

This allegedly led to the actor causing $50 million of costs.

However, in a statement provided to The Wrap, a spokesperson for Amazon MGM has denied there has been any problems with Red One or any delays caused by Johnson’s lateness.

“Dwayne Johnson and Seven Bucks have been incredible partners on Red One – a film that audiences of all ages are going to love this holiday season,” the spokesperson said.

“Our testing has been very strong – the reaction from CinemaCon speaks for itself – and we couldn’t have made it without Dwayne’s constant work and support.

“Any reporting that implies that we got to this point with him showing up seven-eight hours late to set is both ridiculous and false.”

Whether there is a feud or not, fans will be hoping the pair can patch things up fairly soon.
