Dave Bautista On Doing A Fast & Furious Movie: "I'd Rather Do Good Films"

"I'd rather do good films."


Don't expect action movie actor Dave Bautista to join the Fast & Furious franchise anytime soon. The Guardians of the Galaxy and James Bond actor said on Twitter, probably jokingly to some extent, that he would "rather do good films."

His comment came in reply to someone on Twitter (via IndieWire) suggesting that Bautista would make for a good villain in a Fast & Furious spin-off starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and John Cena. The Rock has starred in recent entries of the series, while Cena will appear in Fast & Furious 9 (while Johnson will not). Of course, Bautista's replies were flooded with messages about "bad" movies that he made in the past.
