Vin Diesel reportedly left the set of Fast 8 as soon as he was done filming, gathering everyone for a farewell as soon as the director called "cut".

The actor - who has been with the franchise since its first instalment - reportedly went to The Rock's trailer to sort their ongoing conflict but they did not reach a resolution, TMZ reports.

While Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has not publicly addressed the feud, he posted a video to Instagram on Thursday morning, which he captioned with comments about team work, family and putting the movie first.

It wasn't an apology, nor did it claim that everything had been sorted out, but rather stated that conflict happens, and at least they're finishing the movie.

He wrote: "You guys reading this know how much I believe in the idea of team effort. That means respecting every person, their time and their value when they step on to my set or partner with our production company. And like with any team - that's a family - there's gonna be conflict.

"Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it. And like any family, we get better from it. At the end of the day me and #F8 co-stars all agree on the most important thing: Delivering an incredible movie to the world."

The whole drama started when The Rock took to Facebook to call out his male cast mates, saying: "Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken s*** to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses."

TMZ later reported the post was made in reference to Diesel due to differences of opinion regarding production.
