"He was like, 'We're so proud, blah blah blah, why didn't you call me for this?'" Chu recalls.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson seems to want to get in on the worldwide phenomenon that is "Crazy Rich Asians."
During the 2019 SAG Awards red carpet Sunday night, the film's director, Jon Chu, said that the actor was angry that he wasn't asked to be in the 2018 romantic comedy.
"The Rock did call me -- he was mad that I didn't call him for this one," Chu told Access Hollywood. "He was like, 'We're so proud, blah blah blah, why didn't you call me for this?'"
"So next time, we'll see," Chu added.
Johnson, who is of Samoan descent on his mother's side, worked with Chu in 2013's "G.I. Joe: Retaliation."
Although the "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" star voiced that he wants to join in on the cast, "Crazy Rich Asians" actor Ronnie Chiang didn't seem to be on board with the idea.
"The Rock is in like every single movie," Chiang joked. "Hey Dwayne, take a seat for one movie. Can you do that, for one movie? Every time I turn on the TV, you're in every fricken thing. Can you give us our one thing?"
Chiang even called out the professional wrestler, "Yeah Rock hey if you're not happy about that, come look for me alright? You got my Twitter, you got my Instagram. Anytime -- let's go rumble."
The "Crazy Rich Asians" sequel, "China Rich Girlfriend" hasn't officially been announced by Warner Brothers yet. However, Chu will reportedly be returning for the second installment, sources told The Hollywood Reporter back in August. The film is also already on Chu's IMDb page.
Due to the fact that "Crazy Rich Asians" made over $238.4 million in the box office and set new cultural milestones, we'd be shocked if a sequel didn't happen. We'd even wager our grandmother's emerald ring.
