Hobbs and Shaw - The Rock and Jason Statham Fast and Furious Spin-Off

Now the latest development is Johnson taking to Instagram to promote the Hobbs/Shaw spinoff, writing:
Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neil Moritz.

Thank you UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for being tremendous partners who see the big picture and for coming to us years ago with this spinoff idea. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans.

I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool.
I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans.
Smart business.

Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum.


It’s clear that the Fast & Furious franchise has completely split with the spinoff not being a spinoff so much as it’s a lifeboat. It’s clear there was no way Johnson would do another movie with Diesel, and Universal didn’t want to lose Johnson. The solution was to simply give Johnson (and Statham) their own series, and now Johnson is using that as an open door to say that any other Fast & Furious actors who want to join him are more than welcome to do so.

The Rock's Fast and Furious Spin-Off

I've heard a lot of stories about Vin and The Rock being amazing guys, but for whatever reason they do not get along. I'm not sure who is at fault, but I think The Rock's ego might be getting too big for his head. Let's not forget his rage Tweeting over the summer when Baywatch flopped

Just cancel the Oscars that year because this movie wins everything.

Dwayne Johnson shares a new photo of Vanessa Kirby and himself on the London set of 'Hobbs and Shaw'. Kirby plays an MI6 operative and a sister to Jason Statham's Deckard.

Is it because it reminds you of how you'll never be as cool as the people in this movie?

Just watched. This continues to prove my theory that these movies are turning into super hero stories. Idris Elba is BULLET PROOF in this. What the heck?!

Didn't these 2 characters work out their differences in the last movie? I thought they became friends, thus the reason people wanted this movie. I don't need them to be hating each other anymore than Chris Tucker and Chan do in Rush Hour
