After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.

But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless  rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves. 

Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.   Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a script by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, the film is produced by Morgan, Johnson, Statham and Hiram Garcia. The executive producers are Kelly McCormick, Dany Garcia, Steven Chasman, Ethan Smith and Ainsley Davies.

Hobbs & Shaw hits theaters August 2, 2019.

UPDATE: Former WWE superstar and Dwayne Johnson’s real life cousin Roman Reigns has joined the cast!

Star Jason Statham also shared a first day photo on the set:

UPDATE: Jason Statham recently sat down with Collider and spoke a bit about ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ and what director David Leitch will bring to the table:

“I think Dave Leitch’s taste is a little more grounded and a little darker. If you see Atomic Blonde, and it is just superb, his taste is definitely in a world that is sort of how you described it. I think he’s looking to do something that doesn’t look exactly like a Fast movie. Although it’s the Fast characters, he’s trying to do his own thing with it and give it a real sense of credibility. I think Dave is going to get this one gritty, and real, and fucking hardcore.”

UPDATE: A villain has been found for ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ in veteran actor IDRIS ELBA (Thor: Ragnarok)!

‘The Rock’ welcomes Elba to the ‘Fast’ family via Instagram:

In addition to Elba, actress VANESSA KIRBY (Mission Impossible: Fallout) has also been cast as MI5 agent and sister of Statham’s ‘Shaw’.

There is no plot details at the moment so stay tuned.

UPDATE: ‘John Wick’s DAVID LEITCH (Deadpool 2) is in early talks to helm the upcoming ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ spin-off!

UPDATE: A release date has officially been set for the untitled spin-off for July 26, 2019! This will push the release date for ‘Fast & Furious 9’ to April 10, 2020.

Production on the spin-off is slated to start in Summer 2018 once Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s busy schedule is cleared. A search for a director will start once the script is completed.

Stay tuned for more details.

After the record shattering box office opening weekend of ‘The Fate And The Furious’ last weekend with DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON and JASON STATHAM arguably the highlight of the film, Universal Pictures is reportedly moving forward with a SPIN-OFF for the duo!

Series writer CHRIS MORGAN will pen the script that will see Johnson’s ‘Luke Hobbs’ forming an unlikely partnership with Statham’s ‘Decker Shaw’.

The plan is to put this project on the fast track for release even before ‘Fast 9’. Look out for CHARLIZE THERON’s potential involvement with the spin-off as well to reprise her role as ‘Cipher’.

  1. Wow, so this is the movie which caused a quarrel between Dwayne Johnson and Tyrese Gibson?
    I remember that Tyrese was angry because of Dwayne wanting to have a standalone movie with him on the poster only.
    Anyway, I think that it will be fun. Davit Leitch is a good action director so let’s cross fingers for an awesome movie.
