Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram last night to share a photo of a Hobbs and Shaw action scene he was shooting in London with Vanessa Kirby. You can view his post talking about the Hobbs and Shaw action scene below!
David Leitch (Deadpool 2) is directing the Fast & Furious spin-off. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will face Idris Elba (Thor: Ragnarok, The Mountain Between Us, Luther) with the help of The Crown star Vanessa Kirby, who will play an agent and the sister of Statham’s Shaw. Eiza González (Baby Driver) was also cast in the movie this week, but it is unknown who she is playing.

On set. HOBBS & SHAW. They always play hard to catch. The ever chivalrous, Hobbs told Hattie Shaw (MI6 operative and overall bad ass played by my homegirl @vanessa__kirby) we can do this dance one of two ways/ We’ll share some tequila ? and then you’re under arrest and I’m takin’ you in. or.. I’m takin’ you in. Apparently, she felt the tequila would have to wait. For the record, we closed down the streets of London to shoot this massive action sequence and on the first take my girl Kirbs here takes off like the second coming of Usain Bolt… WHILE WEARING NO SHOES ?????? #TheHobbsHattieDance #HobbsAndShaw SUMMER 2019 ? @hhgarcia41
Chris Morgan wrote the script for the action film. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are producing alongside Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz, Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions partners Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia, and eponymous’ Chris Morgan. Kelly McCormick, Steve Chasman, Amanda Lewis, Ainsley Davies and Ethan Smith are executive producing.
The last Fast & Furious movie featuring both Hobbs and Shaw, The Fate of the Furious, earned $1.236 billion at the worldwide box office last year. Hobbs and Shaw is scheduled for an August 2, 2019 release.
