Eiza González Plays Madam M in Hobbs & Shaw


While her casting was previously revealed, Dwayne Johnson has shared a new photo with Eiza González (Baby Driver) from the set of Universal Pictures’ Hobbs and Shaw. In the caption, he announces that the actress is playing Madam M:

“T.R.O.U.B.L.E. On set of HOBBS & SHAW with Eiza González as she brings her character “Madam M” to life. And by “brings her character to life” I mean she walked on set and slapped the sh*t outta Jason Statham. Kidding. But I’d pay handsomely with my cheat meal cookies to see that slap. Been very cool to create new characters that audiences are gonna love as we build out our FAST & FURIOUS UNIVERSE. Fun stuff. Welcome “Madam M” to our franchise. We’ve been waiting for her and her squad of bad ass female force multipliers. #HobbsAndShaw #FemaleForceMultipliers SUMMER 2019”

David Leitch (Deadpool 2) is directing the Fast & Furious spin-off. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will face Idris Elba (Thor: RagnarokThe Mountain Between UsLuther) with the help of The Crown star Vanessa Kirby, who will play an agent and the sister of Statham’s Shaw.

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.
