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) will play Madam M in the anticipated film.
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.
