Dwayne Johnson has shared a great new photo from Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, the spin-off coming to theaters on August 2, 2019. The film features Johnson’s Luke Hobbs, Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw, and Idris Elba‘s international terrorist leader and criminal mastermind, Brixton. Johnson says:
“An exclusive lil’ taste of biggest showdown the summer has ever seen.
The Outlaw Lawman, HOBBS.
The International Spy, SHAW.
The Baddest Bad Guy the Fast & Furious franchise has ever had, BRIXTON.
We’re either gonna get along or we get it on.
F***ck gettin’ along, gettin’ it on is way more fun.
On a biz note, this film has been a fun one to produce and our ? audience is gonna have an absolute blast this summer.”
David Leitch (Deadpool 2) is directing the Fast & Furious spin-off, also starring Vanessa Kirby as an MI6 agent and Owen and Deckhard’s sister, Eiza González as Madam M, Eddie Marsan, and Ellie Nicole.
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.
