We got some Fast & Furious news earlier today, and now Dwayne Johnson has shared also a new photo from the set of 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 the following about the new Hobbs & Shaw photo:
“This sacred Samoan ground you stand on is nourished with our ancestors blood.
Tonight, we nourish it with yours.
Here’s a lil’ exclusive from set of HOBBS & SHAW, our FAST & FURIOUS spin off film coming this summer.
I’ve been waiting for this my entire career.
This is more than a movie to me – our culture & warrior mana is very real.
More to come.
Now they bleed.”
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.
