ICYMI: New Details About 'Fast & Furious' Spinoff Revealed!
and Furious spinoff film starring The Rockand Jason Statham as their characters Hobbs and
Shaw is to be titled, well, Hobbs and Shaw. Recently added
to the cast has been “The Crown” star Vanessa
Kirby, who will play an MI-5 agent who is also
Shaw’s sister. Fans of the series know that the last threeFast movies have included appearances from Statham’s
Deckard Shaw character’s family, which actually began withLuke Evans playing
villain Owen Shaw in Fast and Furious 6. Expect a Brady
Bunch situation to introduce more family in later installments as
Hobbs and Shaw leave every scene together about ten seconds away
from making out.
Next joining the cast this week is none other than Idris Elba. Who doesn’t like that guy? Making the stakes of his arrival into the movie even better is that he will play the villain, so that’ll be quite sight to see as he goes toe-to-toe with The Rock and Statham. It’s the match-up I never knew I needed and now can’t imagine living without it, even though there is next to nothing revealed about his character at this time.
Hobbs and Shaw will be helmed by Deadpool 2 directorDavid Leitch and is written by Chris Morgan, who has written every movie in the franchise from the third one on. Hobbs and Shaw will be released in theaters a few weeks more than a year from now on July 26, 2019.
