Fast and Furious

The Fast & Furious Spin-Off, “Hobbs and Shaw,” Has Officially Started Filming

Whether you’re a fan of the Fast & Furious franchise or not, the series has grossed over $3.9 billion at the worldwide box office, so it should come as no surprise that Universal Pictures greenlit two more Fast & Furious sequels, set to hit theatres in 2020 and 2021.

In addition to the two unnamed sequels, a Hobbs & Shaw spin-off, starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, was also planned and began shooting today. At this point, all we know is that Johnson and Statham are on board and will reprise their roles from the Fast & Furious series. Word is both Idris Elba and Vanessa Kirby are also on board, but not much else has been said.

Fresh off directing Deadpool 2, David Leitch was brought on board to bring Chris Morgan’s Hobbs and Shaw screenplay to life! With films like John Wick, John Wick: Chapter 2, and Atomic Blonde under his belt, we’re confident that Leitch is the right man for the job and can’t wait to see what he has planned.

Hobbs and Shaw crashes in theatres on August 2, 2019.
