Well here’s some good new for you today Band it comes from The People’s Champion himself as Dwayne The Rock Johnson has officially confirmed that development is moving forward on a sequel to his Fast And Furious spin-off Hobbs And Shaw which partners him up with Jason Statham is officially in the works.
Johnson unveiled the news during a Instagram live Q&A session. During the session, Johnson mentioned that a sequel is definitely moving forward which isn’t a surprise as the first film has sped off with a global intake of $760.4 million.
“We are developing now the next film, the next Hobbs & Shaw movie, and I’m pretty excited about it.” Johnson said in the interview. He went on to say “just gotta figure out the creative right now, and the direction we’re going to go.”
Johnson also thanked the fans for making the film the success that it was and teased a new team heading forward that will hopefully include Ryan Reynolds hilarious CIA operative Agent Locke who stole every scene he was in as well as Helen Mirren who plays Statham’s mom in the movie Magdalene Shaw.
The first film was helmed by stunt maestro David Leitch and was a blast in terms of over the top action and buddy-buddy chemistry between the two stars. The film’s main antagonist, Eteon, was left a mystery and Leitch wanted it that way for future installments. There are rumors that Keanu Reeves was asked to play the role but that is a big if as Reeves is hot in demand with sequels to John Wick and Matrix in the works and the MCU is hot on his heels as well.
