Dwayne Johnson has teased at more surprises and great characters for the upcoming sequel to last year’s Hobbs & Shaw.
It’s no secret that the cast and crew of the Fast and Furious franchise is somewhat divided thanks in no small part to a feud between Dwayne Johnson and other cast members like Vin Diesel and Tyrese Gibson. Dwayne Johnson himself has made no secret of the fact that there is bad blood between him and other members of the cast. The exact reason behind this feud is unknown but Dwayne Johnson seems content to stay in his own section of the Fast and Furious franchise with co-star Jason Statham in the Hobbs & Shaw spinoff.
Recently Dwayne Johnson announced that a sequel to Hobbs & Shaw was in the works on an Instagram Live video but didn’t give away any details. In a more recent video, he gave away a few more details including the fact that Chris Morgan would be returning as the writer and teased at many surprises for the upcoming film and new characters that we will enjoy:
“Chris Morgan, of course, will write again, Seven Bucks Productions will produce again. We created a lot of great characters, from Vanessa Kirby’s character to Idris Elba, and Eiza Gonzalez. And now in this next installment we have a few more surprises and great characters to create. Not characters that Hobbs can just kick the shit out of, because that’s boring, but characters I think that you guys are gonna fall in love with. Villains, anti-heroes, and heroes all across the board.”

Was there a movie role I really wanted, but lost to another actor? Yup. The role was Jack Reacher. The actor was Tom Cruise. Business is business and I’m happy he got it. Universe works in funny ways though, as when that door shut on me, another door opened with the opportunity to create a character from scratch that was of my DNA. The one and only bad ass, shit talkin’, gravity and reality defying, always winkin’ and having fun OUTLAW LAWMAN KNOWN AS LUKE HOBBS. Let the good times roll ?? Thanks for all your great questions and enjoy your holiday weekend. Most importantly, stay healthy my friends. D

Here is the official synopsis for Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs and Shaw:
Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves. Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.
Directed by David Leitch from a script written by Chris Morgan, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, and Helen Mirren.
