Another Fast and Furious spinoff is being made by The Rock.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has announced that he will be producing and starring in another spinoff of the popular Fast and Furious franchise. This news comes after the success of the first spinoff, Hobbs and Shaw, which starred Johnson and Jason Statham.
The new spinoff will reportedly focus on Johnson’s character, Luke Hobbs, and his partner, Deckard Shaw, played by Statham. The two characters first appeared in the franchise in Fast Five and have since become fan favorites.
Johnson took to Instagram to share the news with his fans, saying, “We’re cooking up some big things for Hobbs and Shaw. We’re going to build out the Fast and Furious universe and create new characters that fans will love.”
The Fast and Furious franchise has been a huge success since the first film was released in 2001. The series has grossed over $5 billion worldwide and has become one of the most popular movie franchises of all time.
The success of Hobbs and Shaw has shown that there is still a lot of interest in the Fast and Furious universe, even without the original cast members like Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. The new spinoff will likely feature a mix of new and old characters, as well as plenty of high-speed action and intense stunts.
Johnson has become one of the biggest movie stars in the world in recent years, thanks in part to his roles in the Fast and Furious franchise. He has also starred in other blockbuster hits like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Rampage.
The actor has been vocal about his love for the Fast and Furious franchise and his desire to continue to expand the universe. In an interview with Collider, Johnson said, “I think there’s still a lot of room for growth and a lot of cool things we can do with the Fast and Furious franchise.”
The new spinoff is still in the early stages of development, so there is no word yet on when it will be released or who else will be involved. However, fans of the franchise can rest assured that there will be plenty of high-octane action and excitement to look forward to.
In addition to the new spinoff, there are also plans for at least two more Fast and Furious movies, which will bring the main franchise to a close. Vin Diesel has said that the final two films will be “one story split into two parts” and will be released in 2023 and 2024.
Overall, it’s clear that the Fast and Furious franchise is showing no signs of slowing down. With a new spinoff in the works and more movies on the horizon, fans can look forward to many more years of high-speed thrills and adrenaline-fueled action.
