Fast & Furious present: Hobbs and Shaw is a spin-off from the Fast & Furious franchise which previously announced by Vin Diesel in November 2015 in an interview with Variety.
Universal Pictures announced a spin-off film centered around characters Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in October 2017 and set a release date of July 26, 2019.
The Fast and the Furious franchise centered around the nominal Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw, characters portrayed by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham – they both reprise their roles as unlikely allies who are forced to team up against a greater threat.
Hulking lawman Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Jason Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo has 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 Hattie Shaw (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 worse than themselves.
Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast and furious 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.
Fast and Furious Present: Hobbs and Shaw are directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2 and Atomic Blonde) from a story by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan and a screenplay by Morgan and Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation, Iron Man 3), the film is produced by Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Morgan and Hiram Garcia.
Executive producers are Dany Garcia, Kelly McCormick, Ethan Smith, Ainsley Davies, and Steven Chasman.
Casts: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Helen Mirren
