Hobbs and Shaw (The Rock / Statham / Elba) (July 26, 2019)

Johnson Trying to Woo ‘Furious’ Cast Members to Hobbs Spinoff
I love that the behind-the-scenes melodrama of the Fast & Furious franchise is rivaling the on-screen drama of the movies. During production on The Fate of the Furious, we learned that star Vin Diesel and co-star Dwayne Johnson, had a falling out to the point where they wouldn’t even share the same frame.

Then, when news broke of Fast & Furious 9 being delayed to 2020 to make room for the Hobbs & Shaw spinoff starring Johnson and Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson got in on the action by lashing out at Johnson on Instagram. Diesel, never one to keep quiet, piped up on social media saying that the franchise needed “maintenance” and that he would stay positive.


Now the latest development is Johnson taking to Instagram to promote the Hobbs/Shaw spinoff, writing:

Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neil Moritz.
 
Thank you UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for being tremendous partners who see the big picture and for coming to us years ago with this spinoff idea. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans.
 
I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool.
I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans.
Smart business.

 
Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum.

He then added in the hashtags, “#CandyAssesNeedNotApply”. It’s clear that the Fast & Furious franchise has completely split with the spinoff not being a spinoff so much as it’s a lifeboat. It’s clear there was no way Johnson would do another movie with Diesel, and Universal didn’t want to lose Johnson. The solution was to simply give Johnson (and Statham) their own series, and now Johnson is using that as an open door to say that any other Fast & Furious actors who want to join him are more than welcome to do so.

So Diesel will keep moving forward with the Fast & Furious franchise, and Johnson gets a new franchise that he’ll lead with Statham. It should be interesting to see who comes out on top.

The Hobbs/Shaw spinoff opens July 26, 2019. Fast & Furious 9 opens April 10, 2020.

I had read Tyrese was bitching about this and saying it's because The Rock is selfish Fast and Furious 9 is being pushed back a year to 2020 when it was aimed to be released in 2019.

I like Hobbs vs Shaw. They had good chemistry and should make for a fun buddy-cop-type actionfest.

The Rock doesn't get along with Diesel or Tyrese anymore, so who do you think the studio is going to cave to? Razz

Diesel and Tyrese, their shitty careers are over.

Diesel will end up washing Rock's car if he don't make amends and he knows it so he's kissing the royal ass.

I recently read some nasty shit about Tyrese and the treatment of his little girl and I thought he was a POS before...

Idris Elba in Villainous Talks for 'Hobbs and Shaw'
Idris Elba is in final negotiations to play the main villain in “Hobbs and Shaw,” the “Fast and Furious” spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

“Deadpool 2” director David Leitch is on board to helm, with Johnson and Statham reprising their roles as special agent Luke Hobbs and criminal mastermind Deckard Shaw, respectively. “Fast and Furious” architect Chris Morgan penned the script, with production set to commence this fall.

The film will see the often-at-odds pair teaming up. Sources say Elba’s character is the antagonist the duo will go up against.

Since his arrival in the franchise’s fifth installment, Universal has tried to find a way to spin off Johnson’s Hobbs character, given his popularity with fans. Statham joined the series in the seventh movie, and considering the chemistry between the two actors in 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious,” Universal took action on plans to develop a spinoff. It hits theaters on July 26, 2019.

Elba’s no stranger to playing the baddie in popular tentpoles. He previously appeared as the villain in “Star Trek Beyond,” in addition to voicing the famous Shere Khan in Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book.”

He’s coming off a busy 2017 that included “The Dark Tower,” “Molly’s Game,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” and “The Mountain Between Us.” He most recently helmed the Sundance pic “Yardie.” Elba is currently in production on the Netflix comedy series “Turn Up Charlie,” which he created, and will topline and executive produce.

‘The Crown’s’ Vanessa Kirby Joins 'Hobbs'
With her reign as Princess Margaret on Netflix’s acclaimed series “The Crown” officially over, Vanessa Kirby is taking her talents to the big screen. The British actress is in final negotiations to star opposite Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in “Fast and Furious” spinoff, “Hobbs and Shaw.”

Kirby will play an MI-5 agent and Shaw’s sister.

Kirby, who received rave reviews that led to a BAFTA win for her role as the troubled sibling to Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s “The Crown,” appears next in “Mission: Impossible – Fallout.” She can also be seen in “Gareth Jones” opposite Peter Sarsgaard. Kirby is currently on stage performing in National Theatre’s “Julie” in London.
