A Big Actor is Rumored To Have a Surprise Role in Dwayne Johnson's HOBBS & SHAW
Apparently there’s a big name actor that has a surprise role in Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s Hobbs & Shaw. If there is any truth to this rumor, it would be a pretty big spoiler so before I go on, I’m going to throw up one of these!
According to a report from That Hashtag Show, there’s going to be a villain behind the curtain that is pulling the strings. Yes, we all know that Idris Elba’s Brixton will be kicking ass on camera through most of the movie, but there is said to be a mastermind villain that will be revealed, and that mastermind will be played by Keanu Reeves!
"Like Cipher before, there will be a new background baddie pulling the strings for the new, odd couple offset from the main franchise. That villain will be none other than Keanu Reeves."
Well, that would be completely awesome if it actually turns out to be true! There are no other details given about Reeves’ character, but I can’t wait to find out more when I see the movie.
Director David Leitch has worked with Reeves on the John Wick franchise, so it doesn’t surprise me that he would want to bring Reeves into the franchise in some way like this.
What do you all think about Reeves possibly being a villain in this franchise?
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.
The script for the film was written by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, the film will be released on August 2nd, 2019!
