New HOBBS AND SHAW Photo Features Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, and Idris Elba Looking Like Badasses
Dwayne Johnson has shared a new photo from the Fast and Furious spinoff film, Hobbs and Shaw. The image features Johnson alongside his two co-stars Jason Statham and Idris Elba, and they’re looking pretty badass.
In the film, Hobbs and Shaw will team up to take down Elba’s character, Brixton, who is said to be “the baddest villain the franchise has ever seen.” Johnson is also looking to get fans hyped with his comments that came along with the photo.

When previously talking about what we can expect from the movie, director David Leitch (Deadpool 2) teased:
“We’re going to go on an exciting ride with these two beloved characters of the franchise who were always at odds. I think of the classics like Lethal Weapon or 48 Hrs, or some of these ’80s and ’90s buddy-cop comedies – that dynamic was fostered in the original [Fast] franchise, we’re going to take it and expand the whole world around it.”
He went on to explain, “We’re going to learn about Hobbs’ past and his connections and his family, and we’re going to learn more about Shaw and his world.” We’ve been told that the movie will have the tone of the Fast and Furious films, but that it will also be its own thing:
“We wanted to make sure that we can make a movie that sat comfortably in the Fast world, but was distinctly its own. And I think we’re on the road to doing it… Our guys aren’t street racers. They’re from the agency world, and we’re building up their world so we can diversify the action and have fun in all different ways.”
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is written by Chris Morgan and other stars include Vanessa Kirby and Eddie Marsan. The current release date for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is August 2, 2019.
