Production for Fast and Furious Spinoff ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Starts in September

Posted by May 14, 2018 Comment

It’s almost surprising that it has taken this long for a spinoff movie from the Fast and Furious franchise to happen, but here we are. After teaming up in the last movie, Universal Pictures has decided to grant a spinoff to Hobbs, played by Dwayne Johnson, and former villain Shaw, played by Jason Statham. The movie picked up a director in David Leitch a month ago, and things seem to be moving along. Johnson posted to Instagram a picture of him, Leitch, and Statham and revealed not only the title, but also when production is starting.

HOBBS & SHAW. Lotta fun w/ my brothas @jasonstatham & director, @davidmleitch in our production meeting. Scroll left and see what happens when I whisper under my breath, “Smile for the camera you bald Harry Potter bitch!” And he says – Yeah clearly that extra small shirt is cutting off your brain circulation you big asshole. All while our phenomenal director keeps his poker face knowing he’s gonna have the time of his life directing our film. Been wanting to work with David for years now. Very talented and knows how to create and shoot bad ass, cool and FUN characters. He directed JOHN WICK, ATOMIC BLONDE and next week his new movie, DEADPOOL 2 looks to be huge with audiences worldwide. We have a lot of fun surprises in store with our movie and what an opportunity for us to smartly build out our beloved Fast and Furious franchise with our spinoff. We’re pumped to shoot and most importantly, THANK YOU FANS for all the love, support and excitement. Shooting starts this September! #HobbsAndShaw #DavidLeitch #ChrisMorgan #NealMoritz #HiramGarcia #SevenBucksProds #UniversalStudios

Not the most creative title in the world, but it gets the job done. The movie is set to start production this September and it has a release date of July 26th, 2019. The Fast and Furious series has made $5.1 billion in the worldwide box office and has been keeping the lights on at Universal Pictures since 2001. We should expect more as far as casting very soon.
