The cast for the Fast and Furious spinoff movie continues to grow. A few days ago a report surfaced that Vanessa Kirby was in final talks to join the cast, and today Variety is reporting that Idris Elba is in final talks to join the cast as the villain.
At the moment we don’t know anything about this movie aside from the fact that it’ll have the two characters played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham teaming up. Johnson has become a major talent since joining the series and rumors of a feud between Johnson and Vin Diesel means Universal Pictures is looking for a way to keep both men happy.
Production for Hobbs and Shaw is set to start production this September, it’ll be directed by David Leitch, 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.
