Screen Rant reports that Dwayne Johnson/ Jason Statham’s spin-off film of The Fast and The Furious franchising Hobbs & Shaw is getting a sequel. Which is no surprise considering the film made over 760 million at the global box office las summer, it was only a matter of time before Universal gave the green light the sequel.
In an Instagram Live Q&A, The Rock confirmed that amidst his already busy upcoming schedule, it could soon be further occupied with another installment in the already well-received spin-off series.
“We are developing now the next film, the next [Hobbs & Shaw] movie, and I’m pretty excited about it…Just gotta figure out the creative right now, and the direction we’re going to go,” Johnson said.
After positive reviews and large box office gross, it was expected fans would be seeing another chapter of the action hit and with screenwriter Chris Morgan and director David Leitch leaving multiple threads for the possible future, including the identity of Idris Elba’s Brixton’s boss, audiences were left with reasons to come back. Leitch and Morgan reportedly wanted Keanu Reeves (John Wick) for the role of Eteon corporation, so should a script be done in time for a gap in Reeves’ scheduling between the next John Wick and Matrix films, fans could look forward to an against-type character for the revitalized action hero.
