A spin-off of the famous franchise “Fast and the Furious” is reportedly being
planned by Universal and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham will be
the stars of it.
This spin-off was thought to be made because of the union that happened
between Johnson and Statham’s characters in the latest Fast and the Furious
movie, and it will most probably arrive before Furious 9.
The upcoming movie starring The Rock and Statham is still in the development
stage, so the plot hasn’t been revealed yet, but it will be written by the Fate of
the Furious scribe, Chris Morgan. According to the Wrap, the spin-off was set to
be announced at the end of the latest Fast and the Furious movie via a scene
that would create the idea that Hobbs and Shaw (Dwayne and Jason’s
characters) will be working together again.
However, that scene did not make the cut, because Vin Diesel, the star of the
franchise, demanded for that scene to be removed.
Meanwhile, fans are wondering when could this movie with Johnson and Statham
come out, considering both actors have very busy schedules. Dwayne for
example has five movies to shoot for this year, so we’re not sure how he will
make time for another movie. It looks like we will have to wait and see.
