Hobbs And Shaw: David Leitch Confirmed To Direct Fast And Furious Spinoff


Entertainment Weekly exclusively reported that David Leitch has been confirmed to direct the Fast and Furious spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw.

 

Since he was introduced to audiences in the fifth installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, Universal has been eyeing a spinoff for Dwayne Johnson’s character Luke Hobbs for years now and due to the reaction of his chemistry with Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw, particularly in the last installment Fate of the Furious (number eight), has caused the studio to pull the trigger and create this spinoff that’ll see the two of them team up somehow. Actual plot details are vague at the moment but we do know that Chris Morgan, who has been on board the franchise since the Tokyo Drift entry, is penning the script.

With the Fast & Furious verified twitter page confirming EW’s report, the news comes a few months after it was reported that Leitch was the frontrunner to direct the Hobbs and Shaw spinoff film. I for one am very excited to see how Leitch will direct the action sequences involving Dwayne Johnson and in particular Jason Statham.
