The Fast & Furious franchise has obviously not finished making headlines. We already knew that the next film would not be the last. A 100% female spin-off is also on the agenda behind the wheel. But we now learn that the spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, after a first episode which received a very good reception from the public, will have the right to a sequel which is now in development.
Hobbs & Shaw, a logical continuation
It was Dwayne Johnson who announced the information that was already in the air and above all proves to be particularly logical. The actor, a former wrestling star who lends his features to the character of Luke Hobbs, re-stacks up alongside Deckard Shaw, the character played by Jason Statham.
We are in the process of developing the next film, the next Hobbs & Shaw, and I’m very excited about that. Now we just have to approach the creative part, establish the direction we are going to take
Dwayne Johnson said on Instagram in a question and answer session with his fans. The first film had grossed more than $ 760 million worldwide. In other words, a real gold mine that only asks to be exploited a little more even if the critics were a little less enthusiastic about the result. Above all, the result should not appear too “forced” since the end of the first film clearly left the door open to a sequel, both on the side of threats than the rivalry between the two characters.
Of course, to discover this new opus from Hobbs & Shaw, you will have to be patient. Particularly because the ninth installment of Fast & Furious has already been postponed by a year, to March 31, 2021. However, neither Jason Statham nor Dwayne Johnson will appear in this film.
