The upcoming Fast and the Furious sspinoff starring Dwayne Johnson as Agent Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham as the anti-hero Deckard Shaw is set for an August 2019 release
After keeping fans on the tenterhooks for the past year or so, a first-look image from 'Hobbs & Shaw' has finally been dropped online. The upcoming Fast and the Furious sequel, starring Dwayne Johnson's Agent Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham's anti-hero Deckard Shaw is set for an August 2019 release. Check out the 'Hobbs & Shaw' first-glimpse below.
"FIRST LOOK: HOBBS & SHAW," the former wrestler-turned-Hollywood actor wrote alongside the black-and-white photo, teasing an explosive look at the pair, whose relationship dynamics still remain under the wraps.
"We either gonna get along or we gonna get it on. Fuck getting along 😈 Great first week of shooting our Fast & Furious spin-off, “HOBBS & SHAW” with my ace @jasonstatham. We’re havin’ a blast disrupting the norm to deliver something fresh, cool, fun and bad ass for the fans (sic)," Johnson added.
He also threw in a bunch of suggestive hashtags for good measure. "#TheOutlawLawman #TheInternationalSpy #HobbsAndShaw SUMMER 2019 @universalpictures @davidmleitch."
Indeed, the image is quite telling as far as Hobbs and Shaw's sometimes friendly and sometimes antagonistic chemistry is concerned. Interestingly, the reel-life drama surrounding these popular 'Fast and the Furious' characters has found its way into their off-screen dynamics as well. Production on the spinoff has taken off amidst much chaos after the alleged feud between Johnson and his Fast 8 co-star Vin Diesel.
Regardless of the controversies, all eyes will certainly be on 'Hobbs & Shaw' which is eyeing a summer release next year.
"Somebody gonna get hurt real bad?! 🤔 Somebody..." a fan commented, fuelling the speculation on social media. As someone else chimed in, cheekily adding, "Two bald and handsome men."
