The Fast and Furious spin-off, Hobbs and Shaw, will be released next August and we couldn’t be more excited! What’s more, The Rock has boosted out excitement by revealing that there is a ‘biting’ chemistry between him and his co-star.
The two of them, Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham have co-starred in Fast and the Furious and they’re reunited again. We can’t say who is more excited with them working together, the fans or The Rock.
The 46-year-old actor in a recent interview for Entertainment Weekly, said: ‘I’m really happy that we were not only be able to crack the creative and really lean into the relationship and chemistry – the biting chemistry between myself and Jason Statham – but I think that also you find out that it’s something the fans have been wanting for some time now.’
Moreover, The Rock admitted that his main goal in life is to keep the Fast and Furious franchise alive. Having that in mind, in order to prolong its longevity so it can last as long as it can, he claims that it’s all about creating new stories and characters.
He also shared that filming Fast 8 was the time to make their move and they had a lot of fun doing it.
Previous to this interview, Dwayne published a teaser image on his Instagram account and he captioned it ‘We either gonna get along or we gonna get it on,’ ‘Fuck getting along.’ The black and white image features the two actors facing each other and there can be seen a certain tension.
Besides Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, Idris Elba will also be part of the cast of Hobbs and Shaw. Recently, there have been pictures of the trio filming scenes in London and Glasgow. Alongside these three amazing actors, the cast will be joined by Vanessa Kirby.
This film is all about the unlikely alliance between the Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs and the assassin Deckard Shaw. The Rock plays Hobbs while Jason is the assassin.
