Johnson stated that Samoan culture didn’t have the opportunity to reach billion people around the globe, that it has with this movie. He stated that he is ecstatic to see something like that happening and that he is involved in this project. He will reprise the role of policeman Luke Hobbs, and Jason Statham will reprise his role of Deckard Shaw.

Today, Jason Statham lives in Los Angeles and he was very happy to return to the United Kingdom, to be a part of a large, blockbuster movie. He said that he loved working in the UK after a really large amount of time. The movie was filmed just outside the Leadenhall`s and Lloyd`s buildings. His character, Deckard Shaw is a typical representative of the people from the United Kingdom.

Besides ‘Hobbs & Shaw’, the fans of the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise are eagerly waiting for Fast & Furious 9 in 2020. Even though the ninth film was supposed to be released this year, it was postponed due to the production of ‘Hobbs & Shaw’. Consequently, The Rock was publicly criticized by Tyrese Gibson for prioritizing his spinoff over the main entrance of the series.

Take a closer look into the Fast & Furious Spin-off Hobbs & Shaw

We have new information about Hobbs & Shaw, the Fast & Furious spin-off.
The Rock will come back in the roll of Luke Hobbs in the upcoming movie and last Saturday, on December 1 he shared a pic from the set – a very intense, action packed scene. His companion Vanessa Kirby is in the pic too. You can look up the picture on Dwayne Johnson’s instagram account.

 

The caption of the picture reads: “On Set. HOBBS & SHAW. They always play hard to catch. The ever chivalrous Hobbs told Hattie Shaw (MI6 operative and overall bad ass played by my homegirl [Vanessa Kirby]) we can do this dance one of two ways. We’ll share some tequila and then you’re under arrest and I’m taking you in or…I’m taking you in. Apparently, she felt the tequila would have to wait. For the record, we closed down the streets of London to shoot this massive action sequence and on the first take [Kirby] here takes off like the second coming of Usain Bolt…WHILE WEARING NO SHOES.”

Back in October, The Rock posted an instagram that was the first look at the movie, and it was a picture of him and Jason Statham (Deckard Shaw) staring at each other with fierce looks on their faces.
