Hobbs and Shaw will focus on Fast and Furious characters Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Statham) having to work together on a job even though they pretty much hate one another.
Recently, Seven Bucks Productions President Hiram Garcia shared some new details about the film as Seven Bucks is Johnson’s company that is producing the film in-part.
He also shared that that when they “created that Hobbs character for Fast Five” they always thought there would be an opportunity to have go off on other missions away from the parameters of the Fast and Furious movies.
“After the several movies that we did, it felt like the time was right after Fate of the Furious, and people really responded to Dwayne and Jason’s chemistry on screen and the fun that we started to find with them,” Garcia explained.
Hobbs and Shaw is scheduled to be released August 2, 2019.
