You have to love social media. Earlier today, Dwayne Johnson shared a photo [via his instagram] of Idris Elba in character as villain Brixton in the “Fast & Furious” spin off “Hobbs & Shaw.”
The film is in full production mode and is set to follow Dwayne Johnson’s Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s assassin Deckard Shaw.
In addition to Johnson, Statham, & Elba, The Crown‘s Vanessa Kirby is also set to star in the film. What a great cast… Hollywood is brilliant at writing out cast members from a franchise by creating spin-offs. A very smart way to keep the “Fast & Furious” franchise going, minus it’s original characters. One thing is for sure, we won’t see Tyrese Gibson in this production.
