What else would it be called? I mean this is the franchise that has a movie called The Fast and the Furious and one called Fast and Furious. They don’t try that hard.

‘The Crown’s’ Vanessa Kirby Joins Dwayne Johnson in ‘Fast and Furious’ Spinoff (EXCLUSIVE)
By Justin Kroll @krolljvar

With her reign as Princess Margaret on Netflix’s acclaimed series “The Crown” officially over, Vanessa Kirby is taking her talents to the big screen. The British actress is in final negotiations to star opposite Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in “Fast and Furious” spinoff, “Hobbs and Shaw.”

“Deadpool 2” director David Leitch is on board to helm with Johnson and Statham reprising their roles of special agent Luke Hobbs and criminal mastermind Deckard Shaw, respectively. Kirby will play an MI-5 agent and Shaw’s sister.

“Fast and Furious” architect Chris Morgan penned the script with production set to commence this fall. Plot details are vague, but the central idea is that the film would see the often-at-odds duo team up. Johnson, Statham, and “Fast and Furious” producer Neal Moritz will produce.

Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz will produce alongside Johnson and his Seven Bucks Productions partners, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia, Jason Statham, and Chris Morgan for his eponymous production company. Kelly McCormick, Steve Chasman, Amanda Lewis, Ainsley Davies and Ethan Smith executive produce.

Since his arrival in the franchise’s fifth installment, Universal has tried to find a way for Johnson’s Hobbs to lead a standalone film, given his popularity with fans. When the studio saw the chemistry between his character and Statham’s starting in the series’ seventh movie, Universal saw it as an opportunity to develop a spinoff. It’s set to hit theaters on July 26, 2019.

Kirby, who received rave reviews that led to a BAFTA win for her role as the troubled sibling to Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s “The Crown,” appears next in “Mission: Impossible – Fallout.” She can also be seen in “Gareth Jones” opposite Peter Sarsgaard. Kirby is currently on stage performing in National Theatre’s “Julie” in London.

She is repped by WME, Hamilton Hodell, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal LaViolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman, LLP.

Idris Elba to Play Villain in ‘Fast and Furious’ Spinoff Starring Dwayne Johnson (EXCLUSIVE)
By Justin Kroll @krolljvar

Idris Elba is in final negotiations to play the main villain in “Hobbs and Shaw,” the “Fast and Furious” spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

“Deadpool 2” director David Leitch is on board to helm, with Johnson and Statham reprising their roles as special agent Luke Hobbs and criminal mastermind Deckard Shaw, respectively. “Fast and Furious” architect Chris Morgan penned the script, with production set to commence this fall.

The film will see the often-at-odds pair teaming up. Sources say Elba’s character is the antagonist the duo will go up against.

Since his arrival in the franchise’s fifth installment, Universal has tried to find a way to spin off Johnson’s Hobbs character, given his popularity with fans. Statham joined the series in the seventh movie, and considering the chemistry between the two actors in 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious,” Universal took action on plans to develop a spinoff. It hits theaters on July 26, 2019.

Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz will produce alongside Johnson and his Seven Bucks Productions partners, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia, Statham, and Chris Morgan for his eponymous production company. Kelly McCormick, Steve Chasman, Amanda Lewis, Ainsley Davies, and Ethan Smith will executive produce.

Exec VP of production Mark Sourian and VP of Production Jay Polidoro will oversee the project at Universal.

Elba’s no stranger to playing the baddie in popular tentpoles. He previously appeared as the villain in “Star Trek Beyond,” in addition to voicing the famous Shere Khan in Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book.”

He’s coming off a busy 2017 that included “The Dark Tower,” “Molly’s Game,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” and “The Mountain Between Us.” He most recently helmed the Sundance pic “Yardie.” Elba is currently in production on the Netflix comedy series “Turn Up Charlie,” which he created, and will topline and executive produce.

He is repped by WME, The Artist Partnership, and Ziffren Brittenham.

Elba as the villain? Now that would be cool.

I'd like to see him and Hobbs go into a 1-on-1 beatdown like him and Dom in Fast Five.

A little? lol

Gotta love Idris in almost everything he's done. Bring a little Stringer Bell to the role if he's going to be the bad guy.

Maybe, I am sure he will make some coin off it however as a producer or something.

Consider them marked. There is zero chance it makes more.

Not with this being the name of the movie it won't.

If they're as crazy with the titling as the main franchise, I predict the following sequels:

2 Hobbs 2 Shaw
The Hobbs and The Shaw
Hobbs 4 Shaw
Hobbs 5
Luke Hobbs & Deckard Shaw
Shaw 7
Luke & Deckard
Shaw and Hobbs 9
Luke Who's Shaw-ing
Hobbs Shaw
HS12

You seem really down on Johnson. He seems like a good guy who loves what he does and appreciates his fans. I can't help but like the guy. Plus he has a tremendous work ethic. Is it because of his little beef with Vin Diesel that soured you on him?

I find all his movies fun and escapism entertainment. They aren't high art.

I do agree though that Hobbs and Shaw isn't going to make anywhere close to what The Fate of the Furious made. That made about 1.2 billion worldwide.

I think Skyscraper will probably do similar numbers to what San Andreas pulled 3 years ago.

I agree and I didn't initially start out as a fan, kind of even mocked him in a review for The Scorpion King, but since really enjoyed him even if his characters are rather indistinguishable.

I do like some of his stuff. I wish he would get to remaking Big Trouble in Little China. That I would really be interested in. Yea his beef with Vin sort of pissed me off, if you look at his career after Fast Five he really started to take off. Did that movie help? You bet it did. I just think he should have been a little more respectful to what that series did for him. But what I do know it is very possible Vin was a dickhead the whole time to him.

His recent output has not excited me at all. I did like Jumanji and thought he was very good in that. I also liked his recent Central Intelligence quite a bit and of course like the character of Hobbs and most certainly will watch this spin-off.

Rampage I may or may not ever get to, I didn't like the game either so that may be part of it and Skyscraper will be a rental.

I hate that he's remaking BTiLC unless it's told from a different Chinatown, but I have no interest if he's Jack Burton.

Production has begun, but without Johnson as he’s still filming Jungle Cruise.
