Subscribe To Dwayne Johnson Thanks Fans For Supporting The Fast And Furious Spinoff Updates
The Fast and Furious spinoff is finally starting to come together over at Universal, and Dwayne Johnson recently did what Dwayne Johnson does best: Coming together on social to share a candid shot of him taking notes on the script for Hobbs and Shaw while also thanking the fans for sticking around while the franchise tries something new. Take a look at the latest from The Rock, below.
We haven't heard much about what the spinoff will be about so far. Some of what Dwayne Johnson mentions is repeat info, like the fact that Chris Morgan is writing the movie. Still, along with thanking the fans for sticking with the franchise, he also mentions we'll be hearing more about additional casting on Hobbs and Shaw soon. Obviously Johnson isn't going to be the person to bash on a movie he's starring in, but from what he's been saying, the movie might have a different "tone" than what we've come to expect from a Fast and Furious flick, as well.
As for the comments thanking the fans, those are coming a few months after The Fast and Furious spinoff was announced. At the time we learned about the spinoff, we also learned the Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham starrer would be pushing back the release of the upcoming ninth movie starring the original cast. This was not as smooth of a transition as it could have been, as longtime series actor Tyrese Gibson ranted on social media about how Johnson specifically screwed the fast family over when signing on for a spinoff, noting at the time that he and the rest of the cast "don't fly solo."
That's a lot of drama for a movie that hasn't even gone into production, yet. Somehow, Jason Statham has managed to stay out of this whole thing, and Dwayne Johnson genuinely seems excited about moving forward with the new Hobbs and Shaw premise. Plus, we've gotten eight Fast and Furious movies so far -- many of them great. Still, it should be nice just to switch gears and try something new for once. Hopefully, the fans will stick around to check it out.
