How Hobbs And Shaw Compares To Other Fast And Furious Films, According To Its Producer
Before the release of Fast and Furious 9, the series is going to spin off in a brand-new direction by taking what worked in The Fate of the Furious and focusing on Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in their very own buddy movie. Many fans still have quite a few questions about the direction and scale of the film, and when I posed some of these questions to producer and President of Production at Seven Bucks Productions, Hiram Garcia, he explained that the film would be made for a modest budget, while also delivering what fans have come to expect from this world. Garcia said:
So, if nothing else, we can generally look forward to something that honors the legacy of the Fast and Furious series. The Hobbs & Shaw spinoff movie will deliver some solid action and spectacle, but it will do so in a way that's cost-effective for the studio and doesn't eat into the film's profit margins. Enter director David Leitch, who has proven with films like Deadpool 2, John Wick, and Atomic Blonde that he knows how to craft some fantastic action with (relatively speaking) lower budgets than movies like Furious 7 or Avengers: Infinity War.
One other thing that seems particularly notable about Hiram Garcia's remarks is the fact that there seems to be full franchise potential in this idea. As he laid out in his comments during our interview, the Hobbs & Shaw Fast and Furious spinoff is being framed as the entry point for a brand-new franchise, thus seemingly indicating that the folks behind this movie have considered the possibility of sequels and future spinoffs. Of course, we will have to wait until the first film premieres to see what happens from there.
As always, make sure to stay tuned for more updates related to the Hobbs & Shaw Fast and Furious spinoff movie as more information related to the film is made available to us. The film will debut on August 2, 2019!
