The Rock And Jason Statham Will Star In A Furious Spin-Off

Celebrity

What does Vin Diesel have to say?

Last week we learned there was an end credits scene cut at the last minute from "Fate of the Furious" which hinted at a possible team-up between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw characters. Early test screenings of the film still had this scene included and audiences liked what they saw. However, series star Vin Diesel, who also serves as a franchise producer, didn’t like the scene for whatever reasons and had it removed.

But now, according to Deadline, in light of the Fate’s so far $685 million global box office income, the studio wants to proceed with that Hobbs-Shaw spin-off. In fact, Furious series screenwriter, Chris Morgan, has already been tasked to write the spin-off, but no production date has been set just yet. And there’s more: Variety claims Charlize Theron’s character, Cypher, could also be involved, with the two men joining forces to chase her down. That’s just one potential plot, but this could easily change going forward. As far as Vin Diesel goes, since he and Johnson recently ended their feud, it appears he’s now more willing to see the spin-off happen.

Everyone involved stands to make a lot of money here, and the studio wasn’t about to let two guys’ egos stand in the way of profit. A Furious spin-off film has been planned for some time, but only now have we learned what the studio had in mind. We certainly have no objections to this idea.
