Hobbs & Shaw 2 Confirmed As Movie Production Starts
Coming straight from the big guy himself, Dwayne Johnson tells that Hobbs & Shaw 2 is actively in the production phase. The spinoff series to Fast & Furious kicked off last year starring Johnson and Jason Statham as they begrudgingly join forces to take down terrorism. The film did not make it to the heights of the parent movie series; however, it did enough business for the filmmakers to think about making another one. The movie was a launchpad to additional spinoffs, something that looks to be clear for the Fast & Furious series.
Hobbs & Shaw 2 Production Begins
The news about Hobbs & Shaw’s beginning production comes from The Rock himself. During an Instagram Live session, the actor told the following news:
“We are developing now the next film, the next movie, and I’m pretty excited about it. Just gotta figure out the creative right now, and the direction we’re going to go.”
Johnson ended by thanking the fans for making the debut movie of the series a huge success. While the box office figures claim Hobbs & Shaw to be a huge success, the movie left a few loose plot threads. Perhaps they were all pointing towards the coming of a sequel. The movie also set a stage for the likes of Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Hart to play bigger roles along with the likes of Statham and Johnson. Vanessa Kirby and Eiza González also received key characters, something that they also can build up in the coming movies of the franchise.
The Hobbs & Shaw movie series successfully made a flight into the sci-fi realm, distinguishing it from Fast & Furious-like action plot. This was possible because of the “supervirus” and Idris Elba’s cyber-genetic role, which fit in so well. Now that we know that Hobbs & Shaw 2 have begun production, what else should we expect from the series? One thing I for sure, Johnson and Statham might be here for a while to gel everything together.
