Dwayne Johnson Confirms 'Fast & Furious' Spinoff in Letter to Fans

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has confirmed that he will return to the big screen as Hobbs in an upcoming Fast & Furious spinoff alongside Jason Statham as Shaw.

“Daddy’s gotta go back to work ~ Hobbs,” the 45-year-old actor wrote on Instagram along with a clip teasing the release date of July 2019.

The post comes days after Tyrese Gibson slammed The Rock for allegedly being the reason for Fast & Furious 9 getting postponed.

“Pumped to expand and build out the FAST & FURIOUS universe in a cool, exciting way with our @sevenbucksprod, writer/producer Chris Morgan, producer Hiram Garcia and lead producer and my bigger twin, Neil Moritz,” Dwayne wrote. “Thank you UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for being tremendous partners who see the big picture and for coming to us years ago with this spinoff idea. Huge shout to my brother, Jason Statham for the trust and wanting to create and deliver something fresh and bad ass for the fans.”

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for this franchise that I’ve enjoyed droppin’ blood and sweat in over the years and my vision is to create greater opportunities for not only my fellow FF cast mates, but for other amazing actors as well who want to be a part of something new and cool,” he added. “I want to use my spinoff platform to create new characters that fans will ultimately love to have fun with in multiple chapters and platforms. Film, TV, Digital, Virtual Reality etc.. the more opportunities we can create the better for the fans. Smart business.”

“Let’s have some FUN and to quote, Hobbs the boss, if you don’t like it, we’re happy to beat that ass like a Cherokee drum,” he concluded. He also added in hashtag format, “Candy asses need not apply.”
