The upcoming Fast and Furious spin-off Hobbs and Shaw produced by Dwayne Johnson looks like it’s going to be a pretty fun ride for fans and newcomers to the series. Say whatever you want about how dumb the films can be in regards to story, the series has embraced this aspect and has gone pretty ballsy with their stunts so we can expect this upcoming film to do the same. The trailer was released a while back featuring some pretty insane shit we hope would only be a taste of what we’ll witness once the film is released this August.
Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) and starring Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Vanessa Kirby, Helen Mirren and Idris Elba among others, Hobbs and Shaw wrapped production recently and it looks like a lot of worked went into it. Hell, Johnson himself has considered this to be the most challenging film he’s produced and starred in when he revealed that the film officially wrapped production in an Instagram post.

Last men standing. HOBBS & SHAW is officially wrapped. Easily the most challenging film I’ve ever produced and starred in, however based on the fans’ insanely hyped “break the internet” reactions to our first trailer — this film is also shaping up to be my most rewarding. A HUGE bald and brotherly MAHALO to the man who trusted me and our chemistry and “pushed all his chips in” to make something bad ass and fun for the fans. My uso @jasonstatham. He’s one legit talented and tough bastard and the pure joy I got from making him laugh so fucking hard during the our takes he couldn’t even talk, I will always remember with evil 😈 glee. Finally, one of the best heli pilots in the world @fred_north demonstrating here our extreme commitment we all had to deliver the goods to our worldwide audience. #ThatsAWrap #LastMenStanding #AllChipsIn #HOBBSANDSHAW AUGUST 2nd @sevenbucksprod
Yep, looks like Johnson and team poured their blood, sweat and tears into this project and of course, The Rock being the People’s Champ is grateful as always, In a more recent Instagram post, Johnson expressed a ton of gratitude to those involved in the production of Hobbs and Shaw and it’s quite touching to be honest.

HOBBS & SHAW – ✌🏾out. My gratitude runs deep in sayin’ this goodbye. To EVERYONE who committed their talents and time to making our movie as great as it can be and for putting their trust in me to help drive this passion project forward – THANK YOU.

Let’s hope all this work actually paid off and that the editing department will be able to deliver something special. With Leitch on board, we can expect Hobbs and Shaw to deliver some great action and with these stars leading the film, we sure as hell can expect some balls out charisma.
