Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is set to bring his "Fast and Furious" character Luke Hobbs back to the big screen. This time around, however, he's the star in a spinoff from the main franchise. Titled "Hobbs and Shaw," the film features The Rock and co-star Jason Statham reprising his role as Deckard Shaw. "Hobbs and Shaw" will hit theaters on July 26, 2019, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Also joining the cast is Idris Elba.

Here at Jalopnik, we get a lot of press releases, marketing pitches, spam and emails. Most of them I half-heartedly archive, but one caught my eye today: a pitch with the subject line “David Leitch to direct Fast & Furious spin-off starring Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham.” And I got very excited because I initially and very quickly read that as “David Lynch to direct Fast & Furious spin-off starring Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham.” Alas, that is not the case. I am here to report that unfortunately, and against Hollywood’s better judgment, the Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive director is not in fact helming a Fast & Furious spinoff. And that sucks, because I believe that should happen. Anyway, EW reports that David Leitch, who directed Atomic Blonde (which I liked) and is doing Deadpool 2, is making a spin-off of the car franchise starring characters Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw, played by Johnson and Statham, respectively. This is … [Read more...] about What Would David Lynch’s Fast And Furious Look Like?
