IDRIS ELBA JOINS DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON IN “FAST AND FURIOUS” SPIN-OFF
Idris Elba is in final negotiations to play the main villain in “Hobbs and Shaw,” the “Fast and Furious” spinoff starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Johnson will reprise his role as special agent Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham Johnson as criminal mastermind Deckard Shaw with production set to begin this fall. The film will see the often-at-odds pair teaming up and Elba’s character is the antagonist the duo will go up against.
Deadpool 2 director David Leitch is on board and the film is set to hit theaters on July 26, 2019.
