The fast and furious Hobbs and Shaw is all that fast and furious fandom has been talking about for quite some time. Though if you do want to call this movie with its original name you would have to say Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw and not just Hobbs and Shaw.
This project has been reportedly wrapped up in the mid-February this year. Seeing how this movie is in the incredible hands the director David Leitch who was known for his films like Atomic Blond and Deadpool 2 among others, the expectations are crazy high. Though it’s not much, this is what the need-to-know details we have on this big shot film so far!
When is the release date?
Although it was originally announced on July 26, due to some unknown reasons the date was pushed further away. At the moment, the date we have in our hands according to latest reports is August 2, 2019.
Who will be in it?
Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will be playing Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw for obvious reasons. Idris Elba would be plying the bad guy Brixton. The Crown fame Vanessa Kirby will also be a part of the cast as Hattie Shaw, an MI6 operative. Helen Mirren will resume her FF8 role of Magdalene Shaw, mother of Deckard and Hattie Shaw.
The Deadpool’s Eddie Marson and Baby Driver’s Eliza Gonzalez would be joining the cast as newcomers. Johnson also revealed the fact that Cliff Curtis from Fear the Walking Dead, Josh Mauga and John Tui will also be making an appearance as his brothers.
What is the plot?
To make our work a lot simpler by cutting off all the skimming through clues and hints from the production department, Universal was extremely kind enough to release a short synopsis.
This is exactly what the released film synopsis reads “Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, & lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.
But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be far worse than themselves”.
