Dwayne Johnson Says a Luke Hobbs Spinoff Film Could Come Between FAST & FURIOUS 6 and 7

     March 21, 2013


Ever since Dwayne Johnson first joined the cast of Justin Lin’s sequel Fast Five, there’s been talk of his Luke Hobbs character getting his own spinoff film.  Producer Neal Moritz said back in January of 2011 that they were “about to” get a script together for the Hobbs movie, and Johnson himself has been keen on the idea.  Johnson has a key role in this year’s Fast & Furious 6, as his DSS agent enlists Vin Diesel’s car-thieving crew to help him combat a rival team of thieves in Europe in return for Diesel and Co.’s full pardons.  Now Johnson has provided an update on the standalone Hobbs movie, suggesting it might come in between Fast 6 and the inevitable Fast & Furious 7.  Hit the jump for more.

dwayne-johnson-luke-hobbs-movieImmediately following the immense success of Fast Five, there was talk that Fast & Furious 6 and 7 might be shot back-to-back, as a storyline had been drummed up that was too large to tell in just one movie.  A recent major spoiler for the ending of Fast & Furious 6 tells us how the two films are connected, but now there’s the possibility that we might be getting a Luke Hobbs movie before we see Fast & Furious 7.  Speaking with Empire, here’s what Johnson had to say about the prospect:

“[We could see the Hobbs movie] possibly after this one, after the next one.  Possibly.  I’m not quite too sure, I know that’s the goal and we continue to build that character and have him take shape.  But yes, I can’t wait.”

It’s clear that nothing is concrete at this time, but it certainly sounds like a Hobbs standalone film is still very much part of the plan for the Fast & Furious franchise.  I’m sure we’ll have a better idea of what that movie could be after Fast & Furious 6 hits theaters on May 24th.  Watch the video interview below.
