David Leitch To Helm Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s Fast & Furious Spinoff


Atomic Blonde
director, co-director of John Wick, and Stunt Coordinator on The Bourne Ultimatum David Leitch is set to direct the highly-anticipated upcoming Fast & Furious franchise spinoff centred on Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jason Statham’s characters.

The currently untitled offshoot, rumoured to be called Hobbs and Shaw, has a script from franchise writer Chris Morgan; the man who has written six of the eight Fast & Furious films.

Centred on Johnson’s ex-cop gone rogue Luke Hobbs and Statham’s former-terrorist Deckard Shaw, following the pair’s scene-stealing friendship in Fast & Furious 8, the new film will see the two launched into a brand new, high-octane mission to save the world.

David Leitch has just finished work on Deadpool 2, which is due out on the 15th of May.
