Dwayne Johnson announces that Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw has wrapped and finished filming in a serious of Instagram posts.
“Hey, guys I just want to thank your so much for making Hobbs & Shaw so special,” Johnson said in video two days ago. “We’ve all put in months and months and months of work for this top happen, but it’s a very, very special project for a lot of us. Me specifically, it’s more than a movie, it’s an oppurtunity for us to not only grown and expand the franchise, but also showcase a culture that is also very important to us here on the Island. For us to showcase this to the world this Summer means so much. So from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank all of you guys. Thanks you so much. I love you all.”
HOBBS & SHAW – ✌–out. My gratitude runs deep in sayin’ this goodbye. To EVERYONE who committed their talents and time to making our movie as great as it can be and for putting their trust in me to help drive this passion project forward – THANK YOU. This production will always be more than a movie to me. It’s represents a soul, a DNA, a toughness, a perseverance and a CULTURE. I love you all and a big fa’afetai tele lava again for trusting me on this one. Audience always comes first… and they’re gonna have a fucking blast! —— #ThatsAWrap #HobbsAndShaw #Culture AUGUST 2ND WORLDWIDE @sevenbucksprod
Last men standing. HOBBS & SHAW is officially wrapped. Easily the most challenging film I’ve ever produced and starred in, however based on the fans’ insanely hyped “break the internet” reactions to our first trailer — this film is also shaping up to be my most rewarding. A HUGE bald and brotherly MAHALO to the man who trusted me and our chemistry and “pushed all his chips in” to make something bad ass and fun for the fans. My uso @jasonstatham. He’s one legit talented and tough bastard and the pure joy I got from making him laugh so fucking hard during the our takes he couldn’t even talk, I will always remember with evil — glee. Finally, one of the best heli pilots in the world @fred_north demonstrating here our extreme commitment we all had to deliver the goods to our worldwide audience. #ThatsAWrap #LastMenStanding #AllChipsIn #HOBBSANDSHAW AUGUST 2nd @sevenbucksprod
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw has an August 2, 2019 release directed by David Leitch; written by Chris Morgan; produced by Morgan, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Hiram Garcia; executive produced by Dany Garcia, Kelly McCormick, Steven Chasman, Ethan Smith, Ainsley Davies; starring Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, and Helen Mirren.
After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and 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 badder than themselves.
Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.
