The Rock won’t be back for Fast 10 or 11, but fans are still holding out for a sequel to the Hobbs & Shaw spin-off. That is not an impossibility, but it’s nowhere near happening.
While speaking to Collider, producer Hiram Garcia shared an update on Hobbs & Shaw 2. The movie is still in its planning stages, so it’s not dead yet. In fact, the studio keeps urgently asking for updates “ASAP!” So, there is definite interest to cash in on that franchise once again.
“At the moment, we’re trying to figure out what that sequel is going to be, but we have some very big ideas.”
“After filming Fast 8, [Dwayne Johnson] made the clear decision to close the Fast & Furious chapter for all the evident reasons. He wished them all well and shifted our focus on to other story telling avenues. So while he will not be in F10 or F11, that won’t in any way interfere with our Hobbs plans. Obviously, all these characters exist in the Fast universe and we love to see all aspects of that universe thrive and succeed. We just have specific plans for what we want to do with the Hobbs character and I think the fans are going to love it! We’re working to deliver something very unique and fresh and we know the studio is eager for us to get into it ASAP!”
The Fast franchise will end once this present trilogy concludes. The Rock confirmed that he will not be back for Fast 10 or 11, meaning his character will only exist in the Hobbs & Shaw universe. So, many fans have another reason to pull for that sequel.
