David Leitch is growing from strength to strength. After directing movies like ATOMIC BLONDE which was well received for its explosive action scenes with Charlize Theron in the lead. The director is currently busy with DEADPOOL 2 and will soon enough start working on THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS spin off titled HOBBS AND SHAW.
The characters of HOBBS AND SHAW are shown to be enemies but learn to work together as seen in the last film. HOBBS AND SHAW duo rivalry started after Jason Statham’s character Deckard Shaw’s brother was killed and Deckard Shaw seeks revenge.
This new spin off plans to have both these characters that will solve crime and it remains to be seen.
Director David Leitch said, “It’s actually been really fun starting to press this movie with Dwayne and Jason. I couldn’t be happier. I have done quite a few movies with Jason as a second unit director and a choreographer. I know him really well. I think what attracted me to that franchise is they really want to do something different. They understood that I wanted to sort of evolve their world, outside of the Fast world, and give it its own imprint…you’re evolving, but you’re still being true to the DNA and the core of the characters that people love. I love that challenge, and doing it with Dwayne and Jason is like a dream. Those guys are hardworking, talented actors.”
HOBBS AND SHAW is scheduled to hit theatres on July 26, 2019.
