Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham Partner Up as Hobbs and Shaw in Fast & Furious Spinoff
The Fast & Furious rivals team up to face-off against Idris Elba
Johnson is Luke Hobbs; Statham is Deckard Shaw — two former rivals who are forced to team up to defeat Idris Elba’s villain Brixton, who seems lifted out of a superhero movie.
“I am human evolutionary change,” Brixton proclaims as he’s revealed to be an engineered human, genetically modified to be bulletproof and unstoppable.
The Crown‘s Vanessa Kirby is another franchise newcomer, getting in on the action just as she did in last summer’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout.
Hobbs and Shaw opens Aug. 2.
