Hobbs & Shaw (promoted as Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw)[2] is an upcoming American sc-fi buddy cop action film directed by David Leitch and written by Chris Morgan. It is set to be a spin-off of The Fast and the Furious franchise, featuring the characters Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in the leading roles. The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Roman Reigns, Vanessa Kirby, and Helen Mirren.It is scheduled to be released in the United States on August 2, 2019 by Universal Pictures.


Two years after the events of The Fate of the Furious, federal agent Luke Hobbs and former-British military turned mercenary Deckard Shaw must join forces in order to stop a new threat emerging from Brixton Lore, a cyber-genetically enhanced international terrorist.




In November 2015, Vin Diesel announced in an interview with Variety that potential spin-offs for The Fast and the Furious series were in the early stages of development.[3] A spin-off film centered around characters Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw was announced in October 2017 by Universal Pictures and set a release date of July 26, 2019 with Chris Morgan returning to write the script.[4] Variety reported that Shane Black was being considered to direct the film.[5] The announcement of the spin-off provoked a response on Instagram by Tyrese Gibson, criticizing Johnson for causing the ninth Fast & Furious film to be delayed for another year.[6] In February 2018, Deadpool 2 director David Leitch entered talks to direct the film.[7] In April 2018, Leitch was confirmed as the director for the film and added David Scheunemann as a production designer.[8][9]


In July 2018, Vanessa Kirby was cast in the film to play an MI6 agent and Shaw's sister, along with Idris Elba to play the main villain role in the film.[10][11] In October 2018, Eddie Marsan joined the cast of the film.[12] In November 2018, Eiza Gonzalez joined the cast of the film.[13] In January 2019, Johnson revealed that his cousin Roman Reigns would appear in the film as Hobbs' brother.[14] Additionally, he announced that Cliff Curtis, Josh Mauga, and John Tui would also portray brothers of Hobbs.[15] Helen Mirren was also confirmed to be reprising her role from The Fate of the Furious.[16]


Principal photography began on September 10, 2018, in London, England.[17][18] Dwayne Johnson joined the production two weeks later, on September 24, 2018, after wrapping Jungle Cruise.[19] In October, filming moved to Glasgow, Scotland to recreate London.[20] Filming also took place in late 2018 at Eggborough Power Station, North Yorkshire.[21] Filming wrapped on February 16, 2019.[22]


The visual effects are provided by DNEG and Framestore, supervised by Mike Brazelton and Kyle McCulloch, and produced by Dan Glass.[23]


The first poster was released on January 31, 2019.[24] The first trailer was released on February 1, 2019.[25]


Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is set for an August 2, 2019 release[26] after being moved by Universal Studios from its previous date of July 26, 2019.[27]
