A rumored schism caused a spinoff from the Fast and Furious franchise — or was it the other way around? Either way, the spinoff is well underway with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham as the titular characters: Hobbs and Shaw. It’s a peculiar pairing, considering one was a cop and the other is a killer.

I’m interested. Both Johnson and Statham have on-screen presence. But if that isn’t enough, Idris Elba has been cast as the antagonist. Clearly, the charisma thrown into the film is the overwhelming. In a good way.

I gotta admit: I went from looking forward to the movie to absolutely stoked.

Hobbs and Shaw is slated for a July 26, 2019 release.

It’s gonna be a fun ride.
