‘Hobbs & Shaw’: Filming Wraps on Dwayne Johnson’s “Most Challenging Film”

     February 17, 2019

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw—a film that features Idris Elba playing a genetically enhanced terrorist therefore making it the frontrunner for the 2020 Best Picture Oscar according to me—has officially wrapped production. Star Dwayne Johnson shared a message announcing the end of filming, calling Hobbs & Shaw “easily the most challenging film I’ve ever produced and starred in.”

The film sees Johnson reprising the role of federal agent Luke Hobbs across from Jason Statham‘s rogue mercenary Deckard Shaw, two opposing badasses from the Fast & Furious franchise who should definitely get it over with and kiss already. Vanessa Kirby is also set to appear as Deckard’s sister, Hattie Shaw, an M16 agent. Hobbs & Shaw wraps production just as news broke that the still-untitled Fast & Furious 9—which probably won’t feature Johnson—pushed its premiere date back to May 22, 2020.

Check out Johnson’s wrap messages below. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw hits theaters on August 2.

Last men standing. HOBBS & SHAW is officially wrapped. Easily the most challenging film I’ve ever produced and starred in, however based on the fans’ insanely hyped “break the internet” reactions to our first trailer — this film is also shaping up to be my most rewarding. A HUGE bald and brotherly MAHALO to the man who trusted me and our chemistry and “pushed all his chips in” to make something bad ass and fun for the fans. My uso @jasonstatham. He’s one legit talented and tough bastard and the pure joy I got from making him laugh so fucking hard during the our takes he couldn’t even talk, I will always remember with evil glee. Finally, one of the best heli pilots in the world @fred_north demonstrating here our extreme commitment we all had to deliver the goods to our worldwide audience. #ThatsAWrap #LastMenStanding #AllChipsIn #HOBBSANDSHAW AUGUST 2nd @sevenbucksprod
