The Fast and the Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw is currently filming in London, and an on-set shot has appeared that’s kind of weird.
The movie stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, returning to their F&F roles of Luke Shaw and Deckard Shaw. Apparently the unlikely pair join forces and… erm, do something together – story details are thin on the ground currently. Plus, the F&F flicks – bless their eye candy filled cotton socks – are rarely heavy in plot anyway.
Idris Elba and Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) also star, as an “international terrorist leader and criminal mastermind” named Brixton and MI5 agent (and Deckard’s sister) Gabby Shaw, respectively.
As for that weird photo, dig this disembodied arm, which looks very much like a replica of Johnson’s. Wow, he’s so big now that he has stunt appendages to do his work! Either that or The Addams Family’s Thing is short on cash (and has hit the gym big time).
Want something with more of Mr The Rock in it? OK then, here’s a recent Instagram post with him looking even more seriously buff than ever for the role of Hobbs. It’s good to note that he actually still has both of his arms attached.

Dialed in & hit the mark. 260lbs of attitude & classy cuss words. After 18 weeks of disciplined diet & intense training, here’s where I landed my carcass for shooting my FAST & FURIOUS spin-off HOBBS & SHAW. Always room for improvements, but not too bad for a scarred up surgically repaired Brahma Bull who’s injuries always tell the story. Huge THANKS to my strength and conditioning coach @daverienzi for his masterful strategies that’s constantly shifting daily based on how I’m looking/feeling to achieve our goals. THANKS to EVERYONE in my inner circle (including the NASA scientists ?) who support the big picture – my diet, training, health & wellness, balance, consistency and execution. Finally, THANKS TO ALL THE FANS. My people out there worldwide ? who buy into our grind belief and my philosophy that payin’ our dues is owed on a daily basis. Thanks for rockin’ with me — let’s have some fun and take this HOBBS & SHAW franchise to the next level. #HardestWorkerInTheRoom #Hobbs #NightlyTequilaDrinker ?
Hobbs and Shaw is currently slated for a mid-2019 release.
