Dwayne Johnson talks Fast & Furious spin-off

With Fast & Furious 7 having stormed the box office, it was no surprise when Universal confirmed that there will be an eight film in the series along in 2017. Dwayne Johnson has now confirmed that he will be returning for the next film, while also hinting that a Hobbs spin-off could yet be on the cards.

“Of course,” said Johnson, when asked by Collider whether he will be returning for round eight. “It can’t go on without Hobbs.” Meanwhile, the prospect of a spin-off continues to loom large…

“We all are interested in it,” says Johnson. “I just had a big conversation with the studio. So we’ll see. I still think for me personally we’ve created a little bit of space for him in 7 and the gauge is set for what the audience will want. That’s my take on it, you know, but a lot of other people have to have input.” Fast & Furious 8 will open on 14 April 2017.
