Dwayne Johnson Confirms Hobbs For Furious 8, Maybe Even His Own Spin-Off

Dwayne Johnson, better known to all of us as The Rock, let slip some hints that seem to confirm his return for the next instalment in the Fast & Furious series, Furious 8. He also makes mention of, although offhandedly, of a possible spin off centred on his character, Luke Hobbs. 

The verbal confirmation took place just after press conference held for Johnson’s latest film, San Andreas, where the actor told NerdReporter “Of course. Can’t go on without Hobbs.” He sounds rather confident, doesn't he?

On the subject of the possible Hobbs spinoff, Johnson wasn’t shy on details during the San Andreas Q&A session, adding that the all the parties involved are keen on the idea. He said, “I just had a big conversation with the studio, so we’ll see. I still think for me personally, we create a little bit of space from seven and gauge what the audience will want and go from there. That’s my take on it. Now a lot of other people have their own say."

Since there are currently seven Fast and Furious movies, with Vin Diesel confirming the existence and release dates for an eight instalment, perhaps the time is right for the franchise to move in a different direction. There's still a lot left in the franchise, it appears, and the fans are coming back for more amazing carsstunts and action. 

Would you like to see a Hobbs spinoff?

There's just something about cars. It's a conveyance, it's a liability, it's a tool; but it can also be a source of joy, pride, inspiration and passion. It's much like clothes versus fashion. And like the latter, the pursuit of perfection never ends.
