Universal Pictures is reportedly developing a spinoff film based on Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s characters from the latest Fast & the Furious film Fate of the Furious.
According to Deadline.com, while still in the early stages, the spinoff film is expected to focus on Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw, following the success of the chemistry between the two characters in the latest film.
Chris Morgan, the chief writer behind the Fast & Furious franchise films since Tokyo Drift, is said to be on board to pen the script for the as-yet-untitled spinoff, with the plot to centre around Hobbs and Shaw forming “an unlikely alliance” of some sort.
The Furious franchise, now on its eighth instalment, shows no signs of running out of gas, with the latest film — now going into its second weekend — having grossed US$685 million worldwide to date.
