Idris Elba Will Be Joining “The Fast & Furious” Franchise6 months ago by Amber Le in Movie News
The Fast & Furious is adding another notable actor to the roster of MVP’s. The franchise has been known for having multiple veterans of the Hollywood industry. Fast 8 casted Charlize Theron as the villian and now, Idris Elba will be joining the next film of the franchise who will be starring alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham. The 2 will have their own spin off titled Hobbs & Shaw.
Both actors went toe to toe with Vin Diesel and Tyrese but ended up helping out the crew as time went on just like Paul Walker’s Brian O’Connor did. Now they’re gearing up to face Elba as his character comes to light with a high tech assassin outfit and a bunch of bad guys ready to go as soon as he says the command.
Johnson posted up on Instagram to give fans a teaser of what’s to come for the upcoming movie.

I learned a long time ago (when I was a very sinful eyebrow raising villainous man in the crazy world of pro wrestling;) that heroes are only as great as their greatest villains. A pleasure to introduce the man himself @idriselba we brought in to our Fast & Furious franchise to wreak havoc, hell and mayhem on our heroes HOBBS & SHAW. The name: BRIXTON. The record: UNDEFEATED. The promise: SHOWDOWN OF ALL SHOWDOWNS. So cool having my brother @idriselba come and play in our sandbox. This one’s been years in the making!! As I always say, we either gonna get along or we gonna get it on… and fuck getting along 😈 #BRIXTON #TheConsequenceAgent #HellRaiser HOBBS & SHAW SUMMER 2019 📸 @hhgarcia41
