HOBBS & SHAW Spin-off Lands DEADPOOL 2 Director
The Hobbs & Shaw spin-off has been an exciting prospect since it was announced last year.
Now, we finally have a director attached to the project. According to EW, Deadpool 2 director David Leitch will helm the spin-off from the Fast & Furious franchise. The film will reunite Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw for the first time since last year’s The Fate of the Furious.
The official Fast & Furious Twitter account also confirmed the news.

Leitch was rumored to be in talks to direct the film earlier this year and it finally being confirmed is a welcome surprise. The dynamic between Hobbs and Shaw has been one of the major highlights of the last two Fast & Furious films, so to bring in the action-focused Leitch to helm the project makes us even more excited for the film.
Fast & Furious franchise veteran Chris Morgan has turned in a script for the film, but no plot details are known at this time. We’ll certainly be keeping an eye on this one!
Hobbs & Shaw is scheduled to release on July 26, 2019.
What do you guys think of David Leitch directing Hobbs & Shaw?
