After our news earlier this week that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Luke Hobbs character will be a bigger part of Fast 8 (than he was last outing), not to mention he may well be getting his own movie (here), now we get some more details on the character in the new movie, as well as the first look (above)

The actor put the above image on his Facebook page along with this:

EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: ‪#‎HOBBS‬ ‪#‎F8‬

When you strip a man of all he has. All that’s important to him. You force him to return to his roots.. and sometimes that’s a very dangerous and twisted place.

If I was going to return for another Fast & Furious I wanted to come in and disrupt the franchise in a cool way that got fans fired up and their blood pumping to see a new version of Hobbs and his “Daddy’s gotta go to work” mentality and set the table in a cool way for where the character goes in the future.

Maybe it’s a spinoff movie. Maybe it’s more ‪#‎FF‬ movies. Or hell maybe Hobbs just gets on his motorcycle and rides off into the sunset never to be seen again. 

Either way, I’ve had a solid first week of shooting, good to be back with the ohana, good to work again w/ my bud and director F. Gary Gray and our home studio of Universal Studios Entertainment, as always have been the best partners to me and my Seven Bucks Productions team. Most importantly… you guys around the world will really dig this new version of the role, ’cause as we always say, disrupters dent the universe.

It looks like Hobbs will be coming at the new movie with a very different approach and, as long as he’s still Hobbs, that’s fine by us.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
