The Rock teases Fast & Furious spin-off with Jason Statham…

April 25th, 2017 by Marc Comments

With it looking likely that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jason Statham will be getting a spin-off featuring their Fast & Furious characters Deckard Shaw and Luke Hobbs, we now have a pretty tantalising tease for it.

The Rock himself, celebrating the massive success of Fast & Furious 8/The Fate of the Furious on Instagram, stuck on the comment below about he and Statham finally getting the fight that has been teased over the last two movies in the Fast franchise.

Now he COULD be talking about Fast 9 (which we know he’s on board for) but we reckon with all the chatter about he and Statham doing the spin-off that it’s most likely that.

Here’s what he wrote:

“A very very special shout out to a certain bald headed, English tea drinkin’, crumpets eatin’, God Save The Queen singin’ suuuuuum bitch, Jason Statham. One fine day, we will give the audience what they want and fight. And it will be the greatest fight in the history of movies. We will then drink like brothers as you nurse your wounds, because I’m gonna knock your teeth so far down your throat, you’re gonna have to stick a toothbrush up your ass to brush ’em. Thanks for trusting me brotha and cheers to always having fun for audience.”

Now THAT is something we’re looking forward to…

So, are you as excited as we are? Let us know.

The #1 movie in the world, two weeks in row. The first Hollywood movie was shot in 1910. Since then, only 29 movies have ever grossed over $1 billion at the box office. #FateOfTheFurious will be the 30th movie to cross that mark. Huge shout to our dynamite and ever growing cast, our incredibly hard working and patient production crew, Universal Pictures – Jeff Shell, Donna Langley and my favorite Rabbi and consigliere, Ron Meyer. Huge Rock size bear hugs to Universal’s relentless and brilliant marketing and publicity team. Many of whom I’ve known since I started my career at Universal 17yrs ago with The Mummy Returns. A pleasure to work with all the above. THANK YOU FANS WORLDWIDE for takin’ a ride with us for an 8th time. At the end of the day, you will always decide what happens next. I’m forever grateful at the opportunity to entertain you. And finally, a very very special shout out to a certain bald headed, English tea drinkin’, crumpets eatin’, God Save The Queen singin’ suuuuuum bitch, Jason Statham. One fine day, we will give the audience what they want and fight. And it will be the greatest fight in the history of movies. We will then drink like brothers as you nurse your wounds, because I’m gonna knock your teeth so far down your throat, you’re gonna have to stick a toothbrush up your ass to brush ’em. Thanks for trusting me brotha and cheers to always having fun for audience. #FateOfTheFurious #1MovieInTheWorld #ThankYouFANS #BringYourToothbrushStatham

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….
