Movie fans desperate for any good news right about now should be thrilled to hear that Hobbs & Shaw 2 is in fact in the works and on the way…eventually.
The Rock himself confirmed the good news when a fan asked him as much on Instagram, saying the following about the sequel to the popular Fast & Furious spinoff:
“We are developing now the next film, the next [Hobbs & Shaw] movie, and I’m pretty excited about it,” Johnson said. “[We] just gotta figure out the creative right now, and the direction we’re going to go.”
It’s great to hear that a sequel to Hobbs & Shaw is going to happen. Given how popular last year’s spinoff was, this is hardly surprising, but it is great to hear The Rock confirming it. While there’s no way to know when this sequel is coming, considering Fast 9 was pushed back to 2021, it’ll be a relief to know we can keep an eye out for this sequel in the future.
