Well, it looks like Hobbs and Shaw, the Rock and Jason Statham's “candy ass”-free Fast and Furious spinoff has started shooting. According to the caption accompanying the below picture, The Rock himself is not yet on set. So there may yet be some candy asses lurking around that he just hasn’t had a chance to identify. We will keep you updated on all candy ass discoveries as they become available.
But despite not actually being around, The Rock still made sure to share this behind the scenes image with his fans:
DAY 1 and the evolution has officially begun. Long awaited Fast & Furious spin-off movie, #HobbsAndShaw is electric. My partner in heavy crime & fun @jasonstatham is lookin’ like $1million bucks and holdin’ it all down. Our visionary & bad ass director @davidmleitch (just directed Deadpool2) at the helm and ready to evolve the franchise in exciting and fresh new ways. And as always, our @sevenbucksprod president @hhgarcia41 capturing the dopest images thru his lens. Keep crushing on that set boys... the man known as “HOBBS” will touch down in London in two weeks. Pancakes, tequila and ass kickin’s on me. #Day1 #TheEvolution #HobbsAndShaw
It’s not too exciting beyond just being first. Statham looks like Statham, and there is a fancy car present. That seems about par for the course. And of course there is director David Leitch, probably asking Statham if he’d be willing to be more Stathamy in the next shot.
Sounds like The Rock won’t join production for a couple more weeks. Hopefully he’ll send out more photos when he does, particularly if one offers a first look at Idris Elba's villain.
