Hiram Garcia is one of the producers of Hobbs and Shaw 2. He shares all the information about it in his interview with Vice-President, Jason Momoa. He talks about how he is very excited about this project because of its diversity, and that we should expect a lot from it. Hiram also mentioned that he has been working on this movie for almost two years now, but has never regretted making such a big commitment to it as he was always sure that there would be something amazing coming out of it eventually. Hiram said, “I’m really proud to be part of a film where we have so many diverse characters.”
What does Hiram Garcia talk about Hobbs and Shaw 2?
According to producer Hiram Garcia, there will be a sequel to the Fast & Furious spinoff called Hobbs & Shaw. In this film, Dwayne Johnson plays Hobbs and Jason Statham plays Shaw. After the 8th installment of Fast & Furious, they made a new movie with just the characters in it. That’s how much they all liked each other. In Hobbs and Shaw, the characters were fighting each other while they tried to take down Idris Elba’s bad guy.
One of the reasons that led to the spinoff was a little tension between Dom and Johnson. Dom is in the Fast & Furious movies, and he’s played by Vin Diesel. The actors have ended their disputes. But Johnson will not appear in the main series of movies. The movie Hobbs & Shaw made a lot of money, and they are making another one. However, Hobbs & Shaw was released in 2019 and a sequel has not yet been made.
What can we expect from Hobbs and Shaw 2?
In an interview with Collider, producer Hiram Garcia shared an update about Hobbs & Shaw 2. He said it is still in the planning stages. You need to figure out what the next movie will be about. Johnson’s Hobbs won’t be in the next two Fast and Furious movies, but they want to do a sequel with him.
After filming Fast 8, Dwayne Johnson made the clear decision to close Fast & Furious. He wished them all well and we shifted our focus to other avenues of storytelling. So while he will not be in F10 or F11, that won’t stop us from doing what we want to do. Obviously, all these characters are in the Fast universe and we want to see them succeed. We have special plans for Hobbs, but fans will love the surprise! We’re working on something that is very different from another studio. We want to get into it, but we know the studio wants us to work on it right away.
What is the other information related to it?
The report that Johnson will not return to the main Fast & Furious franchise seems true. Gracia says he will not return too. However, Statham’s character did show up for a little while at the end of the movie. He teased his return to this movie’s franchise in that scene. Johnson will not make any more movies. But the movie will continue to have characters that are connected. With the Hobbs & Shaw sequel being developed, any addition that Shaw makes to this franchise will likely affect the spinoff films, unless Shaw’s tease in Fast and Furious 9 was purely set up for Hobbs & Shaw 2.
