Dwayne Johnson Teases His Idea For HOBBS & SHAW 2, Calls It The “Antithesis” of The Fast and Furious Franchise

Dwayne Johnson isn’t done with the Fast and Furious franchise just yet. He’s got an idea for a sequel to his Hobbs & Show spinoff film and he’s already pitched it to the powers that be, and apparently they all loved what The Rock is cookin’! Johnson teased this idea during a recent interview on Sirius XM’s The Jesse Cagle Show, and he’s looking to really mix things up by distancing it from what the Fast and Furious franchise has become. He actually says this sequel will be the “antithesis” of the Fast and Furious franchise. When talking about the projects that take priority for him, Johnson shared: “So I’m at a point in my career now, I think you guys will appreciate, this is, we’ve internally for us at Seven Bucks, if a project comes my way, it must have what we call now, the Moses Effect. And the Moses Effect, meaning it must have the ability to push all the other projects to the side. And it has to be like, like that’s how good it is. So for example, Red Notice had the Moses Effect. Black Adam had the Moses Effect, Jungle Cruise and the Moses Effect.” He then went on to talk about the next adventure for Hobbs and how he’s looking to make something different from any of the Fast and Furious films: “So when it comes to Hobbs and Shaw, which we loved and loved making that movie, there’s an idea that I had that I called Donna Langley, called our writer Chris Morgan, our producer Hiram Garcia. And I said, ‘I have this idea and this direction for Hobbs.’ And I pitched it and it would be without giving it away, they all loved it. And, but it would be the, it would be that, it would be the antithesis of what Fast and Furious movies generally are in that they continue to go on and go on and go on in this case I wanted to, and I still want to do the quintessential Hobbes movie. That again, without giving it away that you watch a man walk off into the sunset.” Johnson added that he’s looking to disrupt things with this movie, explaining: “Donna loved it and they’ve been wonderful partners at Universal, but I said, ‘You know, we have an opportunity here, I think to go against the grain and let’s disrupt things a little bit, and let’s create a movie within the Fast and Furious world that is unexpected, that I think people will go, ‘Oh man, like, wow, thank you for that.’ And that’s it. So we’ll see. But by the way, that Hobbs, that has the Moses Effect too. That has that ability. As for when this sequel gets made, it’s only a matter of time: “Honestly it is. ‘When do you want to make it?’ Or ‘when can you make it?’ I mean, this is Donna’s words to me is, ‘When, when can you make it?’ What I’m telling you guys is I reached a point in my career where it now becomes just a matter of timing. And when we can, because now there’s four or five that have the Moses Effect. Now it’s just a matter of where can they go?”
