The great series of movies know as Fast & Furious have came out with seven incredible movies, but the adventures of the Fast & Furious team doesn’t stop at movie number 7. Although movie number 7 was amazing, filled with action packed sense through out the entire movie. The world is now hanging over there seats for the new Fast & Furious 8 to come out in theaters. Staring Dwayne Johnson, the film is expecting a releases on April 14 of 2017. Dwayne Johnson was in a press conference for his latest film — “San Andreas” — when he confirmed the news. Johnson simply told the reporter who asked him if he would be seen in the next movie with, “Of Course. It can’t go on without Hobbs.” His CIA character was introduced in the franchise in the fifth movie and has since been a key character in the franchise, which also offers comedic relief from time to time. If his appearance in “Fast and the Furious 8” is not enough, fans could potentially see more of Hobbs in his own spin off movie. Reports have come up that producers of the franchise have been looking to have an offshoot film for Johnson after the sixth or seventh iteration.
During the media session, the 43-year-old actor also revealed that he had been in meetings with the studio about the spin off.
“We are all interested in it,” shared Johnson. “I just had a big conversation with the studio. So we’ll see. I still think for me personally we’ve created a little bit of space for him in 7 and the gauge is set for what the audience will want. That’s my take on it, you know, but a lot of other people have to have input.” These words coming from Johnson him self tell us that the new movie will blow us away. Not knowing what to expect, we do know that the actors and crew members will provide us with a movie to remember and a movie to be know as one of the classics.
