Looks like plans for a direct sequel to Hobbs & Shaw (2019) has changed. After appearing in the mid-credits scene in Fast X (2023), Dwayne Johnson (Black Adam) is set to officially return as Luke Hobbs in a new Fast and Furious standalone film.
From a script by Chris Morgan (Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), the film will take place between the events of the just-released Fast X and the upcoming Fast X: Part II, which is expected to release in 2025.
Johnson will also serve as producer with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia for their Seven Bucks Productions, along with Vin Diesel and Samantha Vincent via their One Race Films. Additional producers include Chris Morgan for his Chris Morgan Productions, Jeff Kirschenbaum for Roth/Kirschenbaum Films and Neal Moritz for Original Film.
