Fast & Furious Spinoff: The Rock and Jason Statham

In recent news, Fast & Furious 9 has been moved to 2020, breaking the traditional 2 year gap between movies that's been going since F&F5.

To fill that 2019 spot, a spinoff movie about Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw.

This has been rumoured since the release of F&F8, with those two emerging as the best parts of the movie.

While it was expected that Vin Diesel would be the most pissed off at The Rock gaining spotlight, the saltiest reactions have come from... Tyrese Gibson. More specifically, his instagram:

#PSA Congratulations to @TheRock and your brother in law aka 7 bucks producing partner @hhgarcia41 for making the fast and the furious franchise about YOU And like you, DJ even if they call I will not be deleting this post,
Gn folks see you in 2020 April #FastFamily right? Nah.. its about #TeamDewayne #3yrs will it be worth the wait? #NoShaw just Hobbs. Will this be another #BayWatch? Guys guys just relax Im just a passionate film critic.
Diversity, love, multi ethnic worldwide multi generational, United Nations, One Race, Fast Family Until Dewayne showed up I guess this whole time he had a problem cause he wasnt the ONLY ONE on the movie poster, he ranted. I guess dreams do come true congratulations to @hhgarcia41 and @therock you guys are just amazing you really broke up the #FastFamily I tried to warn you guys You thought I was hating I was simply fighting to keep the family together what makes us great is when you see us all TOGETHER we dont fly solo I got 3 years of venting on this clown They offered but YOU didnt have to agree with a solo #HobbsMovie #OriginalFastFamily we salute you and stand on your shoulders #VinDiesel #PaulWalker #RobCohen#RomanTej were offered a spin off we TURNED IT DOWN!!!
If you move forward with that #Hobbs Movie you will have purposely ignored the heart to heart moment we had in my sprinter, I dont wanna hear from you until you remember what we talked about. Im on your timeline cause youre not responding to my text messages #FastFamily is just that a family We dont fly solo.
I have never and will never have a problem with this major movie star hes my brother, Im simply trying to reach him cause he wont call me back about this solo #HobbsMovie I want you to shoot it just not right now cause the #Fast9 release date has already been announced and we cant let our loyal fans #FastFamily or our loyal fast and furious FANS down on any level from pushing the date This is not a #Rant Im no Rock #Hater and I dont want this #Life I love my own. Im doing this for the #FastFamily Im loyal and I apologize for being loyal but dammit I am.
Man, this guy has a real problem with The Rock. The big beef between The Rock and Vin Diesel was a big part of the F&F8 production, resulting in a movie where Vin Diesel was never onscreen with any of the crew. Maybe splitting Hobbs into his own solo project is for the best?

The Rock's movie career was becoming a bust before he joined the Fast Five crew. He was stuck doing "The Tooth Fairy", "Race to Witch Mountain", "The Game Plan", and a few supporting roles until Fast Five made him a badass again. I am kinda opposed to a spinoff film with Detective Hobbs but I know Universal wants money and if there's a movie that can print money, they will do it. But wow, I guess Tyrese's post shows that he was on Team Vin and which everyone should. I'm still shocked "Fate of the Furious" barely had Vin interact with the cast members.

At first, Tyrese comes off like he doesn't know how movies work or what careers are outside of the Fast franchise, and then I realized he doesn't. What does he have to call you back about? Also, its the Rock, when is he going to have time to call you back? Have you ever seen this man's schedule?


I wasn't interested in this spin off at all, I don't really care for the Fast films outside of a curious "what are they doing now?" and the occasional "Are they in space yet? I'll pay admission for Fast in Space." But now that Statham may be in it, I'm sort of intrigued.

Why is he mad at Rock? It's Universal that offered, they're the ones that started any "division" between the cast members. And nobody's doing this INSTEAD of another Fast & Furious, it's no skin off his nose.

Sounds more like jealousy because he knows a Roman movie would never sell.

I feel Tyrese is partly joking about the scenario and coming across whiny just to play up to the media but at the same time is a little annoyed with how the rocks got the limelight (as expected) and is taking away from the main series and pushed the next film back in terms of release.... im actually entertained by his behaviour

Oh, Tyrese, why? That being said, looking forward to seeing the Hobbs/Shaw spin-off.

Translation: We're getting another xXx film, starring Dwayne Johnson instead of Vin Diesel.

Most people won't be able to tell the difference.

*shrugs* We get three MCU movies per year, we're getting a Star Wars movie every Christmas until the end of time, Daniel Craig just signed up for James Bond 25, and people are pissed this franchise got to see #5.

That "forehead" joke Dwayne made in FF7 must have struck a nerve with Tyrese.

I don't know whether I'd care for a Rock/Statham spinoff. Mind, I love The Rock and while for some reason I enjoy the F&F series despite not being a car person, I just don't know there's much worth exploring with only those two alone. I think it'd be too generic of an action flick to catch my interest, but hey if Universal wants to do it then oh well go for it.

As for Tyrese, to be fair he's felt like a tag along probably for these last two movies I think. Maybe even three. I mean he was fun in 2F2F, but he feels like he's just along cause Brian was involved and especially now that he's gone he's just a wisecracker. I don't know, I guess it really doesn't matter to think too deeply with these films.

The film is scheduled for release on August 2, 2019. It's going to try to give The New Mutants some competition. I know it's more than a year away, but I am confident that it will give the month of August a well needed boost during that summer.
