“Deadpool 2” and “John Wick Chapter 2” director David Leitch has reportedly emerged as the frontrunner to direct the untitled “Fast and Furious” spin-off at Universal Pictures.
Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will reprise their roles of agent Luke Hobbs and criminal Deckard Shaw respectively. Chris Morgan, who has written pretty much every film in the mega-franchise, is penning the script.
Specifics of the plot are unknown, but the film is gearing up to begin shooting shortly ahead of a July 26th 2019 release.
