The “Fast and Furious” spin-off “Hobbs & Shaw” is right in the midst of production and while we’ve already seen photos of Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson back in action, the first photo is now out of Idris Elba as the film’s villain Brixton.
Elba will reportedly “wreck havoc, hell, and mayhem on our heroes” as he takes on Johnson’s Agent Luke Hobbs and Statham’s criminal Deckard Shaw. Vanessa Kirby also stars while David Leitch directs the project which is slated for release early in 2019.

I learned a long time ago (when I was a very sinful eyebrow raising villainous man in the crazy world of pro wrestling;) that heroes are only as great as their greatest villains. A pleasure to introduce the man himself @idriselba we brought in to our Fast & Furious franchise to wreak havoc, hell and mayhem on our heroes HOBBS & SHAW. The name: BRIXTON. The record: UNDEFEATED. The promise: SHOWDOWN OF ALL SHOWDOWNS. So cool having my brother @idriselba come and play in our sandbox. This one’s been years in the making!! As I always say, we either gonna get along or we gonna get it on… and fuck getting along #BRIXTON #TheConsequenceAgent #HellRaiser HOBBS & SHAW SUMMER 2019 @hhgarcia41
