DEADPOOL 2 Director Eyed To Take The Helm Of The Rock's Planned FAST & FURIOUS Spinoff

Dwayne Johnson helped take the Fast & Furious franchise to another level and is currently developing a spinoff which will revolve around Hobbs and Jason Statham's character. Now, it may have a director...

Following the debut of the first full-length trailer for Deadpool 2/The Untitled Deadpool Sequel, all the signs are pointing to the movie being something very special indeed. John Wick co-director David Leitch took over from Tim Miller and he may have already lined up a new gig in the form of the Fast & Furious spinoff which looks set to revolve around Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham's characters.

Those two have shown that they have a great deal of chemistry as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw, so it's easy to see why Universal is interested in moving forward with this project before Fast & Furious 9.

Chris Morgan penned the screenplay for the spinoff and it makes sense for Leitch to be hired here; after all, he's worked with Statham four times in the past (he served as a fight designer and second unit director on The Mechanic) and Deadpool 2 should be a hit. Seeing the filmmaker bring his unique brand of action to a movie revolving around The Rock and Statham would be an awful lot of fun.
