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...
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.
Do you have any interest in the spinoff? As always, let us know your thoughts down below.
