Hobbs and Shaw: Currently 'No Discussions' Happening For a Sequel

Must read

Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw may not be back for a sequel.

During an interview with Comicbook.com, producer Kelly McCormick revealed that there are currently “no discussions” for a follow-up. “We would love to,” she said when asked about a Hobbs & Shaw sequel, but added "there's no conversations at this time."

Although Dwayne Johnson claimed that a sequel was in development, it looks as though any plans for a Fast & Furious follow-up have been canned. The news isn't necessarily surprising, however, since Johnson publicly walked out on the Fast & Furious franchise.

Still, McCormick feels there’s plenty in Hobbs & Shaw to expand the franchise. “I do feel like there were a lot of seeds planted to try to create a spin-off in a way that included a Kevin Hart and a Ryan Reynolds and all that kind of stuff,” said McCormick.

“And that was intentional but not necessarily because we had plans in mind, [but] just because it would be fun to have different players for them to play with if anybody or we wanted to go for it in a different way.”

The addition of Reynolds and Hart came as a bit of a surprise, with Reynolds suiting up as CIA Agent Locke while Hart played DInkley, an Air Marshal who provides little more than comic relief.

But while a Hobbs & Shaw sequel may not be happening right now, it could still be on the cards. “Dwayne's a really busy guy and he would be the one to motivate all of that,” said McCormick. “We're ready if he wants to and until then he's just dominating so all power to him.”

Dwayne Johnson recently starred in Black Adam, , which IGN gave a 5/10 and said: “Black Adam overindulges to the point where it’s hard to enjoy the DC anti-hero’s debut. It’s packed with undeveloped characters and an excessive number of repetitive action scenes, to the point where its half-baked debate on what it means to be a hero is lost in all the noise. Try as it might to capture lightning in a bottle, Black Adam never manages to find its spark.”
