Dwayne Johnson is getting his own new Fast & Furious movie set to follow up on the recently released Fast & Furious 10.

After his acclaimed return in an end credits scene from Fast & Furious 10, it’s now confirmed that superstar Dwayne Johnson, 51, will be getting his own new Fast & Furious movie. “The Rock” itself announced this on social networks with the words “Luke Hobbs will return to the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise”. According to industry magazine The Hollywood Reporter the Universal film studio has also officially announced another, as yet untitled part of the successful film series starring Johnson.

Neither “Fast & Furious 11” nor “Hobbs & Shaw 2”

The new “Fast & Furious” film, which is in development at Universal, is intended to continue “Fast & Furious 10”, which was only released in German cinemas on May 17th, and lead over to the still untitled “Fast & Furious 11 “. The Dwayne Johnson film that has now been announced is therefore not a sequel to “Hobbs & Shaw”, the 2019 spin-off film in which Johnson and action star Jason Statham, 55, took center stage.

“Vin Diesel and I put all of that behind us”

This development is particularly remarkable because of the years of public differences between Johnson and “Fast & Furious” boss Vin Diesel, 55. Johnson said so in December 2021that there was “no chance” of his return to the hit franchise – only to return for a cameo in Fast & Furious 10 this year.

Johnson announces this in his current Instagram post: “Last summer, Vin Diesel and I put all of that behind us. We will lead as brothers and with determination.”

No Vin Diesel in Dwayne Johnson’s new Fast & Furious movie

As “The Hollywood Reporter” has learned from inside sources, several other stars of the “Fast & Furious” film series will appear in the now announced Dwayne Johnson film – but not Vin Diesel. According to the US trade journal, the two action stars, who have been in a clinch for so long, “found a way to reunite behind the screen, but not on the screen”.

Chris Morgan, 56, the author of “Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw” is responsible for the screenplay of the now announced Dwayne Johnson film. The scripts for “Fast & Furious 3-8” also come from Morgan’s pen. A start date has not yet been set.
