per deadline:
EXCLUSIVE: Universal is huddling on a spinoff that will focus on the characters originated by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham and most recently seen in The Fate Of The Furious, sources said.

The franchise architects have said they might broaden the universe with spinoffs, and source said this is the one they are pursuing. This is in early stages, but they’ve met on the concept, which sources said will be scripted by Chris Morgan, the chief writer of the series that is hitting new heights with the eighth installment. The idea is for Johnson’s US Diplomatic Security Agent Luke Hobbs to form an unlikely alliance with Statham’s Decker Shaw, for a movie that could conceivably be made while they are figuring the next Fast film

Rock and Statham were the best parts of F8 so I welcome this.

If this means the Toretto gang can't have access to see it all know it all technology in the next movie, I'm cool with it.

I'd definitely watch that. Their scenes were the best parts of FF8 (and 7)

This is how you do it. 2 films.

The Fast : starring Vin and his crew.


The Furious : starring Rock and Statham.

THEY KNOW
THEY KNOW WHAT WE WANT

I want Han though.

I also think Hobbs is one of the most boring characters, the only ones more boring then his character is Vin Diesel and Letty.

I'd rather have a Tej and Roman spin off.

Pfft. They'll just introduce a new character from the same authority and give some "Hobbs is on another assignment" excuse for it.

Now I can skip Vin Diesel mumbling his way through scenes and get the movies I really want to see.

More Statham the better, Rock is just corny to me
The Rock is definitely corny as hell (and sometimes talks like a white guy doing an impression of how he thinks black people speak), but he's somehow able to still seem cool at the same time to me. I don't know how, but he can pull it off.

Knew it! They were way too good in the prison scene.

What's with the Vin hate? Ya'll haters greener then they money he his counting lol!

Rock and him squashed the beef and this is a spin off. Still have two mainline films to go. They have not gone to space yet and Han is still in a bio-genesis chamber completing the regeneration process. We still have a ways to go.
