Dwayne Johnson could power a small city with all that charisma surging through his big, bulging, veiny muscles (he can also help you keep track of the time with this nifty Rock Clock — he’s a rock of all trades), but he has a poetic side, too. In a lyrical black-and-white Instagram post, the superstar teased his involvement in the F. Gary Gray–directed Fast & Furious 8. Johnson, who stars alongside thirst trap Zac Efron and this meme in the upcoming Baywatch, writes:
When you strip a man of all he has. All that’s important to him. You force him to return to his roots.. and sometimes that’s a very dangerous and twisted place.
If I was going to return for another FAST & FURIOUS I wanted to come in and disrupt the franchise in a cool way that got fans fired up and their blood pumping to see a new version of Hobbs and his “Daddy’s gotta go to work” mentality and set the table in a cool way for where the character goes in the future.
Maybe it’s a spinoff movie. Maybe it’s more #FF movies. Or hell maybe Hobbs just gets on his motorcycle and rides off into the sunset never to be seen again.
Either way, I’ve had a solid first week of shooting, good to be back with the ohana, good to work again w/ my bud and director F. Gary Gray and our home studio of UNIVERSAL, as always have been the best partners to me and my #SevenBucksProds team. Most importantly… you guys around the world will really dig this new version of the role, ‘cause as we always say, disrupters dent the universe.
