The Fast and Furious spinoff starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Jason Statham is currently in production and it looks like we have finally received a name of the movie.

Not to mention it also sounds like the script is finished and the stars seem happy with what they have seen so far.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson shared more details about the spinoff movie over on his official Instagram account. You can read his comments about the new movie posted down below.

"Sunday shakas and scripts. Reading our new Fast & Furious spin-off, titled HOBBS & SHAW w/ my dude @jasonstatham and a few surprise casting announcements coming soon. Director, @davidmleitch (directed DEADPOOL2) has a sharp/cool vision and tone for our movie and our writer, Chris Morgan is turning in inspired work. Good to see our franchise evolve and grow. Helluva fun ride - this one’s for the fans. THANK YOU to our entire hard working production crew putting in the hard work to make something great. Mahalo and see you soon!"

Universal Pictures is making the spinoff first before concentrating on Fast and Furious 9 which has had a release date delay.

Universal Pictures has high hopes the spinoff can do really well thanks to the amount of star power that Dwayne Johnson has.

Johnson has one of the best records in Hollywood today as most of his films earn a lot of money at the Box Office.

The only recent flop he's been involved in was his comedy reboot of the TV show 'Baywatch'. Aside from Baywatch, he's been on a huge roll.

Before 'Hobbs and Shaw' releases in cinemas next year, you can catch The Rock later this Summer in a movie called 'Skyscraper'. This is an action film that has taken a lot of inspiration from the movie 'Die Hard'.
