The Fast and Furious spinoff called 'Hobbs & Shaw' is currently filming and a familiar face has been cast in the movie. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson announced that his real life cousin Roman Reigns will be in the movie.

The Rock and Roman Reigns might be cousins in real life, but the duo will be brothers in the Hobbs & Shaw movie. You can read Dwayne Johnson's Instagram announcement posted down below.

"The brothers’ roar. A lil’ HOBBS & SHAW exclusive. Good times droppin’ sweat and spillin’ blood with my family, Roman Reigns who’ll be playing my brother in our FAST & FURIOUS UNIVERSE. I’m very proud of his focus, effort and authentic performance in our movie for his very first time on film. I’m also very grateful to spend this quality time with my cousin here in the islands as he takes life one day at a time to recover from leukemia. His perseverance and humility battling this challenge has inspired our entire family as well as millions around the world in our beloved @WWE Universe. Can’t wait to see the “Big Dog” return back to the ring - his positive & focused mindset to return is straight up next level. Til’ then, this sacred Samoan 🇼🇸 ground you stand on is nourished with our ancestors blood. Today, we nourish it with yours. #WelcomeRomanReigns

This is the first time Roman Reigns will ever be in a movie and I'm glad he's making the leap to Hollywood. Currently, Reigns is taking a break from WWE while he's still recovering leukemia.

Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw will be released in North America on August 2nd, 2019. Aside from Dwayne Johnson and Roman Reigns, the movie also stars Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby and Eiza Gonzalez.
