"Of course. Can't go on without Hobbs," Johnson said, referring to the return of his character DSS agent Luke Hobbs in the eighth film to the website NerdReport. His statement came after a press conference for the actor's upcoming earthquake disaster movie San Andreas.
Johnson also let loose news of a potential spinoff film about Hobbs during the conference. "I just had a big conversation with the studio, so we'll see. I still think for me personally, we create a little bit of space from seven and gauge what the audience will want and go from there. That's my take on it. Now a lot of other people have their own say," he said, according to NerdReport. That statement suggests that the Hobbs film is still far from a green light, but it's certainly enticing for F&F fans to possibly get two story lines in the future.
