Oh, it’s a good day for Idris Elba lovers.
The hottie with a body is in final talks to play the villain in the upcoming Fast and the Furious spinoff. The movie centers on U.S. Diplomatic Security Agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and one-time criminal Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham). The Crown star Vanessa Kirby is currently in final negotiations to join the cast as Shaw’s sister.
Although little is known about Elba’s character, we are certain he’ll be a memorable one. In fact, Johnson was so excited about Elba’s casting that he took to Twitter to express his joy. Hey, who can blame the dude? Elba is like an ice-cold lemonade on the hottest of summer days.
As expected, we have so many questions about this spinoff like: Will Helen Mirren reprise her role as Deckard’s mom? Will these three hunky dudes play a friendly game of The Rock, paper, scissors? Did Tyrese break into a million little pieces after hearing about Elba’s casting?
Hobbs and Shaw will hit theaters on July 26, 2019, so mark your calendars now buddy. There’s going to be an insane amount of muscles, withering stares, and car crashes in this movie.
