I learned a long time ago (when I was a very sinful eyebrow raising villainous man in the crazy world of pro wrestling;) that heroes are only as great as their greatest villains.
A pleasure to introduce the man himself @idriselba we brought in to our Fast & Furious franchise to wreak havoc, hell and mayhem on our heroes HOBBS & SHAW.
The name: BRIXTON.
The record: UNDEFEATED.
The promise: SHOWDOWN OF ALL SHOWDOWNS.

HOBBS & SHAW SUMMER 2019
The character of Elba has been renamed as ‘Wreak Havoc, Hell and Mayhem’ on Luke Hobbs (Diplomatic Security Service Agent) and also Deckard Shaw (Mercenary). Both rivals joined their hands in fighting against Elba, who is simply a lethal terrorist leader and a mastermind.
Also, they have to forget their difference of the past and should serve together in order to lock horns against an enemy who has been already labeled as ‘Undefeated’ and man who will deliver ‘Showdown of all Showdowns’ by very own Johnson.
David Leitch is the man who is managing all these great actors under one shed and is working on a script which has been written by Chris Morgan, who has given scripts for Furious 7 and The Fate of the Furious. The director has also expressed the reason why he wanted to be a filmmaker and also told us about the movie from which he got inspired, the director was talking to IGN as he said,
“There are these buddy movies from the ‘80s and ‘90s like Lethal Weapon and 48 Hours that really speak to me as a filmmaker. They’re ones that made me want to be a filmmaker in the first place. So to see the chemistry Johnson and Statham had in the last Fast, and to see the potential that they could be…it was hard not to say yes, and say, ‘Let’s go do this,”
The director of the movie has also revealed that they’re planning to introduce their very own franchise under the shed of Fast and Furious Universe, as he said,
“It’s an origin story, in a sense. It’s not an origin story, but we’re starting a franchise, so we want it to be a little bit more grounded, a little bit more character-centric. We’re going to set up the stakes for these guys and their relationship, but we’re also going to have some great set pieces and some action that you’d expect.”
The movie is scheduled to release on August 2, 2019, by Universal Pictures.
