Dwayne Johnson

During an event with the press to promote San Andreas, former WWE champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said that he is onboard for the eighth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise.

When he was asked if he would be reprising his role as Luke Hobbs, Johnson replied with, “Of course. It can’t go on without Hobbs!”

Johnson also revealed that he is in discussions with Universal Pictures for a spin-off using the DS Special Agent Luke Hobbs character in the leading role.

“I still think for me personally we’ve created a little bit of space for him in 7 and the gauge is set for what the audience will want,” The Rock said.

Only Vin Diesel so far is confirmed for Furious 8 along with Johnson.
