'Fast & Furious' Spin-Off Planned Before 'Fast 7', 'Fast 6' Goes IMAX and More

Luke Hobbs Fast and Furious spin-off plannedDid you know Fast & Furious 6 is being digitally re-mastered for an IMAX presentation? On top of that, Universal has confirmed Fast & Furious 7 and there are hints there may be a spin-off movie focused on Dwayne Johnson's Luke Hobbs character.

Johnson told Empire the goal was to release the spin-off before the seventh films adding, "We continue to build that character and have him take shape. But yes, can't wait."

Previous speculation had it that Jason Statham will have a small cameo in Fast 6 and will then play the villain in Fast 7. I wonder if he will also play a role in this proposed spin-off.

Fast & Furious 6 hits theaters on May 24 with the IMAX presentation expected to begin hitting theaters internationally on May 22.

    Okay. I think everyone saw something like this coming.

    This will be the first time Jason Statham has ever played a villain

      He actually has before. He was a dirty cop in Cellular a while back.

        Ooh, don't forget his cameo in one of my personal favs, Collateral.

    Franchising at its very best! Take notes people. This is how you milk a film series right, make more movies that get better exponentially, and don't suck as you keep churning them out. Spin offs? well why the hell not?!
    Kudos to Diesel and team, they can probably keep at it till they are in their 50's. And to think just nearly a decade ago, the horrendous "2Fast 2Furious" almost rendered this entire franchise extinct! lolz

    He was also the bad guy in war. Statham and Jet Li. Was a surprisingly good movie to.
