Furious 8 will bring back Dwayne Johnson
Last month, Vin Diesel took the stage at CinemaCon to announce that he and the folks at Universal Pictures are currently developing “Fast & Furious 8” to be released in April 2017.
Unfortunately, he didn't add any details about who else would be returning for another ride... but now, Dwayne Johnson has confirmed that he will indeed be back to star in the next movie.
When The Nerd Report caught up with Johnson this past weekend, and asked him if he would be coming back, the actor gave the reporter a less than 10 word response, but he most definitely responded in the affirmative: “Of course. Can't go on without Hobbs.”
In the last three “Fast & Furious” films, Dwayne Johnson has played DSS Federal Agent Luke Hobbes, who has established a nice record of being allied with Vin Diesel's Dom and his crew... after they first squared off as adversaries.
