Dwayne Johnson Says Luke Hobbs Spinoff Might "Possibly" Happen After 'Fast & Furious 6'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist March 21, 2013 at 1:30PM

While we wait with a six pack of Red Bull for the vehicular warfare of the summer that is "Fast & Furious 6," it may be that Universal really likes what the The Rock is cooking. The actor, who joined the franchise in "Fast Five," and helped make it a phenomenal worldwide success, is undoubtedly graduating into blockbuster leading-man status. Next week comes "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and Johnson shoots "Hercules" this year with Brett Ratner. So, the idea that the studio might want to give him his own spinoff cars 'n 'splosions movie is pretty much a no-brainer.

Fast & Furious 6 The Rock

While we wait with a six pack of Red Bull for the vehicular warfare of the summer that is "Fast & Furious 6," it may be that Universal really likes what the The Rock is cooking. The actor, who joined the franchise in "Fast Five," and helped make it a phenomenal worldwide success, is undoubtedly graduating into blockbuster leading-man status. Next week comes "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and Johnson shoots "Hercules" this year with Brett Ratner. So, the idea that the studio might want to give him his own spinoff cars 'n 'splosions movie is pretty much a no-brainer.

Catching up with Empire, when asked about a possible spinoff for his character Luke Hobbs, Dwayne Johnson stressed that it could "possibly" happen after "Fast & Furious 6," but that it was a "goal" they were looking at. Hooray for maybes! But surely there's room for two movies with huge dudes, cars, babes and action, no? Vin Diesel doesn't need to do them all, does he?

Of course, it raises the question of if/how this proposed side movie would fit in with "Fast & Furious 7," which, if recent rumors are anything to go by, will openly be teased at the end of 'Furious 6.' But here's a thought: does it even matter? Of all the franchises going right now, the one that certainly doesn't need to be Marvel-ized is this one, so maybe just stick with Hobbs in his own world, doing his thing? Anyway, we'll see.
