The next Fast & Furious film you’ll see the legendary lawman in will be the HOBBS movie that will serve as a fresh, new chapter & set up for FASTX: Part II

Last summer Vin and I put all the past behind us. We’ll lead with brotherhood and resolve – and always take care of the franchise, characters & FANS that we love.

I’ve built my career on an “ Audience First” mentality and that will always serve as my
North Star ⭐️

Congratulations to my Fast Family & Universal Studios on the global success of FAST X and as always, Hobbs &
are motivated to help take the Fast franchise to new and exciting places for fans worldwide.
