Dwayne Johnson has three films coming in 2017. And now, he’s got three films coming in 2018 too…
Fast & Furious Spin Off: “Maybe it’s a spinoff movie”, suggested Dwayne Johnson on the topic of Hobbs’ future after Fast 8 (via Instagram). It’s also worth mentioning, though, that he also said “Maybe it’s more #FF movies. Or hell maybe Hobbs just gets on his motorcycle and rides off into the sunset never to be seen again.”
But, indeed, the idea of Fast & Furious spin-off movies has been in the ether for a while. “We’re certainly in conversations about how we can expand the franchise now,” said Universal’s Donna Langley back in November 2015. “It’s an ensemble cast and there’s room to bring characters in and out.”
As it stands, though, a solo movie for Johnson’s Hobbs is yet to be officially confirmed. You can bet that important people are talking about it, though.
Journey 3: From The Earth To The Moon: Brad Peyton of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and San Andreas will reunite yet again with Dwayne Johnson for Journey 3: From The Earth To The Moon. An American release date had been set for 16th June 2017, and Josh Hutcherson and Anna Colwell are expected to return alongside The Rock. It’s clearly been postponed, but is still believed to be active.
The last film ended with a book being opened and a dramatic camera swoop up to the moon. Given that and the title of this third instalment, it seems fair to assume this one will have a lunar setting. Also, talk is already afoot regarding a fourth film in the franchise, but that surely depends on how successful this third one is. We’ll keep you posted.
G.I. Joe 3: It looks like a return for The Rock in the G.I. Joe series is in the cards. So much so, that the third movie is reportedly being held up because of him.
Jumanji: Dwayne Johnson (of course), Jack Black and Kevin Hart will star in this reimagining of the classic board-game-based movie. This one too is in post-production, ahead of a release at the end of 2018.
San Andreas 2: Dwayne Johnson is reteaming with director Brad Peyton and the producer Beau Flynn for a second San Andreas movie. Most of the supporting cast are believed to be returning too, but scriptwriter Carlton Cuse will not. This time, the screenplay will come from Neil Widener and Gavin James.
The first San Andreas movie earned an impressive $473 million worldwide in 2015, making it a surprise hit and justifying New Line Cinema’s interest in a sequel. There’s no word of a release date yet, but this one seems fairly certain to us. Expect a more global focus, more earthquakes, and perhaps some more shirking of responsibility from The Rock’s character.
