Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is wanted for a 'Fast and Furious' spin-off

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is wanted for a 'Fast and Furious' spin-off.

The 44-year-old actor has been a fan favourite since his character Luke Hobbs joined the franchise in 'Fast Five', and Universal Pictures are now hoping to make a movie about him, which would also feature Jason Statham's Decker Shaw and series newcomer Charlize Theron's Cipher, who made her debut in the new 'Fate of the Furious' movie.

According to Variety, Chris Morgan will remain attached to his characters and will pen the script, though the idea is still in preliminary stages and nothing has been written as yet.

The three cast members have also not signed any contracts for the project.

The spin-off has reportedly been in the work since as far back as 'Fast Five' because of Hobb's instant popularity, though there were no plans on how to move it forward until Statham joined the franchise for the seventh installment and had instant chemistry with Johnson.

And Theron is a late addition to the mooted project, with bosses having seen how well her character has been received.

The spin-off is expected to revolve around Hobbs and Shaw teaming up to go after Cipher.
