Little sisters are such a pain in the neck, especially for Jason Statham in the upcoming "Hobbs & Shaw."
On Instagram, Dwayne Johnson shared a first look image of co-star Vanessa Kirby from the "Fast and Furious" spinoff. Kirby (coming off "Mission: Impossible - Fallout") plays Hattie Shaw, sister to Statham's Deckard Shaw. While her brother is a former baddie assassin, she's a "bad ass MI6 Operative," as Johnson says.
The movie pairs Deckard with unlikely ally Luke Hobbs. The two weren't exactly friends in the "Fast and Furious" films, but will have a common enemy in Idris Elba, who plays an international terrorist leader. And it seems lil' sis is on board to help take this criminal mastermind down.
“It tortures [Shaw] that his sister Hattie is kickin’ it with Hobbs. His pain makes me very happy,” Johnson says. “But what makes me happier is welcoming this crazy talented actress and cool chick to our movie. Havin’ a blast together. Building out the franchise step by step.”
"Hobbs & Shaw" opens in theater August 2, 2019.
