The character played by Dwayne  “The Rock” Johnson in the latest Fast and Furious flicks may be getting his own spinoff film or TV series, which means he’ll have a bigger role in the upcoming Fast 8 that’s currently filming.

On Instagram, The Rock teased his character Luke Hobbs with some heady language about how he wanted the role to become more gritty and serious. During this first week of filming, he hinted that there may be more in store for Hobbs down the road… or there may not be anything.

Maybe it’s a spinoff movie. Maybe it’s more #FF movies,” Johnson said in the post. 

“Or hell maybe Hobbs just gets on his motorcycle and rides off into the sunset never to be seen again.”

Johnson himself has suggested that he is working on a spinoff series related to the Fast and Furious franchise headed not to the silver screen but to television. 

It remains to be seen just what will happen, but it is encouraging to hear from Johnson about how he wants to up his role in the most car-oriented series currently in Hollywood.
