British star Jason Statham has revealed that the David Leitch-directed 'Hobbs And Shaw' will be "f***ing hardcore"

Jason Statham says the David Leitch-directed 'Hobbs And Shaw' will be "f***ing hardcore".

The 51-year-old actor is set to star alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in the eagerly awaited spin-off of the 'Fast & Furious' franchise, and Jason has given fans an insight into what they can expect from the movie.

He shared: "I think Dave Leach's taste is a little more grounded and a little darker. If you see 'Atomic Blonde', and it is just superb ... I think he's looking to do something that doesn't look exactly like a 'Fast' movie although it's the 'Fast' characters.

"He's trying to do his own thing with it and give it a real sense of credibility."

Asked how the upcoming movie will differ from the money-spinning franchise, Jason added: "I think Dave is going to get this one gritty, real, and f***ing hardcore."

Jason also revealed he's looking forward to being reunited with Dwayne, saying that their on-screen characters are like "oil and water".

Speaking about their interactions in the most-recent 'Fast' movie, he told Collider: "I love Dwayne. We've got a great sort of thing going. Those two characters work like oil and water. It's the perfect combination of people.

"We had a couple of scenes ... one particular scene that was just f***ing great. I can't talk too deeply about it because it never made the movie and I don't know why. China got to see a part of that."

Hobbs (Johnson) and Shaw (Statham) reluctantly team up to stop nasty Brixton (Elba) from doing bad things. It should have been a hoot, but while the two leads have proven comedy chops, a sketchy script doesn’t give them enough to do and there’s a general lack of imagination. The tank is half empty on this one.
