But after what Dwayne Johnson just said about Jason surely appearing in future instalments of the franchise, we just can't help but feel super excited.

Johnson reportedly told MTV News that "the plan has always been for the Fast and Furious universe to grow and expand". In it, Johnson's Hobbs sits upon a hefty hog, which is a far cry from one of my favorite Fast & Furious vehicles ever, the Gurkha.

"A spinoff of The Fate of the Furious, focusing on Johnson's US Diplomatic Security Agent Luke Hobbs forming an unlikely alliance with Statham's Deckard Shaw".

After eight films that have amassed nearly $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

But fans of The Rock's "Luke Hobbs" character can rest assured knowing both he and Jason Statham have every intention of re-joining the general cast for Fast & Furious 10 somewhere down the line.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is coming to theaters on August 2, 2019.

While some may suspect the decision to stay out of the new film is actually down to the Rock's feud with fellow star Vin Diesel, Johnson claimed there was "no ill will" between the two.

It's thanks to a "biting chemistry" with the action star Statham, who he says they've been thinking about it around 2013 time.

'And then when Fast 6 came around, that's when we started having real talks about it, but then the challenge was just finding out what the creative could be and how we cracked that.
