Finally, Vanessa Kirby rounds out the film's core cast as Shaw's sister, Hattie. Kirby is best known for her roles in Mission Impossible Fallout, Netflix drama series The Crown, and minor roles in flicks like Everest and Jupiter Ascending.


The film's synopsis describes the movie as a buddy cop movie in the style of Lethal Weapon and declares the two former enemies must join forces to stop a bio-threat from being unleashed by the anarchist Brixton.

Directed by David Leitch from a script by Chris Morgan, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Eiza Gonzalez and Roman Reigns. It is scheduled to be released on August 2.
