The spinoff will see its title characters enter an unlikely partnership to face Idris Elba's mysterious villain, Brixton, in an adventure that spans Europe including England, Russia and Ukraine.

In addition to Brixton, the upcoming film will introduce more new characters to the popular action movie franchise including Eiza Gonzalez's Madam M, who leads an all-woman team of specialists, and Vanessa Kirby as Hattie Shaw, Deckard and Owen Shaw's younger sister. The spinoff has been in principal photography since this past September in preparation for an August release.
