Posted on the actor's Instagram account, the behind-the-scenes photo shows Johnson as no-holds barred lawman Luke Hobbs wearing a traditional Samoan outfit in the midst of a ceremony presumably preparing for the film's conflict.

This sacred Samoan ground you stand on is nourished with our ancestors blood. Tonight, we nourish it with yours. Here’s a lil’ exclusive from set of HOBBS & SHAW, our FAST & FURIOUS spin off film coming this summer. I’ve been waiting for this my entire career. This is more than a movie to me - our culture & warrior mana is very real. More to come. Now they bleed. #London #Russia #Chernobyl #SAMOA HOBBS & SHAW @@hhgarcia41📸
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.
Directed by David Leitch from a script by Chris Morgan, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby and Eiza Gonzalez. It is scheduled to be released on August 2.
