It seems that there is a possibility that Dwayne Johnson will not be appearing in the movie Fast and Furious 7. Dwayne played Hobbs in Fast Five and has reprised the role for Fast and Furious 6 but it looks like it could be the end of the line for his involvement in the franchise.
Vin Diesel, who plays Dom in the Fast and Furious movies, recently claimed that shooting for Fast and Furious 7 would be starting this summer. If that is the case, then Dwayne Johnson will not be in the movie, as he will be shooting his new film Hercules.
Johnson explained, "It’s not possible for me because I’m shooting Hercules this summer starting in 6 weeks in Budapest, so, possible for them I’m not too sure. I haven’t heard anything about that and I’m pretty sure I would have gotten a phone call pretty early in the morning if that was the real plan. Not quite too sure though."
With that said, there has been talk of a spin-off for his character Hobbs, which makes this all a bit too difficult to believe. With the movie scheduled to be released next year, it could be a case of a smaller role for Hobbs or shooting could be delayed until the Fall or Winter, with a late 2014 release date. Watch this space.
