Roman Reigns to play The Rock's brother in 'Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw'



Earlier this week, we noted that Roman Reigns has been spending time in Hawaii with his family. It turns out that at least part of the reason why he's there is that he is filming for the "Fast & Furious" spinoff titled "Hobbs & Shaw" and he will be playing Hobbs (played by The Rock) brother.

The Rock wrote the following on Instagram:

"The brothers roar.

A lil’ HOBBS & SHAW exclusive.

Good times droppin’ sweat and spillin’ blood with my family, Roman Reigns who’ll be playing my brother in our FAST & FURIOUS UNIVERSE.

I’m very proud of his focus, effort and authentic performance in our movie for his very first time on film.

I’m also very grateful to spend this quality time with my cousin here in the islands as he takes life one day at a time to recover from leukemia.

His perseverance and humility battling this challenge has inspired our entire family as well as millions around the world in our beloved @WWE Universe.

Can’t wait to see the “Big Dog” return back to the ring - his positive & focused mindset to return is straight up next level.

Til’ then, this sacred Samoan ground you stand on is nourished with our ancestors blood.

Today, we nourish it with yours.

For those of you that have asked about Reigns' health following his leukemia diagnosis, his friends say he is doing well. Check out the video below to see Braun Strowman give an update on Reigns:
