The Rock was recently interviewed by Collider.com. The Rock confirmed that he would be back in Furious 8. He plays the role of “Hobbs.”
“Of course. It can’t go on without Hobbs.” Furious 7 did $1.5 billion in worldwide box office.
“We all are interested in it,” explained The Rock. “I just had a big conversation with the studio. So we’ll see. I still think for me personally we’ve created a little bit of space for him in 7 and the gauge is set for what the audience will want. That’s my take on it, you know, but a lot of other people have to have input.”
Furious 8 will be in theaters on April 14, 2017.
