When Dwayne Johnson joined the cast of Fast Five, talk quickly started about his character, Luke Hobbs, getting his own spinoff film. Producer Neal Moritz said back in January of 2011 that they were “about to” get a script together for the Hobbs movie, and Johnson himself has been keen on the idea. Johnson has a key role in this year’s Fast & Furious 6, as his DSS agent enlists Vin Diesel’s car-thieving crew to help him combat a rival team of thieves in Europe in return for Diesel and Co.’s full pardons. Now Johnson has provided an update on the standalone Hobbs movie, suggesting it might come in between Fast 6 and the inevitable Fast & Furious 7.

Speaking with Empire, here’s what Johnson had to say about the prospect:

“[We could see the Hobbs movie] possibly after this one, after the next one. Possibly. I’m not quite too sure, I know that’s the goal and we continue to build that character and have him take shape. But yes, I can’t wait.”

Nothing is concrete at this time, but it certainly sounds like a Hobbs standalone film is still very much part of the plan for the Fast & Furious franchise. Fast & Furious 6 hits theaters on May 24th.
