Hey there, Hattie.
Thanks to an Instagram post by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, we have the very first look at Vanessa Kirby's character in Hobbs & Shaw, the upcoming Fast and furious franchise spin-off movie.
The sister of Jason Statham's expert assassin Deckard Shaw, Hattie is with MI6 agent with an edge – but Johnson had even more interesting things to say about her.
Johnson, who portrays himself with a rose-patterned skirt and a man wearing a hat swiping across the upper arm and forehead.
"Building out our Fast & Furious franchise step by step. In our spin-off, HOBBS & SHAW, I have a nice new friend. Meet 'Hattie Shaw' played by my homegirl, @vanessa__kirby, "Johnson in the caption of the photo." Hattie loves the following / Long walks on the beach. Being a bad ass MI6 Operative. Drinking tequila with Hobbs. And not in that order. Hattie happens to be the sister of Deckard Shaw, who's played by @jasonstatham. Hattie is kickin 'it with Hobbs. His pain … makes me very happy. "
The actor continued, noting that he's over-the-moon excited about getting to work with Kirby on the David Leitch-directed feature.
"What makes me happier is this crazy talented actress and cool chick to our movie." Havin 'a blast together, "said Johnson, wrapping up the caption the hashtags #HattieShaw, # MI6BadAss, and # TequilaDrinkerWithHobbs followed by a tumbler glass emoji.
Queen Elizabeth's "royal rebel" younger sister, Princess Margaret on Netflix's, is pleased to announce that she has won the accolade The Crown, Kirby is not all about drama, prestige television shows, and serious roles. Like all good actresses, Kirby has dipped her toes in the waters of plenty of genres – most recently taking a stab at action with Mission: Impossible – Fallout, in which she appeared as the black market arms dealer Alanna Mitsopolis, better known as the White Widow. Her experience taking a turn in the Tom Cruise-topped flick wants to serve her well in Hobbs & Shaw, a movie that will undoubtedly feature just as many explosions, heart-racing shoot-outs, insane car chases, death-defying stunts, and an equally nefarious big bad – this is an international terrorist played by everyone's favorite suave Brit, Idris Elba.
So starring Luke Evans and Eddie Marsan, Hobbs & Shaw is due out on August 2, 2019.
