Nothing worth having comes easy.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is reaping the fruits of his hard work as he got himself an eye-popping physical transformation as part of his preparation for the upcoming movie, Hobbs and Shaw.
The 46-year old actor will reprise his role as the Diplomatic Security Service agent, Luke Hobbs, in the upcoming The Fast and the Furious spinoff. Jason Statham will co-star with Johnson and will play Deckard Shaw to form the dynamic duo. Director David Leitch guaranteed that the movie will be fun as it will explore the relationship and expand the worlds of Hobbs and Shaw.
“There’s obviously some of the DNA of the Fast universe. But what we really want to do is create something fresh and different for these characters, and dive into their world. Hobbs and Shaw come from the agent-and-spy world. It’s obviously about their banter and their relationship, but it’s more about expanding their world and their connections andcreating a family in a slightly different universe. It’s going to be fun.”
According to Leitch, the spinoff will be more grounded as it will serve as the beginning of a new franchise.
“It’s an origin story, in a sense. It’s not an origin story, but we’re starting a franchise. So, we want it to be a little bit more grounded, a little bit more character-centric. We’re going to set up the stakes for these guys and their relationship, but we’re also going to have some great set pieces and some action that you’d expect from that type of franchise.
Discipline and Diet
For a project with such gravity, Johnson wants to be in his best shape for this new movie, just like what he offered to his fans in his previous films. After more than three months of physical preparation, ‘The Rock’ reveealed that he is a 260-lb beast now, ready to take the franchise to greater heights.
He took to Instagram and shared a jaw-dropping shirtles photo, which showed how hard he has worked to be physically ready for his new movie. He wrote:
“After 18 weeks of disciplined diet & intense training, here’s where I landed my carcass for shooting my FAST & FURIOUS spin-off HOBBS & SHAW. Always room for improvements, but not too bad for a scarred up surgically repaired Brahma Bull who’s injuries always tell the story.”
“Huge THANKS to my strength and conditioning coach @daverienzi for his masterful strategies that’s constantly shifting daily based on how I’m looking/feeling to achieve our goals.
THANKS to EVERYONE in my inner circle (including the NASA scientists 😉) who support the big picture – my diet, training, health & wellness, balance, consistency and execution.”
