Dwayne Johnson is giving his fans enough reasons to get excited and scared at the same time. The wrestler turned actor posted a video on Instagram on Friday (22 July) to give all of us a sneak peek into a major jail scene from Fast and Furious 8 where his character Agent Hobbs can be seen ranting against Vin Diesel's Dom Toretto
"He preaches love, he preaches family and he preaches heart," an aggressive Hobbs can be seen telling the camera in the video hinting at a major misunderstanding between the two major characters of the movie.
He also praises his character in the eighth sequel to the action thriller franchise. "I know you guys can see it... I have so much damn FUN playin' the character of HOBBS. A man who lives by a code of ethics, but who will also rip your throat out and give it back to you just so you can apologize for pissin' him off," he says.
Referring himself as the Iceman in Fast 8, Johnson teased a major prison breakout and an impending retaliation against Dom and his crew.
"For years our #FastAndFurious writer Chris Morgan, our @sevenbucksprod's producer Hiram Garcia and myself would always talk about how insanely FUN FOR THE FANS a "Hobbs prison breakout" scene would be - wrecking every fool that's in his way. Well, that day has come, which is why I'm completely iced in my veins and amped out of my f**king mind in this video and clearly in need of a horse tranquilizer. Let Toretto and his friends preach family and love... Not HOBBS. The Iceman cometh. And he doesn't f***eth around" he captioned the video.
The Rock has previously released another video teasing the 'prison scene of all prison scenes'. The cast and crew of the movie are leaving no stone unturned to keep fans updated.
On-set videos and pictures are being shared on social media to keep the fan frenzy fresh till the movie hits the theaters. Some critics, see the move as a marketing tactics to divert fan's attention from the Paul Walker void and a look forward for a fresh approach in story telling with the eighth sequel.
Directed by F Gary Grey, Fast and Furious 8 is scheduled to premiere in April 2017.
