The former wrestler says in an Instagram post that the production for the spin-off will start in September.

AceShowbiz - Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson cannot wait to start shooting his "Fast and Furious" spin-off with director David Leitch because he's been wanting to work with the filmmaker for years. The "Atomic Blonde" moviemaker officially signed on for the action blockbuster last month, and on Sunday, May 13, Johnson shared a photo of himself with Leitch and his co-star Jason Statham, who will reprise his franchise character Deckard Shaw, alongside Dwayne as Luke Hobbs.

"HOBBS & SHAW," Dwayne began the lengthy caption. "Lotta fun w/ (with) my brothas (sic) @jasonstatham & director, @davidmleitch in our production meeting." He went on to reveal he and Jason share a playful partnership, often trading tongue-in-cheek insults, all while Leitch "keeps his poker face knowing he's gonna have the time of his life directing our film."

"Been wanting to work with David for years now," Dwayne admitted. "Very talented and knows how to create and shoot bad a**, cool and FUN characters. He directed JOHN WICK, ATOMIC BLONDE and next week his new movie, DEADPOOL 2 looks to be huge with audiences worldwide."

Promising fans the offshoot project will be worth the wait, he continued, "We have a lot of fun surprises in store with our movie and what an opportunity for us to smartly build out our beloved Fast and Furious franchise with our spinoff. We're pumped to shoot and most importantly, THANK YOU FANS for all the love, support and excitement. Shooting starts this September!"
