Johnson took to Twitter on Thursday to confirm the news that Elba, 45, will be starring as a "baaaaaad man" in Hobbs and Shaw, an upcoming The Fast and the Furious spin-off movie. The project, which centers on the pair of characters from the main film franchise, is set to arrive in theaters on August 2, 2019. No other details about his character have been revealed, but he will be going up against both special agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and criminal mastermind Deckard Shaw (Statham).

That's the tentative title given to Universal's Fast and Furious spinoff, which now has Deadpool 2 helmer David Leitch behind the wheel and franchise architect Chris Morgan on script duties. Elba's newest project, the comedy series Turn Up Charlie, is now in pre-production.

Little is known about what Elba's role will entail, but the script is now being worked on by Chris Morgan who's written every Fast entry since Tokyo Drift.
