Vanessa Kirby joins the cast of the Fast & Furious spinoff

The Crown actress Vanessa Kirby has joined the cast of Dwayne Johnson’s Fast & Furious spinoff film.

The film will see Johnson teaming up with Jason Statham’s character for an all-new adventure set within the Fast cinematic universe. Kirby will play the part of an MI-5 agent who is the sister of Jason Statham’s character.

Deadpool 2 director David Leitch is set to helm the film.

Fast and Furious architect Chris Morgan penned the script with production set to commence this fall. Plot details are vague, but the central idea is that the film would see the often-at-odds duo team up. Johnson, Statham, and “Fast and Furious” producer Neal Moritz will produce.

It’s set to hit theaters on July 26, 2019.
