Here are the first photos of Idris Elba on set filming the “Fast and Furious” spin-off.
The actor was spotted on set in Glasgow on Friday, wearing all-black fighting gear and doing an action sequence. According to several local reports, the streets have been closed near the location until filming is done on Sunday.
Just months ago, it was announced the actor would be joining the “Hobbs & Shaw” cast as the main villain.

I learned a long time ago (when I was a very sinful eyebrow raising villainous man in the crazy world of pro wrestling;) that heroes are only as great as their greatest villains. A pleasure to introduce the man himself @idriselba we brought in to our Fast & Furious franchise to wreak havoc, hell and mayhem on our heroes HOBBS & SHAW. The name: BRIXTON. The record: UNDEFEATED. The promise: SHOWDOWN OF ALL SHOWDOWNS. So cool having my brother @idriselba come and play in our sandbox. This one’s been years in the making!! As I always say, we either gonna get along or we gonna get it on… and fuck getting along 😈 #BRIXTON #TheConsequenceAgent #HellRaiser HOBBS & SHAW SUMMER 2019 📸 @hhgarcia41
Although we got a sneak peek of Elba in his gear from co-star The Rock earlier this month, this is the first time we’ve seen him during production.
Besides Rock and Elba, the “Fast and Furious” spin-off features Jason Statham and Vanessa Kirby.
The film hits theaters in August 2019.
