He might not be the next James Bond, but it looks like Idirs Elbas going to be busy for the next few years, anyway.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson, who plays Luke Hobbs in the Fast and Furious films, has just announced that Elba will be joining the cast of Hobbs & Shaw—the franchises upcoming spin-off starring Johnson and Jason Statham.

The actor made the announcement via InstagramA 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, he said in his post.

The black-and-white photo Johnson uploaded on social media shows Elba clad in body armor and armed with a handgun. By the sound of Johnsons post, Elba will be playing a villain named Brixton.

So cool having my brother @idriselba come and play in our sandbox. This one’s been years in the making, Johnson added. As I always say, we either gonna get along or we gonna get it on... and f*** getting along.

From 007 to this. If the way the films treat its A-list villains is any indication of how long Elba will remain with the franchise, then he might be in for the long haul. Whether thats a good or bad thing, were not entirely sure.
