Jason Statham, Vanessa Kirby and Idris Elba are also amongst the cast of the film, as too are Roman Reigns, Eiza Gonzalez, Eddie Marsan, Cliff Curtis and Helen Mirren.
The film, which has just wrapped shooting ready for its August release, is directed by David Leitch and written by Chris Morgan.
In related news, Johnson has confirmed that his character of Luke Hobbs will not appear in the upcoming Fast and Furious 9. That movie is kicking off shooting very soon.
Speaking to MTV, Johnson said: “The plan has always been for the Fast and Furious universe to grow and expand. As of now, we’re not in Fast 9 because they’re getting ready to start shooting. But who knows, with Fast 10 and down the road, you never know. Because Look, at the end of the day, the truth is there’s still unfinished business between Hobbs and Dom. It’s unfinished.”
