Director David Leitch is in negotiations to helm the untitled Fast and Furious spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. The film will focus on the characters Luke Hobbs (Johnson), a Diplomatic Security Service agent and Deckard Shaw (Statham), a criminal mastermind and an assassin, reported Variety.

Chris Morgan wrote the script, making it his sixth instalment in the franchise. Leitch came into the limelight after the success of "John Wick", which he co-directed with Chad Stahelski, and last year's "Atomic Blonde", starring Charlize Theron. He is currently awaiting the release of his latest directorial venture, "Deadpool 2", starring Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin.
