The Rock’s Fast and Furious Spin-Off Begins Shooting This Fall

A new report suggests that the Fast and Furious Spin-Off starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will be directed by Deadpool 2 helmer David Leitch and production will begin on September 6th, 2018. It was recently announced that Leitch was the frontrunner for the director’s spot and that looks to be true at this point in time. The Hobbs and Shaw movie has been highly anticipated since it was announced, and it looks like the July 26th, 2019 release date will remain in place.

The September production start date makes sense for the Fast and Furious spin-off since Dwayne Johnson will have wrapped production on The Jungle Cruise in August and that will give the actor a chance to take a breather before jumping into another action movie. Fans of the Fast and Furious are excited for the spin-off, but some are angry that Fast and Furious 9 has been delayed, most likely due to the spin-off. However, the movie still does not have a director attached either, so the spin-off might not be the main reason.

The Hobbs and Shaw movie has been criticized by Tyrese Gibson after the Fast and Furious actor called out Dwayne Johnson for being selfish and looking out for his own best interests while pursuing the spin-off that fans have been clamoring for since Fast and Furious 5 when Johnson’s Luke Hobbs was introduced. Gibson and Johnson went back and forth in their feud, which was heavily reported about in the press, but it has supposedly been squashed according to Tyrese Gibson who said back in November that he had spoken to some of Dwayne Johnson’s associates and everything is good now.

Dwayne Johnson is riding the huge wave of success that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has brought to him and the rest of the cast and crew. The movie has earned nearly a billion dollars at the box office thanks to the quirky cast and the power of the Jumanji franchise. The sequel is still in theaters and will be released on Blu-ray on March 20th. Dwayne Johnson was the second highest earing actor of 2017 and basically, anything that he touches turns into a success, meaning the Hobbs and Shaw movie is truly a no-brainer for the studio.

While the September production start date for the Fast and Furious spin-off makes sense, nothing has been officially announced by the studio in terms of director David Leitch or a time for filming to begin. Dwayne Johnson is pretty active on social media to interact with his fans, so if this report proves to be true, expect some announcement by the actor soon. For now, you have plenty of time to go back and re-watch all of the Fast and Furious movies to prepare for Hobbs and Shaw. This report originated from the Omega Underground.

Rainbow Documentary Trailer Takes Kesha on a Crazy, Emotional Ride

Nearly one year ago, popstar Kesha released her critically acclaimed Rainbow album, and now she’s releasing a documentary, which is also called Rainbow. The film chronicles the last year of Kesha’s life in the recording studio making the record and on the road promoting it. While her professional life was soaring, her personal life was falling apart, and she attributes the album and documentary as a therapeutic process for her. However, this isn’t just a normal documentary, infused with studio and live footage are psychedelic vignettes, which help to convey Kesha’s mindset at various times.

Kesha’s Rainbow documentary will be released on August 10th, exclusively through Apple Music. The film is her directorial debut and features never-before-seen footage while she was creating in a very dark place. In releasing the movie, Kesha hopes that it will inspire others to “never give up,” and reach out if they need help. She had this to say about the Rainbow documentary.

“Making Rainbow the album was such a therapeutic process and given the opportunity to turn it into a three-dimensional piece of art has helped me find even deeper healing and catharsis. I hope this film inspires others to never give up even if you feel full of hurt or lost, because after the storm comes a rainbow. Depression, anxiety and mental illness are things we all need to talk about more, and there is no shame in asking for help. Making the decision to work on yourself is the bravest thing you can do. I hope this film helps bring light and love to everyone.”

To promote the upcoming release of her Rainbow movie, Kesha and Apple Music have released a short trailer. There’s shots of her in the studio writing and recording the Rainbow album as well as scenes of her powerful performance at the Grammys during the height of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. There’s also some footage of the previously mentioned psychedelic clips, which feature some pretty intense situations like falling into a dark hole, drowning, and a shot that looks like she has her mouth gagged. Early on in the trailer, she explains her state of mind.

“Sometimes things feel like they’re too much to handle. You may be able to pull it together and put on a front in front of others. But inside you’re trapped, suffocating slowly.”

The Rainbow documentary looks like it will be a pretty brutal take on the last year of Kesha’s life. The singer has been battling producer Dr. Luke since 2013 in a series of lawsuits in which she alleges that the producer sexually, physically, and mentally abused her, as well as other artists over the years. She also implies that Dr. Luke has kept her from getting other work, essentially blackballing her from the music industry.

Kesha’s Rainbow documentary was made with her brother, Lagen Serbert, who is a filmmaker. The two have collaborated on many of Kesha’s music videos over the last handful of years as well. While there are moments of lighthearted fun in the Rainbow trailer, it pretty much looks like it’s going to be a heavy experience for viewers to take in. You can watch the trailer for Kesha’s Rainbow below, thanks to the Beat 1 Apple Music YouTube channel.
