This is Brixton Lore. #hobbsandshaw I had an incredible experience bringing him to life with @davidmleitch (freaking great director) and @therock @jasonstatham and @vanessa__kirby. Brixton is a ghost- rebuilt beyond human capabilities and completely focused on the job at hand. A gift of a role.
Idris’ character is a genetically enhanced soldier who has an army to aid him in his battles, making the second trailer filled with even more intense action scenes that’s set to come.
“It was a really cool film to make, working with Dwayne and Jason, who make high-octane films quite a bit, way more than me,” Idris previously said when discussing his role in the movie.
“It was great to watch them work and learn from them. David Leitch, the director, was a complete draw for me; I love him and I think he’s a fantastic director. I was given free reign to make a character that hopefully sits in the zeitgeist of the Fast world, but just feels a little bit elevated. My character borders on the lines of scientific and I think that is quite an exciting area for the Fast franchise to go. This guy is a mean motherf—er, and I had a lot of fun playing him.”
