Leitch is excited to make Hobbs and Deckard buddy film.

Deadpool 2 director David Leitch chatted with IGN about his upcoming Fast and Furious spinoff, starring Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs, and Jason Statham’s Deckard. Leitch has been keeping busy, with his latest film, Deadpool 2 hitting theaters this week. The movie is poised to make £350 million at the worldwide box office.

He’s also onboard to direct an adaptation of Ubisoft’s popular video game series, The Division, which he hopes will break the video game movie curse.
