hobbs and shaw cast eddie marsan

David Leitch really likes working with character actor Eddie Marsan. So much so that he’s gone ahead and added him to the Hobbs and Shaw cast. Marsan has appeared in Leitch’s two previous films, and will have a “small but significant” role in the Fast and the Furious spin-off. The film features Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham punching each other and frowning. Other stuff probably happens in the movie too, I guess.

David Leitch interview

David Leitch, the co-founder of 87Eleven, has just finished directing (and co-directing) three of the most notable American action movies of the last few years. The former stuntman brings his eye for action and visually appealing worlds, as shown by Atomic Blonde and (his uncredited work on) John Wick, to Deadpool 2. Leitch not only takes the franchise’s action and scope to another level, but also adds a little more personality to Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and friends, including newcomers Cable (Josh Brolin), Domino (Zazzie Beetz), and Russell (Julian Dennison).

Originally, Leitch was interested in developing the X-Force movie, but after a few weeks of working on his pitch, Deadpool 2 came his way. After a warm reception from audiences and critics, we had the opportunity to speak with Leitch on the movie’s opening day about crafting the sequel’s action, how the first movie influenced some of his choices, and one X-Men easter egg that was cut from the movie.

Below, check out our David Leitch interview, which contains a few spoilers.
