The Fast and the Furious spin-off Hobbs and Shaw is set to hit screens in August, much to the delight of fans of the franchise.
The new flick stars Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw - earlier this year it was revealed that Idris Elba would also be making an appearance as international terrorist Brixton.
Now, it's rumoured that Ryan Reynolds will be appearing in the movie.
According to entertainment website We Got This Covered, a 'trusted source' has revealed the Deadpool star will feature in the movie as a CIA agent who has a bit of history with Hobbs and Shaw.
And let's be honest, it doesn't get much more reliable than a completely anonymous source who is referred to as 'trusted', does it?
Whether Reynolds makes an appearance or not, the film already has a pretty solid cast.
It's this solid casting that Johnson reckons will make the movie a hit - he has previously highlighted the 'biting chemistry' between him and Statham.
Speaking in December, he said: "We started talking about the potential of a spin-off really after Fast Five.
"I'm really happy that we were not only able to crack the creative and really lean into the relationship and chemistry - the biting chemistry between myself and Jason Statham - but I think that also you find out that it's something the fans have been wanting for some time now."
Johnson's cousin - and fellow former WWE star - Roman Reigns will also make an appearance in the upcoming movie.
Sharing a photo of the pair while on set, Johnson wrote: "The brothers' roar. A lil' HOBBS & SHAW exclusive.
"Good times droppin' sweat and spillin' blood with my family, Roman Reigns who'll be playing my brother in our Fast & Furious universe. I'm very proud of his focus, effort and authentic performance in our movie for his very first time on film."
Reigns is set to play the younger brother of Hobbs.
Johnson has also said that this spin-off doesn't signal the end for the movie series. He explained to MTV: "The plan has always been for the Fast and Furious universe to grow and expand.
"As of now, we're not in Fast Nine because they're getting ready to start shooting. But who knows with Fast 10? And down the road, you never know."
Hobbs and Shaw will hit cinemas on 2 August 2019.
