Roman Reigns The Rock

Roman Reigns is set to make his big screen debut this summer. Reigns has joined the cast of Hobbs and Shaw, the Fast and Furious spinoff movie starring his cousin Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The Rock broke the news on Instagram on Friday. In a message that accompanied two photos of Reigns on set, Rock wrote, “Good times droppin’ sweat and spillin’ blood with my family, @RomanReigns 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 has been off WWE television since October, when he shocked the world by announcing he is battling a recurrence of leukemia, a blood cancer. Rock also addressed Reigns’ health, saying that he’s inspired by Reigns’ perseverance and humility.

“I’m also very grateful to spend this quality time with my cousin here in the islands as he takes life one day at a time to recover from leukemia,” said The Rock. “His perseverance and humility battling this challenge has inspired our entire family as well as millions around the world in our beloved WWE Universe.”

Hobbs and Shaw hits theaters August 2nd, 2019.

Below, check out The Rock’s full statement and two photos of Roman Reigns on the set of Hobbs and Shaw:
