The Fast & Furious franchise has been nothing short of spectacular success. One particular film that stands out in the franchise’s illustrious history is its first spin-off, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. Released in 2019, this action-packed film took the beloved characters of Luke Hobbs (played by Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (played by Jason Statham) on a thrilling adventure of their own. With its relentless energy, jaw-dropping stunts, and standout performance, Statham highlighted himself in front of the audience.

The audience loved Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, and have been eagerly waiting for any updates hinting at its sequel. But sadly no positive step has been taken to make the fan’s wish true. Amid all this Jason Statham manages to increase his paycheck. From Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw to Fast X, the Hummingbird star got an additional $2 million in his pay. The Wrath of Man star was paid $15 million for his remarkable performance in the recently released Fast X. It looks like hopping from the spin-off to the mainstream storyline was proven pretty beneficial for the Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre star.

It looks like irrespective of Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel’s rivalry, Statham managed to work both sides to bring a hike in his pay. The Wrath of Man star’s performance in the blockbuster franchise makes any increase in his pay worth it.
