Rumored ever since his noteworthy performance in 2011's Fast Five, Universal Pictures looks like it's gearing up to give Dwayne Johnson his own spinoff feature, following his DSS Agent Luke Hobbs. In a new interview with Empire, Johnson says that the solo film could hit even before a Fast & Furious 7.

ď[It could arrive] possibly after this one or after the next one, possibly," Johnson says. "Iím not quite too sure. I know thatís the goal and we continue to build that character and have him take shape. But yes, I canít wait.Ē

The new film, Fast & Furious 6, meanwhile, hits theaters on May 24. The action thriller also stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Elsa Pataky, Luke Evans and Gina Carano.

Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian's (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin's empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.

Meanwhile, Hobbs has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
