Jason Statham Says “It’s a Godsend” Dwayne Johnson Never Sent Him to the Hospital filming ‘Fast 8’

With “Fate of the Furious” less than a week away, this action superstar talks about his expertise in fighting scenes and taking on Dwayne Johnson.

The eighth installment of the action-packed Fast and Furious franchise is almost here, which means plenty of media time for the film’s stars. 

Jason Statham recently was on the Jim and Sam Show and dished on some of his fight scenes with Dwayne Johnson and his passion for action movies in general. Luckily for Statham, he described "The Rock"’s fight choreography skills as “extremely precise, he’s just so relaxed, he’s just a diamond to work with.”

Johnson also had a few things to add about his experience working with Statham during these fight scenes. 

Here is a clip of the fight that Statham was referencing from the last movie in the interview.

From the already-released clips, there will be a jail fight scene, where both "The Rock" and Statham show off their incredible skills. 

The F. Gary Gray-directed film Fate of the Furious will be released this Friday.
