Roman Reigns has been out of action since October, and he’s been focused on his battle with leukemia.

It’s not clear at this point when fans will be seeing Roman back in the ring, but they will be able to see the former Universal Champion in The Rock’s Fast and Furious spin-off movie Hobbs & Shaw.

The Rock revealed that Roman will be playing his brother in the movie when he posted the following on Instagram:

“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.
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.
His perseverance and humility battling this challenge has inspired our entire family as well as millions around the world in our beloved @WWE Universe.
Can’t wait to see the “Big Dog” return back to the ring – his positive & focused mindset to return is straight up next level.
Til’ then, this sacred Samoan ground you stand on is nourished with our ancestors blood.
Today, we nourish it with yours.
#WelcomeRomanReigns

#HobbsAndShaw
THIS SUMMER 🔥💪🏾”

Hobbs & Shaw is set to hit theaters on July 26, 2019.
