charlize theron, fast 8

The next chapter of the FAST & FURIOUS has secured its villain, and she can be a bit Furiosa herself. 

Charlize Theron has officially signed on to join FAST 8, serving as the film's villain, something F. Gary Gray and Chris Morgan have been hoping to make a reality for a number of months. Developing the new baddie for an actress this time around, crosshairs have been set on Theron for awhile, hoping that the nature of the role (and the money offered) would be enough to lure her into the franchise that has become like a fine wine - better with age. 

Theron didn't want to commit yet, even with an early offer on the table, until she received a finished script. However, once everything seemed to look good to her, it was only a matter of making FAST 8 work within her busy schedule. Those arrangements have now been made and she is a go. 

This will be the first time a woman has had the opportunity to square off against Dom and his family/crew, so it'll be interesting to see how that dynamic plays out, particularly in the action sequences. I previously wouldn't have anticipated seeing Theron throw down against Vin Diesel, but after watching her dish out a handy ass-beating to Tom Hardy in MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, anything is possible. 

Also joining the FAST 8 cast is Kristofer Hivju, who plays Tormund Giantsbane (the Wilding with the phenomenal beard beyond the Wall), on HBO's GAME OF THRONES. Hivju is expected to play one of Theron's main henchman, which fits him well.

FAST 8 is scheduled for release on April 14, 2017.

Awesome!!

A great actress, I hope that they let her absolutely chew scenery and give her some kick ass action scenes. Charlize has major action credibility after Fury Road, this just pushed my interest level very high and has me excited to see how they utilize her against Vin and Rock in the action sequences. Off topic, I want her Fury Road costar,!Mad Max himself Tom Hardy to finish out this series and be the final bad guy if they do end the franchise at film #10! Oh and let George Miller direct #10

Kinda lazy casting but she'll kill it. What happened to Statham's character? I was assuming we'd deal with his family more, parents, sister, and it'd be family vs family

Cool casting. We're getting close to a The Italian Job reunion here. Which is funny, since wasn't Fast Five originally developed from an idea for The Brazilian Job, a proposed sequel to The Italian Job?

Diesel will probably fight the Shaw brothers. She'll probably end up exchanging fistcuffs with Michelle Rodriguez's character. And then they'll finish the scene with Letty kicking Theron's ass and uttering some one liner that ends with the word "Bitch."

Hey I love these films, they're complete guilty pleasures. But I have no idea how much longer they can stretch this franchise. As long as they don't do some sort Avengers thing...oh wait..nevermind. As long as they don't do some sort of "in space"

She worked with F. Gary Gray on another film alongside Statham.

Plenty of reunions abound here.
