Fast 8 to feature a female villain; Charlize Theron being eyed

After seven films worth of Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, and the rest of their merry band battling XY baddies, the FAST & FURIOUS franchise is looking to introduce a "fierce female villain" in the upcoming FAST 8. Although the script is not yet complete, Deadline reports that FAST 8 director F. Gary Gray and screenwriter Chris Morgan have begun developing the franchise's newest villain and they already have their eye on who they would like to take on the role, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD's Charlize Theron.

Charlize Theron hasn't been made an offer yet nor has she read a script, so it's obviously too soon to start jumping to conclusions, but imagining Theron taking on Vin Diesel and his crew is very exciting. Production on FAST 8 is set to get underway later this year and Deadline indicates that Theron does have an opening in her schedule which would allow her to take part in the film. Charlize Theron has worked with F. Gary Gray before in THE ITALIAN JOB, so assuming Theron likes the script and wants to be a part of the FAST & FURIOUS franchise, I have a feeling that she'd be welcomed with open arms. Vin Diesel recently confirmed the release dates for the next three entries in the FAST & FURIOUS franchise, with FAST 8 arriving on April 14, 2017, and the untitled ninth and tenth entries hitting theaters on April 19, 2019 and April 2, 2021.

If F. Gary Gray and Chris Morgan are unable to sign Theron up, which actress would you like to see take the role?

Extra Tidbit: Hopefully Vin Diesel hasn't forgotten that Helen Mirren really wants to be in a Fast & Furious film.

Wonder what excuse they are going to use for the fact she cannot fight one on one with Vin or Dwayne. I mean these movies are pure schlock but they always have the one on one hero villain showdown. Theron is definitely a bad ass but at some point suspension of disbelief just breaks.

If Charlize Theron can't be in the movie, why not Sigourney Weaver?

I wonder if she would be apart of the Shaw clan. I mean, Jason Statham won't be locked up for very long so, perhaps she's sister that breaks him out??

My thought exactly !
And so, the (rumored) Helen Mirren part would be the mother of the tribe ?
They are heading toward a family vs 'family' feud for the last rilogy, then, I guess !

No Helen Mirren?

Maybe they decided they couldn't make it organic.

There's another reunion happening with her and Statham who was also in The Italian Job.
