Charlize Theron To Rev Up FAST and FURIOUS 8!
Apologizes for the pun.
In what is a big get for the series, Deadline is reporting that Charlize Theron has signed on the dotted line to join the already huge cast for the next installment of the Fast & Furious series. Theron is coming off a great 2015 in which she starred in one of the best received films of 2015 in Mad Max Fury Road as Furiosa. Yes there is some irony in her casting I’m sure. Hitfix is also reporting that Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju will play a henchmen like character and that Charlize Theron will play the main villain.
Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez and the rest of the gang are all expected to return to the global franchise. Shooting reportedly begins next month and is set for an April 14, 2017 release date with Straight Outta Compton’s F Gary Gray behind the directors chair.
