New details are starting to emerge about Fast & Furious 8 as it has been revealed Charlize Theron will play a villain in the upcoming movie.
Billed as the "greatest adversary ever," Theron will play a mysterious antagonist. Little is known about her role but Variety is reporting the actress was approached early on about the role but held off until the script was finalized by Chris Morgan.
The movie is slated to go into production this summer and will star a number of familiar faces including Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, and Michelle Rodriguez. The movie will be directed by F. Gary Gray who has previously worked with Theron on The Italian Job.
Fast & Furious 8 is slated to hit theaters on April 14th, 2017. The plot remains a closely guarded secret but Vin Diesel has hinted the film will be part of “one last trilogy to end the saga.” This could mean that Theron will be around for Fast & Furious 9 and Fast & Furious 10 but nothing is official as of yet.
The movie has high expectations as Fast & Furious 7 was a runaway success as it grossed approximately $1.5 billion worldwide.
