It’s the series which just won’t end and according to Deadline “Universal Pictures has closed Charlize Theron to star in Fast 8, which director F. Gary Gray and producer Neal Moritz move into production next month for release on April 14, 2017.
Theron, who’s coming off a memorable action turn in Mad Max: Fury Road, will play a new character in the blockbuster franchise.
She’ll join returning stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and the rest of the gang. Chris Morgan wrote the script.”
It would be cool if she was the main villain as I think she would be the perfect choice or maybe she could be the replacement for Paul Walker and change the dynamic up a bit.
