Charlize Theron to play villain in Fast and Furious 8
Theron is no stranger to leading roles and action blockbusters. She stole the show as Furiosa in last year's Mad Max: Fury Road. Theron also appeared as a no-nonsense leader in Ridley Scott's Prometheus and showed up in the remake to The Italian Job. She now gets to go toe-to-toe with Diesel and The Rock. Given how outlandishly crazy the F&F films can get, we're expecting a good fight.
Possibly just titled Fast 8, the blockbuster arrives in theaters April 14, 2017. An earlier teaser hinted that Manhattan and perhaps the Empire State Building could be a setting in the movie. Photos also showed some filming taking place in Reykjavík, Iceland. Vin Diesel has suggested that installments 8, 9, and 10 might form a trilogy to end the main Fast & Furious series, but there have already been reports of spin-off films to keep the adventures going.
