Fast 8 just got a whole lot more Furiosa as Charlie Theron has officially signed on to the cast.
Theron is no stranger to action movies involving cars. She played the wildly popular heroine Furiosa in the Oscar-winning blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road last year and also was part of Mark Wahlberg’s posse in The Italian Job.
Details on who she will play are not known right now, but she will play a villain in the film, with EW stating that it will be “the greatest adversary” Dom and company have faced yet.
Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham and Ludacris will all reprise their roles while Lucas Black will appear again Sean Boswell. It is rumored still that Eva Mendes may reprise her role as Monica Fuentes.
Fast 8 hits theaters April 14, 2017 with F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job, Straight Outta Compton) taking over directing duties.
