Furious 8 Just Got Furiosa with Charlize Theron

CelebNMovies247.com has just got word that after rumors, Universal Pictures has confirmed that Charlize Theron  will be added to the cast!

Who will Charlize Theron be playing in Furious 8?

The villain of course!


This comes after yesterday’s news that Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju will play one of said villain’s henchmen. Besides her expert war rig driving in last year’s Mad Max sequel, Theron previously did some heavy driving for Fast 8 helmer F. Gary Gray on 2003’s remake of The Italian Job.

Of course, F. Gary Gray plans for Fast 8 will be the first of a planned launch of a new trilogy of films set to hit theaters next year.  Fast 8 will be followed by a ninth film to be released April 19, 2019 and a tenth film planned to hit theaters April 2, 2021. Fast and Furious 8, 9 and 10 aren’t the only films new that Universal has planned for the franchise, either.

It was recently revealed that plans are underway for both Fast and Furious spin-offs and prequels.

Universal confirms the cast via Coming Soon:

The cast is confirmed to include franchise regulars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black reprising their roles as street racers-turned-international criminals-turned-super-secret agents. Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson and Kurt Russell are expected to return as well.

Principal photography for Fast 8 is planned to take place in both New York and Atlanta, Georgia. Recent reports suggest that two other possible locations for the film could be the previously unexplored Russia and Iceland.

Theron will next be seen in Universal’s The Huntsman: Winter’s War, which opens on in the U.S. on April 22.

Fast 8 hits the big screen on April 14, 2017.
