A couple months back, it was reported that Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron would be boarding the long-running FAST & FURIOUS franchise. Her role in the film is currently unknown, but Universal was kind enough to give us a first look at the acting vet in the film.
Take a look at the photo below!
Looks like she fits right in with the look and tone of the film.
Also, the official FAST & FURIOUS YouTube channel has been releasing some set videos, so if those interest you, be sure to check them out below!
In many ways, the FAST & FURIOUS franchise is like the little engine that could. It started off as a relatively low-key -- yet popular -- franchise. It had a couple of stumbling points along the way, but as soon as it embraced its ridiculousness, it really took off in a big way. FAST FIVE brought in the Rock, the proverbial franchise adrenaline, FURIOUS 7 brought in talent Kurt Russell, and with the addition of Charlize Theron in FURIOUS 8, this franchise certainly seems to be (forgive the pun) firing on all cylinders. It's amazing how much this series has allowed me to embrace pure fun stupidity in every way.
What do you think of the first shot of Charlize Theron? Let us know in the comments down below!
