Charlize Theron offered villain role in Fast and Furious 8
Charlize Theron has been offered the role of the villain in the forthcoming eighth instalment of Fast and Furious.
According to Variety, director F. Gary Gray and screenwriter Chris Morgan are looking for a strong female villain and have offered the role to Theron, who excelled in her role as Furiosa in George Miller's smash hit Mad Max: Fury Road.
If she accepts the role, Theron would likely be teaming up with Jason Statham, who is expected to return to reprise his role as Deckard Shaw, the key villain in Fast 7.
The new movie will be largely set in New York. It is due in UK cinemas on May 17th in 2017 and will be directed by Gray, the man responsible for Straight Outta Compton.
Recently Vin Diesel confirmed that release date for the ninth and 10th instalments of the Fast and Furious are already set. Fast 9 will be in cinemas on April 19th in 2019 and Fast 10 on April 2nd in 2021.
Fast 7 was released on DVD earlier this year. You can check out all seven previous instalments in our online store by clicking on the icon on the right-hand side of the page.
