Remember when we reported that the director of the next installment in the Fast & Furious franchise wanted Charlize Theron to play the sole female villain in Fast 8? Reportedly, F. Gary Gray, who will direct the project, and screenwriter Chris Morgan got their wish. According to Deadline.com:

“…F. Gary Gray and producer Neal Moritz move into production next month for release on April 14, 2017. Theron, who’s coming off a memorable action turn in Mad Max: Fury Road, will play a new character in the blockbuster franchise.”

Charlize joins an all-star cast that includes Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson.

Furious 7 was released last April, and grossed $353 million in North America and $1.16 billion in other territories for a worldwide total of $1.515 billion, against its $190 million budget. It was the fastest film to reach the $1 billion mark at the time, doing so in 17 days.
