Looks like Charlize Theron is making Fast & Furiosa.
The Oscar-winning actress, whose performances have been featured in films including The Cider House Rules, Monster, and recently Mad Max: Fury Road, has been confirmed to appear in the upcoming Fast & Furious 8. The sequel will have Vin Diesel and others racing against her, as it was reported that she will be playing the film’s villain.
Personally, I see no need to have a Fast & Furious 8, 9, 10, or the upcoming spin-offs that will be attached to the series. It’s too long. Waaaaayy too long. If you’re passing The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Harry Potter series’, you’re pushing it. There’s no reason to have this be a 10-movie franchise, then to plan more on top of that.
Grievances aside, I’m happy to hear that Theron is going to be the movie’s antagonist. Her recent performances in Mad Max: Fury Road and Prometheus shows that she’s still got the chops, and putting her in an opposing role with the rest of the cast seems like it’ll give her a good opportunity to stretch her “villain” muscles. The film reunites Theron with Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray, their first collaboration being the 2003 heist film The Italian Job.
What do you guys think? Are you excited that Theron is joining Fast & Furious, or do you wish she’d get off at the next stop sign? Comment below, let me know.
