Charlize Theron is the big and very exciting new addition to the Fast & Furious 8 cast list and the first image of her has been revealed.
The Oscar-winning actress is set to play the film’s main baddie, Cipher but this image – which was released via the Fast & Furious official Twitter page – is giving little away.
Filming is well under way on the sequel and will see F. Gary Gray back in the director’s chair. This will be the first time that he has stepped into the franchise and it will also be his first feature film since the success of Straight Outta Compton.
There are plenty of familiar faces on the cast list Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris are all set to return.
It was also announced last week that Nathalie Emmanuel would be reprising her role as Ramsey, a character that was introduced in the last film.
Fast 8 is set to hit the big screen in 2017 and will come two years after the billion dollar success of Fast & Furious 7.
As for Theron, she has already enjoyed box office success this year with The Huntsman: Winter’s War, which saw her reprise the role of the villainous Ravenna.
The actress has also completed work on The Coldest City and Kubo and the Two Strings, to which she has lent her voice.
Fast & Furious 8 is released 14th April 2017.
