CHARLIZE THERON TO JOIN UNIVERSAL'S 'FAST & FURIOUS' FRANCHISE AS NEXT VILLAIN??
Charlize Theron is reported to be in talks to join the successful Universal Pictures Fast and Furious franchise as a villain, according to Variety.
Universal reportedly made an offer and are "eager" to add her to the ensemble cast of 'Fast 8.'
Theron is known for her villanous rolls as the evil queen in Snow White and the Huntsman and reprised her role in the upcoming The Huntsman: Winter's War as well as in her Oscar-winning roll in Monster.
"This isn’t the first big star to join the “Fast and Furious” cast mid-series. Dwayne Johnson joined the cast in “Fast Five” — Universal likely hopes to mirror that move with Theron’s casting, adding a fresh face for not only “Fast 8,” but for the remaining installments."
Variety reports that Theron is currently filming The Coldest City which also stars SWATH's Eddie Marsan.
Fast & Furious 8 is set to go into production April 17, 2017, according to Variety.
