So the Twitter-verse hasn’t blown up just yet, but it will as the official Twitter account of the Fast and Furious franchise has just announced that Charlize Theron is the latest addition to the cast of the upcoming movie and she will be playing a villain.
Theron hasn’t been averse to anti-hero roles throughout her career. She played serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster, the evil Queen Ravenna in Snow White and the Huntsman, Meredith Vickers in Prometheus and is again set to reprise her role as Ravenna in The Huntsman: Winter’s War.
The photo of Theron comes with the #F8, which may indicate the movie’s title. The tweet also indicates the new movie’s script is set to make Theron the baddest villain of the franchise to date.
It is set to hit the theaters April 14, 2017.
