Hollywood actor Charlize Theron is honoured to essay the first female villain in Fast and Furious series.
The eighth installment of Fast and Furious will be star-studded with actors like Theron, Helen Mirren, Scott Eastwood, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Kurt Russell.
“What a great place to find yourself in; to not only be offered a great role in one of the greatest franchises ever, but to be the first female villain… That’s a real honour,” Theron said in a statement.
“Cipher is the real deal, too. At her core she is completely this rapacious, and that says a lot about a character. As an actor, there is something great about witnessing a character just coming in and taking what she wants… And doing it in a way that’s unexpected,” she added.
Directed by F Gary Gray, the film has been co-produced by Original Film, One Race Films and Perfect World Pictures.
