This would really rev up the Fast and the Furious franchise!
Furious 7 was one of the most successful movies of 2015 so it comes as no surprise that the sequel Furious 8 is looking to kick things up a notch by adding another A-lister.

While the high speed movies have already had MASSIVE stars attached like Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jason Statham, we're happy to hear more major talent could be joining the crew!
Deadline reports that director F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and screenwriter Chris Morgan are looking for a female villain to add into the story and they've got their eye on one woman — Charlize Theron!
Theron is apparently in early talks to join the flick and seems like a great choice as she most recently showed off her gritty side as Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road!
If Charlize did sign on, the film would be a mini reunion for Theron and Statham as well as Gary Gray since they all worked on The Italian Job together!
What do you think of the speedy sequel adding Theron into the mix?
