If you’re shooting a film with a prominently featured female murderer, sociopath, or archvillain and you aren’t trying to get Charlize Theron for the role, clearly, you do not care about your art. According to Deadline, Fast 8 director F. Gary Gray and screenwriter Chris Morgan are allegedly seeking the Mad Max actress for their movie’s sole female villain. (Theron previously worked with Gray on 2003's Italian Job remake.) If you have any questions about this casting choice, please revisit Charlize Theron as Aileen Wuornos in 2003’s Monster, for which she won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Hey, remember when Vin Diesel predicted Furious 7 would win the Academy Award for Best Picture? Just something to think about for Fast 8. Just saying. Just something to think about. Just putting it out there.
