Charlize Theron Is Joining the Cast of Fast 8, Which Obviously Should Involve Skateboards and Instead Be Called Sk8 Fast Sk8 Furious. Just an Idea.

Seems like just yesterday this was all a rumor, but now it’s official. According to Variety, Charlize Theron will play “some sort of villain” in the next super fast, super furious Fast 8 movie from the furious, fast franchise. (Can we all just agree that after Tokyo Drift, those titles really took a fast turn for the furious worst?) The studio went to Charlize early on, but she didn’t want to commit until seeing a finished draft of the script. Wow! What a diva! Who reads scripts anymore? The movie begins production this summer with Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson (that’s the Rock, FYI), Tyrese Gibson, and Michelle Rodriguez. F. Gary Gray will direct, furiously.
