“Mad Max: Fury Road” star Charlize Theron is in talks to play a new villain in “Fast 8,” the next installment in the “Fast and Furious” franchise. According to Variety, it unclear how far along negotiations are at the moment, though “the studio is eager” to enlist the star.

In addition to “Mad Max: Fury Road,” Theron has appeared in “Prometheus,” “Hancock,” “Monster,” “Snow White and the Hunstman” and more.

Vin Diesel recently confirmed the title of the film on Instagram with a teaser image that hypes the film’s April 2017 release date, in addition to confirming its New York City setting. In addition to Diesel, stars Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and Jason Statham are also expected to return.

Directed by “Straight Outta Compton’s” F. Gary Gray, “Fast 8″ races into theatres on April 14, 2017.

    she can’t be the main villain unless Mia gets to engage her in final combat and deliver the “death blow”- otherwise this is going to come across as really sexist.

    I’m sure Diesel and the Rock can’t wait to be on screen with their characters punching a woman in the face.

    Likely scenario: She breaks Statham out, he takes on the dynamic duo, she catfights with Michelle Rodriguez. There are some stunts and crazy special effects scenes thrown in. Ludacris and Tyrese have some banter, possibly with the new female hacker involved. Ends with Diesel delivering a talk about family, complete with flashbacks including the Hispanic dudes that vanished after 5.

    Universal, call my agent if that sounds interesting. Never been done before on film. I can deliver the script in… 5 minutes. 10, tops.

    Either Mia or Letty. Or to keep things pc they’ll off her character in some sort of explosion.

    She’s too good for this franchise. She should be Captain Marvel
