Well this is fun!
Fast and Furious is a franchise that keeps on churning out the big names and big bucks, but one aspect of their game has been lackluster at best, and that is how they treat their female characters. What appears to be a possible change in that problem could be getting Mad Max: Fury Road actress Charlize Theron as the lead villain in the film.
Clearly Theron can handle being around cars and men any day of the week and she has thrust her talents in the hearts of many like a dagger. She is without a doubt a top five actress working in Hollywood with her range and pedigree showing that with every film she’s in.
Hopefully this turns out to be a done deal and they can make Furious 8 a more race centric film before it falls into even more obscurity than it did with it’s last installment. Dare I mention the building jump with a tuned up vehicle?
