Charlize Theron Sought For Villain Role In 'Fast 8'

5 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Universal's "Fast & Furious" franchise is winding down, with three more movies to go (at least for now), don't think for a second they aren't going to try to make each one bigger than the last. And for "Fast 8," they've got their eyes on a major talent to play the villain. Deadline reports that the filmmakers are seeking out "Mad Max: Fury Road" star Charlize Theron to play the villain in "Fast 8." If it seems like an outlandish idea, Theron has previously worked with director F. Gary Gray on "The Italian Job," and apparently her schedule is open, so she could take the role if she wanted. This is also the studio that nabbed Tom Cruise to star in "The Mummy" and Johnny Depp to play "The Invisible Man." And no doubt, after enduring the tough shoot of 'Fury Road,' facing the testosterone of Vin Diesel and his crew should be no sweat. »

'Fast 8' Eyeing Oscar-Winning Actress To Play Villain

5 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Fast 8 is getting ready to race into production, as the Universal franchise prepares to launch a final trilogy of films based on the adventures of Dominic Torreto and his band of merry misfits. But just who will they be facing off against this time around, in a film that will take place in locations like New York and Iceland?

According to a report from Deadline, the film's director and screenwriter are looking to land Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron. The actress is currently riding a very positive wave of buzz thanks to her bad ass turn in George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, and she'd be a very high-profile "get" for the production. 

Something that could aide in landing her is that director F. Gary Gray already has a rapport with the actress, thanks to their work together on his The Italian Job. As of now, she's who they're »

Charlize Theron wanted for villain role in Fast 8

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Deadline, Universal Pictures is looking to introduce a female villain for the eighth instalment of the Fast & Furious franchise, with director F. Gary Gray and screenwriter Chris Moran said to be eyeing Mad Max: Fury Road star Charlize Theron.

The site reports that no offer has been made to Theron as yet, nor has the actress seen the script. However, she has previously worked with director Gray back in 2003 on The Italian Job, and the part is said to be a “juicy role and a primo spot for any actress.”

Fast 8 will launch a new trilogy of films when it hits cinemas on April 14th 2017, with Fast & Furious 9 set for April 19th 2019 and Fast & Furious 10 due to arrive on April 2nd, 2021.

Fast & Furious 8: Charlize Theron targeted for villain role

Might Charlize Theron move from Mad Max: Fury Road to the next Fast & Furious movie?

Now this would be a sizeable casting coup. Once Vin Diesel is done shooting xXx 3, he's got the small matter of filming Fast & Furious 8. We already know that F Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, The Italian Job remake) is directing this time, and that the shoot will take the series to New York and Cuba.

Now? Charlize Theron is being targeted for a key role in the film.

Theron spearheaded last year's stunning Mad Max: Fury Road, of course, and in Fast & Furious 8 she'd be playing the villain. There's one main villain in the movie, and the character will be female. Theron hasn't yet seen a script though, it seems, and it's unclear yet whether joining the franchise would be the kind of role that interests her.

Production begins in the next few months, »

There are whisperings this morning that Mad Max: Fury Road star Charlize Theron is being lined up to play the female villain in ‘Fast 8,’ the eighth movie in The Fast and Furious series.

Chris Morgan is currently writing the screenplay for the movie, and F. Gary Gray is lined up to direct the film later this year.

The news that a female villain is bound for the franchise comes from Deadline, and eyes are pointing at Theron, who has previously worked with director Gray on the remake of The Italian Job. Universal haven’t commented.

Fast 8 Is Making A Major Change With Its Villain

19 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Fast 8 won't be revving its engines in theaters until next summer, which means there's plenty of time to pop open the hood and retool Universal's franchise before taking it out for another spin. One key component, the film's villain, looks to be undergoing a massive overhaul, as it looks like Dominic Toretto and his crew will be facing down a female antagonist. While we previously thought Jason Statham's Fast 7 baddie Deckard Shaw would be returning, it appears that early word surrounding F. Gary Grey's sequel would be pegging a "lone female" as the cause of the Fast 8 team's woes. Even more exciting is the fact that Deadline mentioned a candidate the studio has in mind for the role, and it's none other than Academy Award winner / road goddess Charlize Theron, who had previously collaborated with Grey in 2003's The Italian Job. We'll let you settle down »

Fast 8 To Have A Sole Female Villain

20 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the script isn’t even complete, we’re already hearing reports on the plot for Fast 8. We may not know a whole lot just yet, but today, Deadline is reporting that the film will feature a “fierce female villain” as the sole antagonist.

Director F. Gary Gray and writer Chris Morgan already have their eye on a particular actress for the role as well: Charlize Theron. Deadline says that given that she’s coming off a tremendous performance in Mad Max: Fury Road and has worked with Gray before on The Italian Job, she’d be a solid candidate. Unfortunately, though, nothing has been confirmed at this time.

Seeing as The Fast and the Furious is one of the most testosterone heavy franchises around, it’s certainly welcome to hear that the eighth instalment will be featuring a strong female character for the villain. It’ll mark a »

Fast & Furious 8 Adds Iceland To Its List of Locales

27 January 2016 7:03 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Fast & Furious series has certainly evolved over the years. While it started with a film that centered on a small gang of street racers in California, it has grown to become a franchise that rivals the James Bond series in terms of exotic locales it visits. 

For the 8th entry in the franchise, we've already learned that Dominic Toretto and his merry band of adrenaline junkies will be visiting New York for the first time. Now word has broken that the production will also be making a stop in Iceland.

According to Visir, the production is set to film in the port town of Akranes this spring. The town's Mayor, Regina Ásvaldsdóttir, says that she expects the Fast & Furious 8 crew to arrive in April. They'll also be filming in one other Icelandic location that is, at this point, unknown.

Seven of the Greatest Driving Films of all Time

25 January 2016 8:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you are anything like me you couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel of a car. I remember being lucky enough to get my first car before I was even old enough to learn to drive (thanks to my parents). Most of that excitement was based on growing up watching classic driving movies and wanting to experience the thrill of the open road.

Of course, the reality of driving is very different and staying safe and knowing the laws of the road were very important for mine and my friends’ enjoyment. This is the important groundwork needed to make the dream comes true.

If anything the dream of the driving movies spurs you on to do all that important work. So, where should you look for inspiration that will stick with you? Here are some of my greatest driving films of all time:

F. Gary Gray looking to bring something different to Fast & Furious franchise with Fast 8

19 January 2016 5:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the weekend, Vin Diesel shared the first promotional image for Fast & Furious 8, which is set to see director F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job, Straight Outta Compton) picking up the baton from Fast & Furious 7 helmer James Wan for what’s said to be the first instalment of “one last trilogy to end the saga”.

Speaking to Collider to promote the home-entertainment release of Straight Outta Compton, Gray has been discussing his plans for the eighth instalment of the action series, stating that he plans “to bring something different to the franchise while still satisfying what the fans want.”

Christian Bale Exits Michael Mann's 'Enzo Ferrari'

15 January 2016 3:13 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With an $80 million price tag, Michael Mann's brewing biopic, "Enzo Ferrari," needs a big name to make that return on investment. He had one in Christian Bale, who signed on for the picture last year. However, with a summer start date looming, the actor has gotten cold feet about the project. Read More: Christian Bale Thought Teresa Palmer Was A Stripper While Shooting Terrence Malick's 'Knight Of Cups' Deadline reports that Bale has exited the movie, citing health concerns over the weight gain he needed to achieve to play the role. The actor has slimmed down ("The Machinist," "The Fighter"), bulked up ("The Dark Knight" movies), and pudged out ("American Hustle") for roles over the years, but I'd imagine you can only do that so many times before your body starts to revolt. Based on Brock Yates’s book, “Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, »

Director F. Gary Gray Assures Fans That Furious 8 Won’t Just Be “More Of The Same”

13 January 2016 12:30 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The moment Universal tossed in Dwayne Johnson and effectively morphed its petrolhead sequel into a heist film with Fast Five in 2011, the Fast and Furious franchise has consistently – and, more often than not, successfully – set about one-upping the previous entry in the series with even more lavish set pieces and long-winded monologues about the importance of family.

And while there’s no question that Furious 8 will retain many of those core elements, director F. Gary Gray has allayed fears that the sequel will simply serve up “more of the same.”

Once Furious 7 helmer James Wan journeyed back to his horror roots for The Conjuring 2, the Straight Outta Compton helmer agreed to get behind the wheel of Universal’s crown jewel, and here Gray reflects on the initial process with Vin Diesel.

“[The meeting] was great. I went to [Vin’s] home and it was a reunion, cause I had already directed »

Fast & Furious 8 is set to be the first big Hollywood movie to film in Cuba for half a century...

The eight movie in the Fast & Furious series goes before the cameras this year, with Vin Diesel, The Statham, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez all set to return.
