The rumors are true! After reports surfaced of Charlize Theron being in talks to join Fast & Furious back in February, the franchise has now confirmed that the actress will officially be part of the cast.

According to Variety, there aren't concrete details of Theron's Fast 8 role but she is expected to be playing a villain—something that she does really well (just check out this The Huntsman: Winter’s War trailer).

Fast 8 is set to arrive on April 14, 2017. The film franchise will continue its epic run with two new installments (Fast 9 and 10—the placeholder titles for now) will be released in 2019 and 2021. Deadline first reported Vin Diesel said "that Fast 8 was intended to form the first installment of a trilogy that will bring the series to a conclusion after 10 films." The final films will be in honor of the late Paul Walker.

Our crew will face its greatest adversary ever in our next film as we welcome Charlize Theron to the Fast family. 4.14.17. #F8
