Furiosa puts on her Metallica shirt and gets ready to do no good.
The Fast & Furious Saga – as it’s now being called – has come a long way. What began as a story about street racing and family has become, over the course of seven movies, a story about high-wire global espionage and family. Throughout these first seven movies, the franchise has added a number of big names to its family: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jason Statham, pre-Wonder Woman Gal Gadot, Kurt Russell, and Tony Jaa. The list goes on.
In its next entry, the franchise will take one of 2015’s most badass action humans, Charlize Theron, and put a gun in her hand as she goes toe-to-toe with Vin Diesel and company. We don’t know much about her character – her name hasn’t even been released yet – but this first look photo tells us quite a bit. For example, she’s got angst and an affinity for destruction.
With less than a year to go until the film’s April 14, 2017 release date, we should begin to see more from the production. Personally, I’m ready for Charlize Theron and Game of Thrones star Kristopher Hivju to get on screen and do bad things to the family.
