There might be a mini Italian Job reunion in store for Fast & Furious 8. Deadline brings word that Academy Award winner Charlize Theron is being eyed for a role in the upcoming Fast 8. According to sources, director F. Gary Gray and screenwriter Chris Morgan are interested in a woman for the film’s new vicious villain and the Mad Max Fury Road star is at the top of the list to take on the role. Universal, who produces the franchise, had no comment on the matter and no official offer has yet been made. There’s precedent here for Charlize to work on the film – for one she’s proved in the past to be more than willing to take on the more silly entertaining roles such as with Snow White and the Huntsman, Hancock, and A Million Ways to Die in the West. She’s also more than a few times proved her action chops, most recently in Mad Max: Fury Road, but once upon a time thirteen years ago, she was the female lead in The Italian Job, which was also directed by Fast 8’s F. Gary Gray. The Straight Outta Compton director is thought to be steering the franchise back in the direction of its more serious thrills than the almost comic book levels of heroics in the most recent entries. Gray and Theron wouldn’t be the only Italian Job alums potentially in the film though. Jason Statham, who joined the franchise for last year’s Furious 7 was also in The Italian Job and will reportedly return for Fast 8. No word yet if they will be racing any Mini Coopers in the film, but if all three are in for the ride, it’d be a great little nod. While we’ll have to wait and see if Theron ends up ultimately taking the role, if she doesn’t expect some other A-List actress to be announced as the role is said to be quote, “juicy” and with over $1.5 billion at the box office for Furious 7, it’s one of the biggest franchises around.
