Charlize Theron certainly knows how to handle a vehicle. With last year's Mad Max: Fury Road, Theron's Furiosa proved she could drive a big rig in a high pursuit chase, and do it all with one arm. That alone made the news of her casting in Fast 8 all the more exciting.

The official Fast and Furious Twitter account shared the first photo of Theron's new Fast 8 character on Friday. In the new movie Theron will play Cipher, who sports a Metallica tee next to a stack of intimidating guns in the photo. The tweet also seems to confirm rumors that Theron will play the villain in the movie. We don't know much about her Cipher, but she'll have at least one henchman played by Kristofer Hivju (Tormund in Game of Thrones).


Fast 8 will be directed by F. Gary Gray (
Straight Outta Compton), and also star
Scott Eastwood alongside returning cast members
Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris. Kurt Russell will reprise his 
Furious 7 role as Mr. Nobody and
Jason Statham will return as Deckard Shaw. 
Fast 8 will open April 14, 2017.
