Dame Helen Mirren has joined the cast of the new Fast and Furious movie. The English actress will star alongside franchise regulars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson, as well as newbies Charlize Theron and Scott Eastwood. Pretty impressive cast, huh?
Helen has been open about her desire for a role in the popular film series. Last year, she admitted her great ambition was to be in one of the movies. "I so want to be a mad driver in a Fast and Furious movie. My claim to fame is I always do my own driving.” The Hitchcock actress is also a fan of the franchise’s leading man, Vin Diesel saying "He's a great guy, smart, I love him. It's partly because of him I'd like to be in one of the films, but also because of the driving."
Currently shooting in Cuba, Fast 8 scheduled to hit theatres in April, 2017.
