Los Angeles - Mad Max: Fury Road star Charlize Theron is ready to rev up those engines once again in the eighth installment of the Fast and Furious series. Universal Pictures announced the casting Thursday on social media.

Theron, who also showed off her car skills in The Italian Job, will join stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez in Fast 8, set for release on 14 April 2017 with Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray at the helm.

The announcement teased that Theron's character will be the "crew's greatest adversary ever," although no plot has been officially announced.

The seven films in the Fast and Furious franchise have grossed around $1.3 billion at the domestic box office and $3.9 billion globally since the series was launched in 2001.
