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 April 14, 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.
