Charlize Theron joined the “Fast and Furious” franchise as the villain of the eighth movie, “The Fate of the Furious”. Yet this is a franchise that has had little issue with bringing back its antagonists in the past with the likes of Luke Evans making return appearances and Jason Statham becoming a core cast member.
Now, with the ninth film now in production, Theron’s Cipher is also coming back for the Justin Lin-directed new entry and she’s ditching her signature blond dreadlocks for something a bit trendier and more practical with a first look photo of the new cut arriving via Theron’s personal Twitter account.
In the previous film Cipher was a cyber-terrorist trying to kickstart a nuclear war and while she failed, she ended the film on the run. How she will figure into the new film’s action isn’t clear.
Other returning stars include Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Kurt Russell, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, and Helen Mirren. They’re joined by Michael Rooker, Francis Ngannou, and John Cena this time out.
The ninth film hits cinemas on April 10th 2020.
