On Friday, Universal Pictures released on social media the first photo of the 40-year-old actress in character.
Theron, who is making her debut in the hit action movie franchise, appears beside a display of machine guns sporting some badass hair extensions tied up in a ponytail, a black leather jacket over a black MetallicaT-shirt that reads, “Metal Up Your Ass.”
In Fast 8, Theron plays a character named Cipher.
“Our crew has faced former military, mercenaries and more,”
reads the photocaption.
“But they’ve never come across anyone like Cipher.”
Theron had told E! News’Zuri Hall that unlike the veteran cast, her character does not do much driving in the film.
“I feel like that gang’s got the driving, like, down,”
“Like, they have, like, a really good thing going. I don’t know if I need to step in in that department. I might have to step in in a different department.”
Fast 8 began production last month in Cuba. The movie stars returning cast members Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson,Ludacris and Dwayne Johnson as well as franchise newcomer Scott Eastwood. No details about the plot have been released.
