Deadline says that all of us Helen Mirren stans can get hyped because the Dame herself is going to be back for more Fast & The Furious madness. And she will be joined by previous villainess of the franchise, Charlize Theron who has been announced to also be coming back for the ninth installment. These two Oscar winners coming back? Dave Bautista will have to come around now!
In 2017’s Fate Of The Furious, both Helen and Charlize were introduced into the deep, rich, emotionally-driven narrative that is the Fast & Furious canon. Charlize took on the role of the main villain a white-girl-with-dreads/cyberterrorist named Cipher and Helen got the role for most older Hollywood-women: someone’s mom. She played Magdalene Shaw, the mother of sexiest-bald man who I want to kick my ass, Jason Statham‘s character, Deckard Shaw and sexiest gay guy in Fast & The Furious, Luke Evans‘ character Owen Shaw. Now, I’m not into that siblings-double-teaming-someone type of porn, but for Deckard and Owen Shaw, I would make an exception.
Well we can expect more! Vin Diesel, posted a message to Instagram saying that Charlize and Helen were back for more… and he said a bunch of other stuff too:
“Week Three: Fast Nine. Here on set. We’ve got a lot of the original cast here, including Oscar-winners like: Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren. Uh, a few new surprises, including John Cena, who I believe is going to completely shine in this movie… I’m looking out today–I’m in London–I filmed fast six in London, I’m so lucky that my job has allowed me to travel all over the world… I’ve filmed in the Middle East, I’ve filmed in the Sahara, I’ve filmed all over Canada, all over Europe, all over America. I filmed in Cape Town just last year–Africa; life changing experience. I’ve filmed in the Favelas in Rio, and the Barrios in Puerto Rico and in the Dominican Republic–speaking of which: never let anyone tell you that people in the Dominican Republic aren’t magical, wonderful people. I love that country and I will always love that country.”
Has someone been talking shit about the Dominican Republic to Vin Diesel? Is he talking about Donald Trump‘s “shithole countries” comment? A little late to bring that up, don’t ya think? And I mean you need to listen to his voice, he sounds like he’s giving us a motivational speech by telling us how great his life is? Unclear.
Can’t wait to see Helen and Charlize back for more Fast & The Furious, I never say this but: Someone get that old lady behind the wheel of a car! And also, before real promo starts Vin Diesel is really going to have to learn how to pronounce that sexy bundle of muscles, John Cena‘s, name correctly. Here’s a reminder:
