The Fast franchise has added two big villains to the next movie's cast. Variety reports that Charlize Theron has signed on, probably to play the film's main villain, and The Wrap reports that Kristofer Hivju, best known as Tormund Giantsbane on Game of Thrones, will play her main henchman.

This is great news for all those Furiosa fans out there. Hopefully Charlize will get a chance to show off her physicality while taking on Vin Diesel, The Rock, and the rest of the gang. And Tormund Giantsbane? We can't think of anyone more up to the task of going toe-to-toe with the franchise's jacked stars.

Fast 8 is scheduled to start shooting this summer, and will be helmed by Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray. It's slated to open April 17th, 2017.
