Helen Mirren Joins Fast And Furious 8 Cast – Iconic actress Helen Mirren has joined the cast of the latest installment of blockbuster franchise, Fast And Furious.
Speaking to ELLE magazine while discussing her most recent movie Eye In The Sky, Mirren let the ball drop that she’d be starring in Fast 8.
“It fits in very, very well with what I want to be doing,” Mirren said when asked about the movie fit into her career goals. “I want to be making film and theater, but film is particularly relevant. I like it to be serious. Of course, having said that I’m about to do Fast and Furious 8. But that’s for the fun of it. So maybe that’s what I want as well, some fun and some relevant, serious, important movies.”
She added: I’ve always rather loved driving. I said, ‘I’ll be in it, but only if I’m allowed to drive if I do drive in it.’ But we’ll see. We’ll see how it transpires. Film is a wonderful thing and it can be so many different things. I don’t want to turn my back on any of the different ways movies can be. I love the movies. I love going to the films. I like very serious films, I love foreign films, and I love big, fun movies–as long as they’re well made and they’ve got good scripts. That’s the most important thing.
