Even More Fast and Even More Furious: Charlize Theron to Star in Cipher Spin-Off

Posted By themoviesleuth 816 days ago on Entertainment - image courtesy Universal Pictures The Fast and Furious franchise continues to roll on with even more spin off news. Just this week it was teased that the next movies might feature a return for Paul Walker's character via visual effects in F10 and F11. But today, word broke that Universal is moving forward on a spin off feature that will focus on Charlize Theron's cyber antagonist, Cipher. She first appeared in the eighth entry, The Fate of the Furious and returned for F9. Now they want to give her a movie that will be strictly focused on the development of her character. At one time, Theron didn't seem to do these types of movies but has recently been doing several action-centric features including projects for Netflix including The Old Guard. Variety has confirmed that Vin Diesel has assigned writers from the series to develop a movie for Theron's Cipher character. There aren't any other details about the movie at this time but you can be sure it would drum up a ton of business. The series is currently one of the most popular in the world and continues to drum up major numbers at the global box office. F9 has already grossed over $400 million in the first several weeks of release. -CG
