Earlier this year, in some unexpected casting news, it was announced that Helen Mirren would star in Fast and Furious 8 and now we have our first look at her in the film.
King of the franchise, Vin Diesel, shared the image of himself and Mirren on Instagram:
Diesel said in the caption, that it had been a “joy and an honour” working with the British legend.
When Mirren was confirmed in the role, she revealed that her love of driving was a big factor to her taking on the part:
“I’ve always rather loved driving. I said, ‘I’ll be in it, but only if I’m allowed to drive in it’. But we’ll see. We’ll see how it transpires.”
Unfortunately for Mirren, it was later confirmed that she wouldn’t be at the wheel of a car in the film but we can still see her in action when Fast 8 hits screens on April 14, 2017.
