In a time when females are stepping into superhero roles andGhostbusters was remade with a cast of women, now comes word that the eighth installment of the Fast And Furious franchise will have a sole female villain. The script is not even done, but sources tell Deadline that newly minted Fast 8 director F. Gary Gray and screenwriter Chris Morgan are inserting a fierce female villain into the story. They are said to have their eye on a particular actress, too: Charlize Theron, whose gritty performance in Mad Max: Fury Road, certainly was a welcome force in the multiple Oscar-nominated George Miller film. It appears her dance card may be open during that time, too.
Stay tuned to see if Charlize Theron will in fact be Fast & Furious 8‘s official villain.

Playwright Aaron Sorkin is bringing To Kill A Mockingbird to Broadway.
“Producer Scott Rudin said the play will be staged during the 2017-18 season under the direction of Tony award winner Bartlett Sher, who is represented on Broadway now with revivals of The King and I and Fiddler on the Roof. No casting was revealed.”
To Kill A Mockingbird isn’t the only new play hitting Broadway in the near future. Disney announced that it plans to create a stage adaptation of the hit film Frozen.
Disney announced Tuesday it has plans to create a stage adaptation of the fan favorite, set to hit the big apple in spring of 2018, making the film the ninth musical adaptation for Broadway from Disney’s New York based theatre division.
The show will reportedly utilize many of the same people who worked on the film, including the same writers who came up with the music and scripts. Before taking it to Broadway, Disney will organize a developmental production of the blockbuster, to be performed outside of NYC in the summer of 2017, the Times reports.
This is exciting.
