OK, there’s been enough back and forth about Dame Helen Mirren wanting to join “Furious 8” – let’s get those contracts signed already!
A few months back, the Oscar winner said she’s dying to star in the hit franchise, and Vin Diesel said he’s ready to welcome Helen into the “Furious” family.
“I love Helen Mirren. Get your act together, Helen!” he told Access Hollywood at the opening of the “Fast & Furious – Supercharged” ride at Universal Studios on Tuesday, echoing an interview Helen gave in March in which she told Vin to get his act together and find her a role. “I love you!”
The British star said she’d like to play a villain in the film, and Vin said he’d definitely be down to make that happen.
“Of course I would! Who wouldn’t? It’s Helen. Amazing,” he said. “Tell her I said so.”
When asked about “Furious 8” and “Furious 9,” Vin remained tight-lipped.
“I could tell you a whole lot about eight and nine,” he teased. “I will tell you that I’ve never seen a city so excited about a sequel and so committed to a sequel.”
