Charlize Theron’s Cipher may be getting her own Fast & Furious spinoff

May 11th, 2019 by Marc Comments

With the news that the Fast & Furious franchise is expanding faster than the MCU ten years ago with Hobbs & Shaw hitting in August, the ninth movie filing soon and a female spinoff in the works, we’re still ravenous for any new news we can get.

And today we have a doozy!

Word is that Charlize Theron’s Fate of the Furious villain, Cipher, is set to get her own movie as Universal are brainstorming ways to keep the series going after Vin Diesel and the original cast move onwards (and upwards?).

The studio is exploring other ideas, including a female-fronted ‘Fast and Furious’ spinoff built around Charlize Theron’s character Cipher from ‘The Fate of the Furious.’ The question for Universal, says a rep with important talent in the films, is ‘How do you broaden the franchise? How do you Avengers-ize it?’”

Cipher was a pretty bad-ass villain in the eighth movie; a cyber-terrorist who manipulated Diesel’s Dominic Toretto to doing her (evil) bidding, so her return to the series – which was very much implied by the movie’s end – would be a welcome one.

What do you all reckon? Would you like to see more F&F movies spin-off from the core series? I’m definitely up for it…

Hobbs & Shaw is the next movie in the franchise to arrive and it’ll be on August 2.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
