The first look at Charlize Theron's character in the eighth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise has been revealed.

Theron's character will be named Cipher and by the looks of things, she likes guns. No other details of the character have been revealed just yet but the image below was tweeted by the official Fast & Furious Twitter account.

Theron's stock as an action hero is skyrocketing recently. Last year, the actress stole the show in Mad Max: Fury Road in addition to her previous respected efforts. Her other best known works include Prometheus, Hancock, and Monster.

Most of the cast will be returning for the new film, including Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (who is currently finishing up production on Baywatch). The plot is unknown, but Kurt Russell's Mr. Nobody character may be the driving force behind the film and sending the family on a new mission.

Fast 8 is being directed by F. Gary Gray and is written by Chris Morgan and Gary Scott Thompson. Fast & Furious 8 is making history as well, as it is the first global Hollywood movie to be allowed to shoot in Cuba.

Fast 8 is set for release April 14, 2017.
