If someone is sitting down with Vin Diesel during press rounds for Furious 7 they damn well better ask him why he hasn’t asked Helen Mirren to be in one of the films yet, because she certainly isn’t afraid to let it be known she wants in. Speaking with Yahoo she had the following to say about wanting to star in one of the Fast & Furious movies to the point she says, “I’ll be in Fast and Furious 8.”
My great ambition is to be in a Fast and Furious movie. I so want to be a mad driver in a Fast and Furious movie. My claim to fame is I always do my own driving — I was on “Top Gear”, and I did [my lap] in a very good time. I keep putting it out there, and they never ask me. I’ll be in Fast and Furious 8. I have to say Vin Diesel is brilliant. I love Vin Diesel. He’s a great guy, smart — I love him. It’s partly because of him I’d like to be in one, but also the driving. I’d also love to do another Red-type movie, because those are such fun to do.
Now here’s Mirren on “Top Gear” burning a little rubber.
