Helen Mirren doesn’t spring to mind when you think of a possible candidate to continue the Fast and Furious franchise. She does have an action background, Red, and she made great time driving a lap on Top Gear. The woman who’s become famous for portraying the Queen of England said, “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… I keep putting it out there, and they never ask me.”
The addition of Helen Mirren to a new film would be perfect casting, seeing as how Jason Statham is the main antagonist in Furious 7. Maybe she’s the one pulling the strings for his character’s motive?
