Helen Mirren Wants A Role In The Fast And Furious Franchise
Dame Helen Mirren has been acting on our screens since 1966, as well as appearing on Broadway, but what's one role The Queen star wants to take on?
A role in the Fast And Furious franchise!
"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."
says Mirren to Yahoo.
As well as the driving, Mirren would like to work with lead actor, Vin Diesel.
"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."
It's with her role in RED, and it's sequel, as Victoria Winslow that definitely proves that Mirren can kick some ass in a Fast and Furious movie! (Maybe as a villain?)
On the topic of RED, Mirren also talks about the role of Victoria,
"I’d also love to do another Red-type movie, because those are such fun to do"
and if we are likely to see a third film.
"I don’t think so."
If we can't have Dame Helen Mirren back again in RED, a role in Fast and Furious would more than surface!
The latest instalment of the hugely popular franchise, Furious 7, will be released in cinemas on April 3.
I'm a huge fan of Dame Helen Mirren, she was excellent in RED, and I really hope this happens.
