Helen Mirren will play Jason Statham’s mom in the Fast & Furious franchise.
The news was confirmed by Fast & Furious 6 co-star Luke Evans, who played the still-unconscious younger brother of the character Statham introduced in Furious 7 and, hilariously, isn’t even in the movie he’s out here spoiling:
“People come around from comas, so who knows?” said Evans, who’s not set to appear in the eighth film in the franchise. “He’s in a military hospital because he’s the most wanted man in the world, but he’s got a very powerful brother, and he’s now got a mum as well, who’s played by Helen Mirren.”
The Fate of the Furious is hitting theaters on April 14.
