Just under a week after Charlize Theron joined the cast of Fast & Furious‘ yet-to-be-titled eighth installment, The Rock took to Instagram Wednesday to officially welcome her to the franchise.

“Want to officially welcome my good bud and all around bad ass Charlize Theron to Fast & Furious 8,” he wrote alongside a photo of himself with the actress. “When MTV asked her how she felt about coming in and playing the villain, her response was classic and the reason why I love that woman.. she said, ‘I’m coming to mess that s— up!'”

Theron joins a burgeoning Fast crew: Vin Diesel, Eva Mendes, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, The Rock, and more all return for repeat roles, while Theron, Scott Eastwood, and Kristofer Hivju have all signed on as fresh faces.

The film hits theaters April 14, 2017.
