Nathalie Emmanuel has been asked to reprise her role as Ramsey in the next installment of 'Fast and Furious'

Nathalie Emmanuel is set to return to 'Fast and Furious 8'.

The 27-year-old actress joined the cast of the action franchise last year and proved such a hit with fans that she's been asked to reprise her role as computer nerd Ramsey.

Executive producer Vin Diesel, who also stars in the franchise as protagonist Dominic Toretto, announced Emmanuel's return on Instagram on Thursday (19.05.16) when he uploaded a video of the pair driving around set.

He captioned the bizarre clip: "Ramsey's back! Love this girl... #F8 (sic)."

Details surrounding the plot are being kept tightly under wraps until nearer the release date next year, although the cast have already started shooting scenes in Iceland.

Meanwhile, there has been talk of Charlize Theron, 40, playing the main villain, although that's yet to be confirmed.

However, the film will feature the return of Michelle Rodriguez as she reprises her role as Letty, while Lucas Black and Tyrese Gibson will continue to play Sean and Roman in the next installment, respectively.

Ludacris will also return as Tej, Dwayne Johnson will play Hobbs and Jason Statham will continue as Deckard Shaw.

It was previously confirmed that the 'Fast and Furious' franchise - which has so far racked seven movies since its inception in 2001 - will run for at least 10 films.

'Fast 8' is set to hit the big screen on April 14, 2017.

Cyber-terrorist Cypher (Theron) pits rogue racer Dom (Diesel) against his fellow petrolheads, including wife Letty (Rodriguez). Baffling and inconsequential story aside, it’s all shamelessly about car-based action, and although human doorstop Diesel isn’t up to the story’s limited emotional demands, Johnson and Statham…
