Ludmilla, a Brazilian pop/funk singer, announced on Monday that she will act in the latest installment of the Hollywood saga “Furious Speed,” which will be shot in Portugal.

“La Villana is now a Hollywood actress,” Ludmilla wrote on Instagram, referencing the name of the album she released this year.

The singer, who also has a song on the ‘Fast X’ soundtrack, posted a video about her involvement in the film, in which she can be seen waving the flag to start a car race.

During the months of June and July, several stretches of the Highway 24 (A24) in the municipalities of Vila Real and Viseu were closed due to the filming of ‘Fast X’ scenes. The filming also caused traffic and pedestrian access restrictions in Cacilhas, Almada.

The tenth and final installment of the “Furious Speed” franchise stars, among others, Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Jason Momoa, Brie Larson, Michelle Rodriguez, and the Portuguese actress Daniela Melchior.

With a screenplay by Justin Lin and Dan Mazeau, filming took place in the United Kingdom, Italy, and Portugal.

Operation Rio, the fifth installment in the series, featured Rio de Janeiro as one of its primary settings.

Jordana Brewster, who played the sister of the main character Dom Toretto in six films, was born in Brazil and raised in Rio de Janeiro until she was ten years old.

Anita, a native of Rio de Janeiro, recorded “Furiosa” in Spanish and English alongside artists such as Skepta, Trippie Redd, Offset, and Pop Smoke for the soundtrack of the ninth installment of the franchise.

Ludmilla was nominated for Best Contemporary Pop Album in Portuguese at the Latin Grammys in 2016 and for Best Samba Album in 2022.
