It’s difficult to imagine a scenario where there isn’t a good amount of Oscar talk surrounding Charlize Theron‘s work in the upcoming Young Adult, which happens to be the new film from awards favorite Jason Reitman. This only adds to what should be a big next twelve months for her, with prominent roles in Prometheus and Snow White and the Huntsman to look forward to.
Another project that we’ll probably be able to add to this plate is Cities of Refuge, a crime thriller that, according to Deadline, she’s in talks to lead and produce. Written by Brandon Willer and optioned by Inferno Entertainment, the story follows “a female investigator brought in to solve a brutal murder and kidnapping in which things aren’t what they seem.” This could mean so many things, so make of that description what you will. Producing are Benderspink and Tower Hill Productions; the actress signing on would have her producing alongside Beth Kono of her Denver & Delilah Films.
I’ve generally liked Theron as an actress throughout her career, and despite the plot description not being substantial by any means whatsoever, I at least wouldn’t mind learning more. As it stands, my level of interest in this project is legitimate, if only a bit tempered from not knowing anything concrete.
Are you a fan of Theron? Do the details on this project make you intrigued?
