Charlize Theron For Agent 13

Rupert Wyatt has rightfully earned a surge in popularity after titular mouthful Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes proved to be one of the best hits of last summer.  Well, he’s finally chosen his next project  Agent 13 which has Charlize Theron attached.

It’s written by T.S. Nolan but the script is strictly under wraps.   Variety report that all the major studios are interested (as well it might be given the pairing of a proven director and an Oscar-winning actress), so it probably won’t take long before it’s propelled into production.

Theron was last seen in the superb Jason Reitman/Diablo Cody movie Young Adult and will be tormenting Kristen Stewart in Snow White And The Huntsman this summer not to mention the sci-fi mothership of Prometheus which will be out the same day.
