THE GREY MAN May Have Found Its Leading Lady In Charlize Theron

In what might be an otherwise striking development since last week, Deadline is now reporting that actress Charlize Theron is, indeed, in talks to lead the upcoming action thriller, The Grey Man. The Aeon Flux star was initially reported for a role though it wasn't clear if she were to star with someone else leading the film or not, while this particular update be not so surprising in an era where genderswapping roles have proven useful in bringing variety, flexibility and growth to certain productions.

The film has a script by Captain America: Civil War helmers Joe and Anthony Russo, based on the 2009 novel from Mark Greaney which centers on Court Gentry, a legendary covert assassin working for the CIA until he is set up by the very people who now see him obsolete. The momentum is high for Theron who got off to a great start this year in George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, and now with another action role set up at Focus Features for the new film, The Coldest City.

This could further induce her prospects as Captain Marvel if the intial report from last week is anything to hold to. Looks like we'll find out soon enough.
