We now have word that Charlize Theron will star in the remake as well as produce via her Denver & Deliah Films banner. The original centered on a woman who is released from prison after serving a sentence for a murder she didn’t commit. She hunts down the real killer intent to avenge the dead.
“This will be very American – and very unexpected,” says Monahan. “Park is a genius; it’s the Everest of adaptations and I’ve got blood in my teeth to do it.”
Needless to say, Theron is an excellent choice for the role and there is a lot of potential from the original material. The actress recently finished shooting Mad Max: Fury Road but there is no word on when this will start rolling at the moment.
