Charlize Theron sure is one super versatile actress and I really am digging her current action star renaissance! From MAD MAX: FURY ROAD to the FAST/FURIOUS franchise, the woman kicks ass! She is currently f*cking shit up in Netflix’s latest, THE OLD GUARD, as an undying superheroine and while discussing the film in an interview, the topic turned toward one of Miss Theron’s greatest opuses of action, ATOMIC BLONDE! It seems we may be getting a sequel (as well as a possible sequel to THE OLD GUARD):
“We went into this talking about (a sequel) as a possibility, and it’s definitely something that excites us,” Theron said regarding OLD GUARD and then atomically shifted, « We took (ATOMIC BLONDE 2) to them (Netflix) and Scott Stuber (Head of Original Films at Netflix) was really interested in it. We talked to him about it extensively, and we’re in the process of writing it right now. That character was set up in a way where she didn’t really reveal much of herself. So I feel like there’s a lot of potential there. The bar’s pretty high, but we’re excited about it.”
So it looks like Netflix is who we have to thank for taking us back to the spy world of Agent Lorraine Broughton! I’m all for it! How do you feel about more action-oriented Charlize coming our way? Fire them comments below!
