‘Planet Of The Apes’ Director Rupert Wyatt Lines Up ‘Agent 13’ With Charlize Theron To Star

'Planet Of The Apes' Director Rupert Wyatt Lines Up 'Agent 13' With Charlize Theron To Star

After directing one of the biggest surprises both commericially and critically last summer in “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes,” Rupert Wyatt hasn’t rushed into his next gig. Oh sure, there is the inevitable ‘Apes’ sequel which he is slated to direct, but with Andy Serkis busy on Peter Jackson‘s “The Hobbit” — not only starring, but doing second unit work as well — Fox will have to wait until he returns from the Shire. Until then, Warner Bros. has set up Wyatt with the spy thrillerLondongrad” and now he’s got another hot project that is sure to start a bidding war.

WME has put together a hot little number in “Agent 13,” with Wyatt to direct and current genre fave Charlize Theron attached to star. The actress’ roles in two major summer movies — “Prometheus” and “Snow White And The Huntsman” — has made her a sudden surprise genre player (a nice rebound after she tried and failed with “Aeon Flux” way back when) and it seems she’s keen to strike while the iron is hot. The script is from T.S. Nowlin, it’s a sci-fi action flick, and that’s about all they’re letting people know about it right now.

Basically every studio in town is in contention for this and with Wyatt paired with Theron it’s easy to see why. We dig the duo, so just tell us when this hits theaters and we’ll be there. [Variety]

Playlist, if you actually did research and not just pull information from other places you'd discover the writer's name is spelled wrong. T.S NOWLIN.

Very likely a coincidence, but Agent 13 was the codename of Sharon Carter in the Captain America comics. She was the younger, blonder sister of Peggy Carter (depicted in the movie) who became the primary love interest for modern day Cap. The sister thing more sense when "modern day" was 1966 and not 2012.

Although I wish she would do more dark comedy… or comedy… or dark… I don't think she needs to prove anything at this point but Young Adult was such a refreshing change of pace for her… I want her and Retiman to work together again.
