Theron stars as Agent Lorraine Broughton in the film adaptation of Antony Johnson and Sam Hart’s graphic novel, “The Coldest City.” David Leitch (“John Wick,” the upcoming “Deadpool 2”) is at the helm of this Cold War spy action-thriller that follows Theron’s Broughton on the eve of the Berlin Wall’s collapse as she tries to stay alive on her mission.

The city is filled with changing alliances and she is forced to form a tenuous alliance with station cheif David Percival (James McAvoy) to take down a ruthless espionage agency.
