Charlize Theron Plans A “Murder Mystery”

Charlize Theron, who has been spotted sporting a shaved head recently in preparation for the new “Mad Max”, is in talks to star in the descriptively named “Murder Mystery” according to The Press Association.

The comedic story features an American couple on honeymoon who become implicated in a murder they witness. Theron, who is also producing, describes it as “an affectionate deconstruction of an Agatha Christie-style thriller”.

James Vanderbilt (“Zodiac”) penned the script while John Madden (“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) will direct. No start date has been given.
