Charlize Theron is attached to star in "Battle in Seattle" reports Production Weekly.

The directorial debut of her boyfriend and actor Stuart Townsend ("Queen of the Damned", "LXG") who also wrote it, the film is set during the 1999 World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle.

At the meeting an eclectic group of demonstrators, including environmental activists, doctors, anarchists, attorneys, eco-terrorists and just plain folks, brings the city to a state of near-chaos, and chases the WTO straight out of town.

Theron next stars in Alan Parker's "The Ice at the Bottom of the World".
