Charlize signs up to play assassin

Charlize Theron has signed up to play an assassin.

She'll play Aeon Flux in the film based on Mark Richard's novel The Ice at the Bottom of the World, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Richard's novel, a collection of 10 short stories primarily set in the American South, carries a running theme of love and loss and birth and death centring on a cross-section of redneck characters.

It is unclear what storyline Richard followed in adapting his novel for the big screen.

Theron has also signed up for the sexual harassment drama Class Action.

She's also attached to star in and produce Universal's Jinx, based on a graphic novel about a bounty hunter.
