As if Charlize Theron doesn't have enough to do leading Vin Diesel by the nose for nearly three hours in Fate of the Furious, she's also got a ton of projects coming up. Think that'll stop the Oscar winner from adding one more? Deadline reports Theron will produce and star in Need to Know, a spy thriller based on Karen Cleveland's upcoming book.
The film finds Theron as a married mom and CIA analyst who unleashes an unexpected danger upon her family while investigating a Russian sleeper cell. This is interesting because Cleveland works for the CIA herself, and the book, which doesn't even have a publisher yet, has taken Hollywood by storm.
Add this to Theron's crowded slate which includes this summer's David Leitch-directed spy movie, The Coldest City; her reunion with Jason Reitman for Tully; and American Express with Nash Edgerton.
