Charlize on Ice

The Ice At The Bottom Of The World is the intriguing title of Charlize Theron’s latest commitment. The South African born star has scribbled to star as one of the daughters of a retired navy captain, who throws his family into turmoil when he finally has to leave his beloved job for health reasons.

Charl’s character is a heroin addled, single mother who returns to the nest with a mixed-race child. The flick will be based on the novel by Mark Richard, which the Aeon Flux star optioned a few years back. Boy’s Don’t Cry helmer Kimberly Peirce has been mentioned as a possible candidate for megaphone duties.
