After making a box office smash that is also critically beloved, one can only imagine the amount of freedom that director Rupert Wyatt will have for his next project. And now, we finally know just what that will be.

Wyatt already has a RISE sequel on deck as well as a thriller backed by Warner Brothers entitled LONDONGRAD. Now, Variety reports that the director is attached to a new project called AGENT 13, and Charlize Theron is being tapped to take on the lead role. It’s a sci-fi film written by T.S. Nolan, and honestly, this paragraph is all that is really known about the project - other than that it is easily one of the most sought after projects around with a bidding war in full effect.

Personally, I can’t wait to see what Wyatt does next. RISE was a revelation that proved big budget, sci-fi action films aren’t always uninteresting slogs. I think that this could be a great pairing, and Theron, who appears to be on a streak as of late, could fit right in here.

What do you think?
