Charlize Theron Joins The Road

Nuclear explosions suck already, but then cannibals? Oy vey. And now, Charlize Theron? Yup, it’s true. Theron has officially joined the cast of the horror/sci-fi movie “The Road”, which will star Viggo Mortensen. The movie is a big screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s bestselling novel of the same name.

Story centers on a man who embarks on a nightmarish road trip after a nuclear explosion in an attempt to transport his son to safety while fending off cannibals. Aussie helmer John Hillcoat (“The Proposition”) is directing from a screenplay by Joe Penhall.

Theron will be playing Mortensen’s wife, who will be seen mostly in flashbacks. Wait, no cannibalistic Charlize Theron? What a gyp.
