Back in April 2018, Charlize Theron confirmed that talks were happening for a follow-up to the action spy thriller Atomic Blonde, and now we have confirmation on the recent rumours that the project is in active development at Netflix.
In an interview with Total Film, Theron confirmed that the script for the film is currently being written and they have already pitched the idea to executives over at Netflix.
“We took [Atomic Blonde 2] to them and Scott Stuber [Head of Original Films at Netflix] was really interested in it,” Theron said. “We talked to him about it extensively, and we’re in the process of writing it right now. That character was set up in a way where she didn’t really reveal much of herself. So I feel like there’s a lot of potential there. The bar’s pretty high, but we’re excited about it.”
Based on the graphic novel The Coldest City, Atomic Blonde was directed by David Leitch (John Wick, Deadpool 2) and follows MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) who is sent to Berlin to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents. The film also stars James McAvoy, John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella, and Toby Jones.
