Charlize Theron may star in her first ever South African movie.
According to Channel24 who reported the story from Netwerk24, the Oscar-winner has been courted to star in the film adaptation of the local novel, The Boer Whore written by Nico Moolman.
Channel24 reports that ZB Media Group told Netwerk24 that Charlize received the script, with interest reportedly shown by the actress.
ZB Media who according to Netwerk24 is involved with the film's casting, says that Charlize has not yet decided on whether she wants the role or not.
If the actress does indeed sign on, then she'll play Susan Nell – a prisoner (and a rape victim) of an Anglo Boer War concentration camp.
Charlize will be required to speak Afrikaans for the role.
