David Leitch, co-director of John Wick, is getting ready to ignite Atomic Blonde, an upcoming thriller that can essentially be called “the female version of John Wick”. The movie was previously known as The Coldest City, the title of Antony Johnston’s 2012 graphic novel, from which the film is based off.
In Atomic Blonde, Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road) plays Lorraine Broughton, an undercover MI6 agent who is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents.
Atomic Blonde also stars James McAvoy (Split), John Goodman (The Big Lebowski), Til Schweiger (Inglourious Basterds), Eddie Marsan (The World’s End), Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Daniel Bernhardt (Logan).
Atomic Blonde hits theaters on July 28th, 2017.
