Charlize Theron Will Play Megyn Kelly In Upcoming Biopic!

no title
Disgraced and recently deceased former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes is getting a biopic, and it’s got real star power attached already.
Oscar winner Charlize Theron has signed on to team up with director Jay Roach (Trumbo) for the forthcoming feature.
The project is reportedly being financed by Annapurna, a company also simultaneously making a Dick Cheney biopic (WTF, guys?!) directed by Adam McKay.

But Theron isn’t just coming on to produce, either! Per THR, the talented leading lady has a very specific part in mind for the Ailes feature: she’ll be taking on the role of former Fox News host Megyn Kelly!!
Still in its early stages, media reports describe the project as “an ensemble pic,” noting that many actors will be needed to take on characters that include high-profile Fox News alums like Greta Van Susteren, Gretchen Carlson, Rupert Murdoch, and Bill O’Reilly, just to name a few.
We can’t wait to see which actors will be called on to fill out those character requirements…
You’ll remember Ailes was forced from Fox News after sustained decades of sexual harassment accusations from staffers and on-air talent.
He died soon thereafter — just a few days more than a year ago today.
For Roach’s part, he directed Game Change more than half-a-decade ago — the feature that told the tale of Sarah Palin‘s wild rise through the political ranks — so producers are hoping he’s the right man to channel another real-life political situation into movie magic here.
Roach is also attached to direct a feature film based on the infamous Michael Wolff book Fire And Fury: Inside the Trump White House that earned itself critical acclaim and such notoriety after its controversial release months ago.

Furthermore, the Ailes feature will be written by Charles Randolph, best known for winning an Oscar for co-writing The Big Short.
In other words, even with such a despicable featured man as Ailes, this biopic could REALLY turn out to be something with legit talent attached! And with star power like Theron now along for the ride?! Sky’s the limit!
What do U think, Perezcious readers?!
