Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron will share the screen in Flarsky, a comedy about a down-on-his-luck journalist who pursues his lifelong crush on his former babysitter, now one of the most powerful women on the planet.
Point Grey Pictures, Denver and Delilah Films, and Good Universe announced the casting Thursday, and that Theron and Rogen will also serve as producers. Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies) is set to direct from Dan Sterling’s script, which appeared on the 2011 Black List of hot unproduced projects.
Shooting is scheduled to begin in August.
Theron was last seen on screen in The Huntsman: Winter’s War and heard in the best animated feature Oscar nominee Kubo and the Two Strings, and her other upcoming films include The Fate of the Furious and Atomic Blonde (previously known as The Coldest City).
