Atomic Blonde 2 could be heading to Netflix: Charlize Theron

The streaming service has already held talks about buying the sequel to the 2017 action movie, according to 'Atomic Blonde' star Charlize Theron.

The Oscar-winning actress told Total Film: ''We took [the sequel] to them and Scott Stuber [head of original films at Netflix] was really interested in it.

''We talked to him about it extensively, and we're in the process of writing it right now.''

Charlize starred as Lorraine Broughton, a top-level MI6 field agent, in the original movie, and she's offered an insight into the character's potential future.

She said: ''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.''

Earlier this month, meanwhile, Charlize described being replaced as Furiosa in the 'Mad Max' spin-off as ''heartbreaking''.

The actress portrayed the war captain in the 2015 film 'Mad Max: Fury Road', but director George Miller revealed he will be casting a younger actress in the role for the prequel.

She said: ''It's a tough one to swallow. Listen, I fully respect George, if not more so in the aftermath of making 'Fury Road' with him. He's a master, and I wish him nothing but the best. Yeah, it's a little heartbreaking, for sure.''

The Hollywood star loved playing Furiosa and was ''grateful'' to have had played a part in creating the character.

She explained: ''I really love that character, and I'm so grateful that I had a small part in creating her. She will forever be someone I think of and reflect on fondly.
