Charlize Theron is to produce - and possibly star - in a film about the late war reporter Marie Colvin.
The South African actress, most recently seen in Snow White And The Huntsman, is set to produce the big-screen adaptation of a Vanity Fair article with Basil Iwanyk, said The Hollywood Reporter.
She is rumoured to also play the journalist, but this has not yet been confirmed.

The film, entitled Marie Colvin's Private War, written by Marie Brenner, tells the story of the determined Sunday Times journalist, who died in February with photographer Remi Ochlik, while covering the Syrian uprising.
The search for a writer to adapt the article is now under way.
US-born Marie covered wars and conflicts from Kosovo, Chechnya, East Timor and Sri Lanka, where she lost an eye, although she focused on Middle East affairs.
