Charlize Theron offered lead role opposite Tom Cruise in 'The Tourist'

Charlize Theron might soon become the latest in a long line of beauties to go toe-to-toe with Tom Cruise on the big screen. The Academy Award winner has been offered the lead role opposite Cruise in The Tourist, a remake of the French thriller Anthony Zimmer. The film — likely Cruise’s next project — centers on an Interpol agent (Theron) who’s after an elusive criminal. She ends up ensnaring an unwitting American tourist (Cruise) in her pursuit — a move that puts his life on the line. Screenwriter Julian Fellowes (who won an Oscar for Gosford Park) penned the script for Spyglass Entertainment, while Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew for the Day) plans to direct.
