Charlize Theron confirms Atomic Blonde sequel is coming

April 13th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Just a few hours ago we reported that Atomic Blonde director David Leitch, whose also director of Deadpool 2 and co-director of John Wick, is set to direct the Fast & Furious spinoff (here) and now we have more Atomic Blonde news.

While it’s not very much, star Charlize Theron appeared on April 8th at San Francisco’s Castro Theater to talk about her role in the upcoming movie, Tully, about mother-of-three Marlo Moreau, talked about making the action-packed thriller.

“I have the muscle memory, but I hadn’t done anything like that for many years,” she said about the physically challenging role, “The strength level was starting from scratch. I do have the discipline, dance teaches you that. I don’t like people telling me there’s something that I can’t do. I thrive in that environment.”

While Theron has starred in Fast 8 and Mad Max: Fury Road too, the actress is set to add another action movie to her CV… Atomic Blonde 2.


“We’re working on the sequel,” she confirmed.

So Agent Lorraine Broughton is set to return… that’s all we know for now.

But as and when we hear more, we’ll keep you posted.

The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.

Atomic Blonde is directed by David Leitch (John Wick) and written by Kurt Johnstad. It is based on Antony Johnston’s 2012 graphic novel The Coldest City, which revolves around a spy who has to find a list of double agents who are being smuggled into the West.

The film stars Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella, and John Goodman.

Atomic Blonde is out in the US on 28th July and in the UK on 9th August 2017

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
