How do you follow up the role of an fairy tale Evil Queen? With a gritty cop drama, of course! Charlize Theron's currently in talks to play an investigator who's brought in to solve a high-profile murder and kidnapping in 'Cities of Refuge.' Naturally, the brutal crime isn't what it seems. (Because if it were, there'd be no movie.) If she takes the part, Theron would likely also sign on as a producer. The busy Oscar winner also headlines Jason Reitman's 'Young Adult' (out this year), co-stars as the evil queen opposite Kristen Stewart in 'Snow White and The Huntsman' and has a small part in Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic 'Prometheus.'
