Charlize Theron Really Wants to Star in a Lesbian Version of 'Die Hard'
The idea was originally pitched to her on Twitter, and she wants to follow through
Published Feb 24, 2021Charlize Theron has already kicked some serious ass in movies like Atomic Blonde and Fate of the Furious, but she's got another action movie she wants to make. Following a tweet last year, Theron is eager to make her own lesbian version of Die Hard.
In December, a Twitter user said that they wanted to see a lesbian version of Die Hard where Charlize Theron "goes on a rampage to save her wife." Seemingly into the idea, Theron tweeted her support:

Speaking with Vanity Fair, Theron clarified that she really wasn't joking: she'd love to star in this movie.
"Yeah, I mean, it's a great idea," she said. "That's why I replied on Twitter. Because I just thought that was kind of brilliant. I was like, 'This person needs to start pitching. That's a great idea.' And the fact that it would be two women, I was like, 'Yeah, sign me on.'"
How a random Twitter user would get the access, expertise and intellectual property rights to create a Die Hard spinoff is not exactly clear. But maybe this will actually happen somehow.
