Jinx: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Charlize Theron is in negotiations to star in Jinx, an adaptation of a Brian Michael Bendis comic book that Circle of Confusion is producing for Universal Pictures. The actress, who won an Oscar for her performance in Monster, also will produce through her Denver & Delilah Films banner.

Jinx is about a bounty hunter who has to learn to trust a wanted criminal so they can team up to find millions of dollars of abandoned mob money in order to start a new life together.

Bendis, who spent 2 1/2 years writing and illustrating the comic, will adapt his own work.
