Oscar-winning hottie Charlize Theron and steady boyfriend Stuart Townsend are cooking up a movie called "Battle in Seattle," an indie that takes aim at the World Trade Organization.

From Production Weekly by way of ComingSoon.net: "Charlize Theron is attached to star in "Battle in Seattle," reports Production Weekly. Theron’s boyfriend, Stuart Townsend, wrote the film and will be making his directorial debut.

Set in 1999, during the World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle, an eclectic group of demonstrators, including environmental activists, doctors, anarchists, attorneys, eco-terrorists and just plain folks, brings the city to a state of near-chaos, and chases the WTO straight out of town."

So … it’s a comedy?
