Charlize Theron to Visit "The Burning Plain"

by | July 13, 2007 | Comments

The Oscar-winning blonde will anchor the directorial debut of one of the hottest screenwriters around: Guillermo Arriaga.

Mr. Arriaga has been highly praised for his films "Amores Perros," "21 Grams," "Babel," and "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada," but he’ll take his first seat in the director’s chair on "The Burning Plain."

Backed by Mark Cuban‘s 2929 Productions, Arriaga will have Charlize Theron as Sylvia, a woman coming to terms with a decidedly difficult family childhood. Needless to say, Arriaga will provide the screenplay as well.

According to the filmmaker (via Variety), "There are very intense love stories here that take place in different places and times, with characters trying to find the healing powers of love, forgiveness and redemption…"

Word is that this one will feature Arriaga’s now-patented multi-overlapping story technique. Sounds like surefire Oscar bait to me.
