It is said to be based on Daniel Duane’s New York Times Magazine piece, “The Fight For Gender Equality In One Of The Most Dangerous Sports On Earth”, reports Variety.

A while back, Theron had said she would like to make a lesbian “Die Hard” reboot, after a fan pitched her the idea on Twitter.

She said: “Yeah, I mean, it’s a great idea. 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’.”
