After the somewhat chilly reception given to Aeon Flux, Charlize Theron is getting back into hefty drama.

She’s starring and producing The Ice At The Bottom Of The World, which is set in Washington’s Chesapeake Bay, where a Navy captain reluctantly retires for health reasons. After years of neglecting his family while at sea, the grizzled veteran throws his dysfunctional family into chaos. Theron will play one of his daughters, who returns home a heroin addict and the single mother of a mixed-race child. Yup, sounds like all the heavyweight drama ingredients to us.

Mark Richard, who wrote the short story on which the film will be based, is penning the adaptation. There’s no director attached yet.
