Charlize gets on it

Charlize Theron is set to start filming The Battle In Seattle next month.

Theron will star in the flick alongside Andre Benjamin (aka Andre 3000), Woody Harrelson and Ray Liotta, according Variety.

The political drama is set against the backdrop of the 1999 World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle. Using several interlocking story lines (a la "Crash"), the movie will tell the story of the WTO meeting and ensuing riots from various perspectives, such as those of protesters, pedestrians, politicos, police and WTO delegates.

The film will be written and directed by her boyfriend Stuart Townsend--marking the directorial debut for Townsend.
