OSCAR-winning actress Charlize Theron is planning to produce and star in JINX - a new movie based on a graphic novel.

The MONSTER star, 28, is keen to bring an adaptation of prolific comic writer BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS's noir-esque cartoon to the big screen.

Considered one of Bendis's best works, the story follows JINX ALAMEDA - a streetwise female bounty hunter who wants to earn enough money to leave her profession.

Theron will also be seen in the upcoming legal drama CLASS ACTION and the adaptation of the animated series Aeon Flux.
