Charlize Theron would be happy to step into Keanu Reeves’ shoes.
The star of “The Old Guard” responded to a fan-casting idea on Tumblr to have her play a female John Wick-type character featuring “90 per cent middle aged women doing hand to hand combat and 10 per cent queer romance.”
WOW this did make my day thank you. “90% middle aged women doing hand to hand combat and 10% queer romance” killed me 😂 Be damn sure I’ll keep it up :) https://t.co/yCO3fWw8DH

In a retweet about the idea, Theron approved of the idea, writing “WOW this did make my day.”
In recent years, Theron has starred in a number of action films, including “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “Atomic Blonde” from “John Wick” co-director David Leitch, and the recent Netflix film “The Old Guard”.
Fans, meanwhile, got very excited about Theron taking on the lead in an action franchise.
