"The Ice at the Bottom of the World" will be directed by Oscar-nominated helmer Alan Parker.
The coldness in "The Ice at the Bottom of the World" turns warmer this time, not only due to the presence of the hot yet gifted actress Charlize Theron in the project, but also because "Mississippi Burning" director Alan Parker has been attached to be its director for sure, according to Variety's report.
A Picturehouse and New Line International production, the flick reunites Theron with Picturehouse's exec Bob Barney whose Newmarket had distributed the actress' vehicle, "Monster", which won her an Oscar for Best Actress in 2004.
Another book-based feature, "Ice" is a drama set in Chesapeake Bay which revolves around the life of a grizzled Navy captain who reluctantly had to retire for health reasons. One of his daughters, a heroin addict and out-of-control single mother, will be played by Theron.
