Ok, so CHARLIZE THERON is a badass!!!
When discussing shots and sequences for post-modern action Atomic Blonde, director David Leitch was gearing up to break the fights down into minuscule parts, aiming to capture perhaps 3 or 4 moves at a time, move the camera, and repeat.
On seeing the choreography and martial arts training THERON had mastered he quickly realised he had something way more exciting on his hands.
It became clear that she could do like 20 moves at a time. So I changed the directive to the choreography team like, “OK, let’s push this.”
A look at this behind the scenes footage will show you just how fiercely dedicated and committed the actress was to the role.
