Charlize Theron will star in Netflix’s upcoming School of Good and Evil, ScreenRant reports.

This is a screen version of the science fiction novel by Soman Chainani. Directed by Paul Fig, Kerry Washington will play the other key female role.

“I know what school I go to! I am happy to welcome Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington to the School of Good and Evil! Get ready for training!” – the publication quotes director Paul Figg.

The picture’s action takes place in a magical institution, in which students become fabulous heroes or villains. It is reported that Theron will become Lady Lesso, who is in charge of the “evil” section of the school, and Washington – Professor Dovey (she will be in charge of the “good” part).

The villain’s role will not be the first for Theron – she previously played Queen Ravenna in “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Soman Chainani’s series of novels about the School of Good and Evil consists of six books, translated into 30 languages, including Russian.
