In their report, they say the character at the center of the film has not yet been revealed. Further, a lead actor has not been selected.

Details are sparse without a writer on board either. Rumors say it will be based on the Madame Web comic-book character though.

What Variety does know though is that the studio is looking for an A-list actor and will be hiring a writer afterwards to design a script around them.

The publication’s sources tell them that a list of possible stars include Charlize Theron and Amy Adams but stress that no one has signed on yet.
