David Leitch is currently working on Deadpool 2 with Ryan Reynolds, but if you're having any doubts with him replacing Tim Miller, you should check out the trailer for Atomic Blonde starring Charlize Theron and James McAvoy; it promises some great action as well as some steamy R-rated scenes.

Here's the synopsis for the movie:

Agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on an impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to retrieve a priceless dossier from within the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through a deadly game of spies.

Besides Theron, Sofia Boutella seems to be rising up the ranks as a femme fatale actress. After starring as a henchwoman to Samuel L. Jackson's villain in Kingsman: The Secret Service, she then went on to be the main female lead for Star Trek Beyond. Now she's lined up as the main villain for Tom Cruise's Mummy reboot, and now a love interest for Theron in Atomic Blonde.

This looks to be a fun movie, and I'm looking forward to Leitch's take on the Merc with the Mouth next year. Plus, I'm always eager to see what Charlize Theron has in store with her work. She was just lovely in Mad Max: Fury Road.

Atomic Blonde comes out on July 28.
