Charlize Theron: The Academy Award-winning actress, who will soon be starring opposite Seth MacFarlane in his comic Western A Million Ways to Die in the West, has set up two more starring roles. First comes the lighthearted Ladies Night, in which she’ll play a woman out for a final fling before leaving town (and her noncommittal boyfriend); Fred Savage (The Wonder Years) will direct. Then comes an untitled crime thriller, still in development, which reportedly revolves around a group of vigilantes and is “in the spirit” of The Departed. [The Hollywood Reporter / Heat Vision]

R-Rated Movie Enforcement: Only 24% of young teens (aged 13-16) were able to buy tickets to R-rated movies, according to an “undercover shopper” survey conducted by the  Federal Trade Commission. The FTC says that’s down from 33% in 2010, and is a historic low since the surveys began in 2000. But a closer look reveals that the stats are skewed by the very low percentage admitted at AMC Theatres (5%), while three other chains allowed more than 40% of young people under the age of 17 to buy tickets to R-rated movies.
