Television host Megyn Kelly will be getting the big-screen Hollywood treatment in the near future.

Academy Award winner Charlize Theron will take on the lead role of Kelly in an upcoming film focused on the ex-Fox News host’s friction with the late CEO of Fox News, Roger Ailes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Kelly was one of many to accuse him of sexual harassment — accusations that led the media mogul to resign from Fox in July of 2016.

He passed away last May.

Considering the director of this upcoming film is Jay Roach, potential viewers should be prepared for a leftist lovefest. Roach’s filmography includes such hit pieces against conservatives as “Game Change,” which retold the story of the 2008 presidential election — and “Recount,” which retold the story of the controversial results of the 2000 presidential election.

This new film is also being produced by Annapurna, a company that is also working on a biopic of former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Kelly has become quite a controversial figure since leaving Fox News. Her journalistic standards have come into question more than once.

This upcoming film will no doubt avoid such petty details — in favor of the grander goal of trying, as hard as it can, to take down Fox News.
