Theron stands in b.f.’s ‘Shade’

Helmer hopes to draw an aud beyond poker fans

Freshly minted Oscar winner Charlize Theron stood by b.f. Stuart Townsend‘s side during his moment in the spotlight Tuesday night, when RKO’s “Shade” preemed.

The duo, along with helmer Damian Nieman, managed to find a makeshift VIP room during the ArcLight after-bash.

The helmer said he hopes to draw an aud beyond poker fans to the pic, which centers around a group of card sharks.

“I tried really hard not to make it just about poker,” Nieman said.

Townsend added that understanding a film’s subject matter is not always necessary.

“There are plenty of films that I have seen where I don’t know the subject, but it doesn’t matter,” Townsend said. “As long as the story is good you just follow it.”
