Angelina Jolie is many things to many people. To most movie fans, she is a sultry goddess of action, adventure and at times, Oscar-worthy drama. To African babies, she is potentially “mommy.” But to me, she will always be that thrill-seeking nutjob from Girl, Interrupted mixed with the sex-crazy supermodel from Gia. That is how I imagine she is in real life — I know its wrong, but I don’t care. These are my fantasies.
In the future though, Mrs. Brad Pitt will be starring in Salt, in a role that was originally written for a man — and was originally supposed to be played by Tom Cruise. The Philip Noyce-directed film, as the folks at MovieHole tell us, was originally titled Edwin A. Salt, but will now just be Salt. It will also go into production in February 2009. The fictional film centers on a CIA officer who is fingered as a Russian sleeper spy. She eludes capture by superiors who are convinced she is out to assassinate the president. While trying to reunite with her family, she struggles to prove someone else is the traitor.
In other Angelina-related news, the folks at Cinematical have debuted the new poster for Clint Eastwood’s Changeling, which is due out on October 31. In Changeling, Jolie stars as a mother whose kidnapped son is supposedly rescued by the LAPD, but they get the wrong kid. When she questions them, she is thrown into a mental institution. The first trailer showed some potential, as well as a supporting role for Burn Notice star Jeffrey Donovan, so I’m intrigued, to say the least.
