At Thursday night’s BFCA awards Angelina Jolie reportedly said “she’ll be in front of the camera early this year [but] didn’t say what projects she may be working on.” She also told a reporter that she “may” work for a few months. My understanding is that she will start working in March — no ifs, ands or buts.
The film she’ll be starring in is no secret. It’s called Salt, a CIA thriller formerly known as Edwin A. Salt, which Tom Cruise planned to make earlier this year before he changed his mind. The part was given a sex-change to accomodate Jolie’s subsequent interest. The big-budget effort will be directed by Phillip Noyce, based on a script written by Kurt Wimmer.
