We already know that Angelina Jolie is fantastic in high-adrenaline action movies; she’s so good at it, one of the best female action stars around, that they re-wrote Salt when she replaced Tom Cruise just so she could star in it.
The current movie buzz is that Angelina may replace Charlize Theron in another action spy flick, The Tourist which will be released in 2010. If she takes the role, Angie will play an Interpol agent who engages in a ruse to entrap her criminal ex-lover. What amused me a bit is that this is yet another spy film which was meant to have Tom Cruise in the (male) lead role, but he’s since been replaced by Sam Worthington.
The movie is still being shopped around for a new director though, so it may be some time before anything gets started. On the one hand, I don’t want Angelina to get typecast in all these spy/assassin roles because I would like to see her do other dramatic films and even some light humor. However, I do love to see her in action roles and she’s just so good at it. I think she really enjoys all the excitement of the stunts that she performs, so it would be great if she does take on this movie. Time will tell!
