Angelina Jolie It seems Sony isn't entirely pleased with the script Kurt Wimmer wrote for the Phil Noyce directed action thriller SALT, in which Angelina Jolie stars as the titular CIA spy who goes on the run after being accused of being a Russian double agent. According to "Moviehole", they're bringing in MYSTIC RIVER and LA CONFIDENTIAL scribe Brian Helgeland to punch up the script with a little good, old-fashioned "doctoring" before the production start date of March 2nd. Actually, it's not that they're displeased with the script - they've got a solid thriller on their hands - it's that they want to make sure this bad boy makes serious bank as they want to throw some major muscle behind the film and hope it to be BOURNE-sized franchise. Of course, a lot of upcoming thrillers hope to be BOURNE-sized franchises so we'll have to wait and see if Helgeland can work his magic.

Yes, great picture of Angelina! She's one of the few big name actresses that can pull off a female spy thriller. She would scare me silly if she came at me with a knife.

While i loved Mystic River and LA Confidential, I wasn't overly enthusiastic about either Kight's tale or Payback. I have alot of faith that Kurt Wimmer will be able to make another film of the caliber of Equilibrium, but I just hope that studio interference doen't turn this into another UltraViolet.

Oh, yeah, great choice of picture of Angelina!
