Serena – Angelina Jolie and Darren Aronofsky may team up for thriller in the woods

Posted by LiveFor on March 1, 2010

Angelina Jolie and Darren Aronofsky are in talks to adapt Ron Rash’s 2008 period book – Serena: A Novel according to THR.

The story is set in the rugged mountains of 1929 North Carolina and follows a man named George Pemberton and his new bride, Serena, as they create a timber empire. Serena not only takes to the woods, but she also pushes her husband to commit more and more ruthless acts. When she learns she cannot bear a child, Serena sets out to murder the son her husband fathered illegitimately.

Sounds like a nice, cheerful tale! Joking aside, it is one of those stories that actors loves as it gives them a chance to go all out and do a great performance.

Jolie is currently filming The Tourist with Johnny Depp. She had dropped out of Wanted 2, which had supposedly killed the sequel although Universal are saying it is still go (not that difficult to continue without Jolie considering the fate of her character in the first on). She was meant to have signed up for the Alfonso Cuaron sci-fi film Gravity, but there are conflicting reports on whether she actually has and there is the old news that she was looking to star in an adaption of Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta novels.

What that all means is that I haven’t got a Scooby Doo about what she will be filming once The Tourist wraps up. Out of all of them I would like to see her star in Gravity, but if reports are true that she is no longer attached to that then Serena would be a good one to see.
Aronofsky has just finished filming Black Swan starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis so Serena could be his next one.
Which one of the rumoured projects would you like to see Jolie star in next? If it is Serena what actor would you like to see star opposite her?

Johnny Depp may be The Tourist. Alfonso Cuaron may direct.

Posted by LiveFor on November 5, 2009

jdeppThe Tourist is a remake of the 2005 French spy thriller Anthony Zimmer and it has been in development for quite a while now.

Originally Charlize Theron and Tom Cruise were going to be in it but both eventually dropped out. As of a few weeks ago, Angelina Jolie was attached to star along with Sam Worthington.

However, THR have the news that Sam Worthington and director Florian von Donnersmark have left the film and there are already some top names in line to replace them.

It was reported that Johnny Depp was in negotiations to replace Worthington, while director Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men) is in talks to replace von Donnersmarck. Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) is writing the script.

The film centers on a female Interpol agent who manages to ensnare an American tourist in Paris to help her track down an elusive criminal, who was also her former lover.

The way actors keep changing on this film I wouldn’t hold your breath over Depp definitely being in it, but it would be cool if he was.

Angelina Jolie takes over from Charlize Theron in The Tourist

Posted by LiveFor on October 12, 2009

Angelina_Jolie_21Angelina Jolie is in talks to replace Charlize Theron in the Spyglass thriller The Tourist, according to The Risky Biz Blog.

Jolie has just finished work on the spy movie Salt. It looks as if she is on an espionage roll at the moment.

Theron has been long attached to the project, which is now also seeking a director, as Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) just left the project last week.

The Tourist is a remake of the French thriller “Anthony Zimmer” from 2005. It centers on an American tourist who, on behalf of Interpol, goes undercover to entrap a former lover who’s a suspected global criminal. It follows in the long tradition of innocents caught up in shady activities abroad that dates back to Hitchcock (“The Man Who Knew Too Much”), Polanski (“Frantic”) and beyond, and a theme that also has contemporary echoes with “Taken” this past year.

Tom Cruise had been attached at an earlier point for the lead male role, but Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation, Avatar, Clash of the Titans) will now play the part.
