Angelina Jolie Primed for SALT Sequel
Angelina Jolie is returning to a role that required a sex-change when her interest in the part became known, according to the latest from Deadline. The spy in Salt was originally intended to be male but Jolie’s portrayal of Evelyn Salt brought in $293.5 million worldwide for the spy thriller, proving the gender switch (and dumping Tom Cruise for the role of Edwin Salt) was probably a wise move.
Salt, about a CIA agent revealed to be a sleeper Russian spy, followed the Hollywood pattern of leaving things open for a sequel, and Jolie wants to take advantage of that opening. Of course, Sony Pictures isn’t exactly broken-hearted over the idea. Kurt Wimmer, who wrote the script for the original film, has signed on for the sequel but there’s no word at the moment if director Phillip Noyce will be returning to helm the project.
Universal also wanted to do a sequel with Jolie by having her return as Fox in a follow-up to 2008’s Wanted but she declined, and co-star James McAvoy, who can currently be seen as Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class, indicated that fans shouldn’t hold their breath while waiting for Wanted 2, saying, “I think the studio is keen to make it, and we really want to make it, but we want to make it if it’s right and when it’s right, and that might not be ever.”
Did Jolie make the right call? Aside from the fact that the end of Wanted makes a return sort of tricky, would you prefer to see her as a kick-butt super spy that kills a lot of people or a kick-butt assassin that kills a lot of people?
