Angelina Jolie is a WANTED WOMAN!

Angelina Jolie will star next alongside James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman in Wanted, reports Variety.

Wanted is an action film from Universal Pictures based on a graphic novel that Timur Bekmambetov will direct.

Angelina accepted the role after the script was rewritten by Dean Georgaris (Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life) to tailor the character for her (script was originated by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas).

Angelina, 31, will play an assassin who trains a wanna killer (McAvoy) and will travel to Eastern Europe in May to begin shooting.

UPDATE :: Variety also reports that Brad Pitt will star in the Americanized version of the acclaimed British miniseries State of Play. Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland) will direct.
