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.

Thanks for the new thread!

How sweet it is to know that all the doom and gloom regarding Brad and Angelina’s career have not materialized … both of them are as hot, if not hotter, than before.

I guess the doubter/haters are questioning once more.

Everyone wants a piece of Angie .

Let Angie have her final word, even though this is in Variety. Everyone is in a hurry to put words out about her. I pray for journey mercies for them in bringing Pax home.

cool…wanted!

Those who don’t like her are not God. Please stop quoting them. They merely stated their wishes and their wishes are not true.

Cant wait to see the most wanted woman movie…

Morgan Freeman, one of the MOST respected actors in Hollywood, working with Angie. So much for the haters theory that no one wants to work with her.

Wanted: Jolie to play assassin

ngelina Jolie is to play an assassin who takes a young novice played by James McAvoy under her wing in Wanted, an adaptation of a US graphic novel.

Wanted tells the story of a young man who discovers that his recently murdered father was an assassin. His dad’s partner in crime, played by Morgan Freeman, offers him the opportunity to seek revenge by joining the elite group of killers his father belonged to. Jolie will play one of McAvoy’s mentors. Filming on Wanted will begin in May in eastern Europe, under Kazakh-born director Timur Bekmambetov.

According to Variety, Wanted will be the next film Jolie works on. The actor is currently in Vietnam processing the adoption application of the latest addition to her family, a three-year-old boy whom Jolie is calling Pax Thien.

She will next be seen on cinema screens in A Mighty Heart as Mariane Pearl, the wife of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan in 2002. The film, produced by Jolie’s partner Brad Pitt, is based on the account by Mariane Pearl of her husband’s life and death.

yes, it will be aksed a 100 times because your beloved is a hypocrite and a liar and doesn’t deserve to adopt such a precious child if she is going to rip him away, put him in front of the spot light, move him all of the world and have nannies care for him while she keeps her fame going. so much for caring about endangering him with the papz. she’s going to take them to eastern europe and think it will be better? maybe she should just have mikey slap him around a little so he knows how she prefers treating other humans. poor child!

Damn…I thought I beat the first hater! Dude…she didn’t mean forever! Quit being so literal.

whataliar @ 03/20/2007 at 8:45 am

no we thought she meant a little longer than 6 weeks. i don’t care about her being famous. it’s pax that needs attention – not her. we are morons? what about her? she just said that to the vietnamese government to appease them so she could buy, i mean adopt, her next kid without any troubles? she’s a media frenzy hound and she keeps asking for it. jennifer aniston is an idiot and this has nothing to do with her you “haters”. it has to do with the fact that every major newspaper is promoting ange’s good deeds and her comments THAT SHE MAKES where she promises to be there for Pax and apologizes for the limelight she’s put him in and she cries to Trevor about all the “circus” and then she signs on for another round of insanity!!!!
