Angelina Jolie Replaces Charlize Theron as 'Tourist'

Angelina Jolie Replaces Charlize Theron as 'Tourist'

Angelina Jolie is in talks to replace Charlize Theron in the thriller The Tourist.

THR is reporting Charlize dropped out after being attached to the project for a long time. Producers are now looking to find a director to helm the movie.

The Tourist is about an Interpol agent (Jolie) in Europe who manipulates an American tourist (Sam Worthington) in an attempt to flush out an elusive criminal who was her former lover.

Aussie Sam, 33, has been much buzzed about since Terminator Salvation. He next stars in James Cameron’s Avatar, out in December.

Sam and Angie? Um, HOT!

    Theron is Waaaaaaaaaaay hotter than Ms. Black

  • mslewis

    @interesting: There is no “Atlas Shrugged” and Charlize was never replacing anybody in it. Angelina has the rights to “Atlas” and she had been trying to get it filmed but it has proven to be impossible and, after several scripts were presented to Angelina, she has decided not to do it at all.

    Really, do you think anybody would back a movie as complicated as “Atlas” with Charlize Theron in it when the woman has never had a hit movie? Do you think the “money people” would back something like that? I don’t think so, especially if Charlize was dumped from “Tourist.” I’m afraid poor Charlize will be lucky to get any movie after this.

    I’m watching M&MS for what is in no doubt the 100th time.. I love this movie and it never gets old.. Doug Liman and the studio that made it needs to get off their as*s and release an anniversery issue in Blue ray.. ASAP.. and they need to issue a 3 box set with all the sh*t Doug and company cut out in order to protect the frail feelings of Jenny poo and the Jennatics.. they are sitting on a freakin GOLD MINE..

    and to the poster how said that the sex scene in Taking Lives was hot.. So true. They only thing was Ethan just looked creepy and that threw me a bit. but that was just too hot.. Angie was just stunning and sexy. Without even trying. same in M&MS you really did not see much skin from either of them.. but they heated up the screen like Summer in the South.. and if you have been to the South in the summer you know what I am talking about. The Chemistry was just jumping off the screen.. and that heat can’t be fake.

    I have not heard anything else about Wanted 2. last thing I heard was that Angie had the script.. but just like Brad said recently.. don’t believe everything you read. Just like they had Brad making tons of movies we found out that he does not like to attach himself to films years in advance.. so that he is available if something interesting comes up. Besides Angie can’t make that many movies in a year if she and Brad take turns. which they have done for close to 5 years..

    OK the fight scene is on and that is sexy too..

    Stay home with your patchwork family Ang. People can live without your acting more than your kids can without a mom.

  • Marta

    too bad. I definitely prefer Theron.

  • mslewis

    @lisa: I saw “Taking Lives” just a week or so ago. Since I got Netflix, I’m catching up on Angie and Brad movies. I always thought Ethan Hawke was nasty looking, which is why I never saw this movie when it was in the theatres/cable. But, I liked it very much, especially the ending, which almost gave me a heart attack!! My next Angie movie will be “Beyond Borders” and I hope that one is good also. Plus, I totally agree with you on “Mr. and Mrs.” Totally HOT movie!!!

  • susan

    @The Bruiser:

    I think you are confusing Ms. Jolie with someone else.. If Angie makes flops then you need to address the movies of Kate W, Meryl, Anne H, Nicole, Reese and countless others whose films have not made what Angie’s movies have pulled in. Changeling made more money then any of the movies of the other nominated actresses last year.. If she makes flops.. then I am sure every Actress in hollywood wants to make those kind of flops too..

    Please get your facts straight before you post something that makes you seem a bit dumb.

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l:

    keep trying, troll. If you hate Angie so much why do you spend more time on her threads that some fans? She will remain the international superstar and icon whether you waste your time sneering on her threads or not. Why waste your time? Don’t you have an Aniston flop to watch? Mismanagement is out on DVD, you know.

    To Happy Girl
    i meant charlize has not become the huge star she deserves despite her stunning beauty and amazing talent. her oscar performance was out of this world. she just has not translated to the mainstream for some reason. i think she is beautiful but not sexual..is that possible?

    —————————————————————-
    I think that it has to do with power/attraction/charisma factor.
    .
    Charlize index is very low in that department and it is a pitty cause she is gorgeous. Someone like Renee Zellwegger hgas even more charisma than her. Consequently she can only play second fiddle in a movie and never be the main draw.
    .
    Another ex blond model turned actress who doesn’t have her amount of beauty and yet has more charisma is Cameron Diaz.

    Let’s see Angie’s last three films made over 1 BILLION $$$$$.

    No flops for her, Angie is the ultimate A-Lister, world mega star. She only makes one film a year and is still at the top of the pyramid for film roles. This woman has got IT going on.

    Now now, You are just confused poor dear, Angie was not in Non-Management or Love Doesn’t Happen, those MAJOR FLOPS.

    I know you fell and hit your head and are living in lala land, right? So I am here and quite willing to educate you as to the verifiable truth.

    I do wonder why Charlize would exit this, she badly needs a hit film .

    Well IF Angie does this it will be 2nd film TomC was once attached to and left that Angie stars in. Woman power!!!

  • Not impressed by JA

    Charlize selling power has never been among the biggest ones : Jolie, Reese, Julia, Sandra, Halle, hell, even Maniston, hence i don’t remembered her ever being paid 10 + M for a movie role
    .
    With the exception of 2 movies with a big male name : Hancok & the Italin Job , she has never hit 100,000,000 domestically. Add the ‘Devil’s advocate’ and here you have the ONLY three movies within her ENTIRE career where she hit 100 M WORLWIDE.
    .
    As for ther bombs, they are in the league of mismanagement….mega implosion around 1 – 5 M, sometimes even less than 1 M WORLWIDE.

    LETTER EMAILED TO NEWSWEEK:
    __

    Dear Newsweek,
    ___

    I have never been so repulsed by a Newsweek article as I was when I read Allison Samuels “Zahara Jolie-Pitt and the politics of uncombed hair”!! Are you SERIOUS?…
    ___

    I don’t think news outlets should be in the business of writing about or critiqueing the merrits of a 4 year old’s hairstyle, much less berating the mother about her parenting skills or lack-there-of!!
    ___
    What’s more, it’s quite hipocritical that these parenting standards seem only to apply to Mr. Pitt and Mrs. Jolie and their children, but not to Heidi Klum’s kids, Kimora Lee-Simmons kids, Will and Jada Smiths kids, or Thandie Newtons kids! All these other celebrity parents have allowed their childrens hair to be loose and free and in a natural afro style! Just because Zaharra’s hair has been styled like this moreso is no reason to single her or Angelina out as a parent with a child who has messy unkempt hair!
    ___
    As any woman of African heritage knows, depending on your type of hair, you can sometimes wash, condition, and grease African hair, and it will STILL look as though you just rolled out of bed without attempting to style it! It is just the natural nature of our hair! Furthermore, the picture of Zahara being held by Angelina, which is used for the blog article, clearly shows that Zahara has adorable, shiny black curls to her hair, which indicates that it is WELL taken care of. To suggest anything else is cruel, ignorant, and racially insensitive! I would expect much more of a news outlet such as yours, but I guess journalism has lost the class and quality that it once had in the days of Edward R. Murrow! Newsweek has now deteriorated to notions held on the front of TABLOIDS! Congradulations.
    ___
    That said, I believe you owe BOTH Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie AND Zahara an apology for writing this type of article, which reinforces ignorance with regard to the racial stereotype of ‘good’ hair versus ‘bad’ hair. To infer that Zahara’s hair is not being take care of just because her hair is being worn in it’s natural afro-styled state really sets the civil rights movement back 50 years, as it negates the perogative of CHOICE with regard to black womens hairdo’s. It also insults the African culture!
    __
    I applaud Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt for a lot of things, but most of all for not conforming to the restrictive, negative, and ignorant views of society, but most of all, raising their children to have a sense of their own comfort and freedom. Newsweek could take a lesson from them, and so could the apparently self-hating Allison Samuels!

    Oh Jen having a very bad day are you? The Baster re-shoots got you down after the poor test audiences reactions?

    I know you can’t get cast in action or drama or any other type role but lame rom coms. The big male comedy stars run from you these days don’t they? Well you are too old for them, they cast younger women like VV just did in his hit film and like Ben Stiller does and like Jim Carrey does and Adam Sandler does.

    Face it Jen you are over the hill for rom com leads with bigtime comedy males. Hey that’s life tv gurl.

    Bruiser, snoozer, Jen, get a life. Your list reveals the depth of your obsession. Angie is out living her happy life, snuggling and cuddling with her loved ones, she does not have time for blogs.

    I am sure Norman Aniston is crying out for your attention while you are here. Go give the love of your life a hug woman after you crawl into his doggy bed as you said that is where you like to sleep.

So much for the ole plant, bait and deny routine of Your Hairness’s inept PR flack and paid hens. Hens are too busy stalking the Jolie Pitts to care about ole lonely girl. Shame. AJ has a Partner and 6 adorable children. Whiny Jen has her faithful hens pleading her case and begging the powers to be in Hollyweird to give her one more chance to make another lame rom com crapfest. I pity the fool who finance another “worst romantic comedy of the year” of ole devastated girl. Then again, a sucker is born every minute and a whiny hen is sure to be smearing, lying and fudging facts on a BP and AJ thread.

    If you want a better perspective about the magnitude and consistency of Charlize bombs, hence her selling power, here are the facts :
    .
    * 10 movies out of 29 with a domestic figures less than 10 M
    * 3 out of them amount to less than 1 M worlwide with an investment cost at 20 M+
    * 5 out of them amount at less than 5 M worldwide with an investment cost at 20 M+
    * Three movies amounted at 100 M + included Hancock
    * two movies amounted at 100 M+ domestically included Hancock
    * 4 out of her last 5 movies are mega bombs (less than 10 M worldwide, some even less than 1 M), exception : Hancock
    * Since her Oscar, she has made 8 movies : all of them : mega bombs (5 out of 7 less than 10 M worldwide) : EXCEPTION : Hancock
    .
    That’s how consistent Charlie is in attracted people to the theater and i say this as one of her fan too. She has zero IT. Any prodicer who is also a businessman knows this. That’s why she is never among the best paid actresses, that’s why, she is never followed by paps or does few magazines cause her image doesn’t sell and has never will. Hence there is no progression curvbe whatsoever : it’s flat.
    .
    She has no star power which is a shame. Period.

    Angelina Jolie, ‘Changeling’
    Eastwood’s new leading lady shows grit
    By IAIN BLAIRMore Articles:
    As a superstar actress, the tattooed Oscar winner (”Girl, Interrupted”) has always had fun tweaking conventional ideas about roles and identity — and people’s expectations of her.
    That helps explain how the 33-year-old mother of six and staunch human rights advocate can seamlessly slip from playing the ultraviolent assassin of the summer hit “Wanted” into the heartbreaking role of “Changeling’s” Christine Collins, a single parent whose 9-year-old son vanishes into thin air in 1920s L.A.
    Based on a true story, the Clint Eastwood-directed film also examines the nature of identity — the police insist that a runaway found in Illinois is her son, although he’s three inches shorter — and the role of the distraught mother proved to be a perfect fit for Jolie. Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer approached Jolie “very early on, and once Clint was interested, I called her and that’s all I had to say,” he recalls. “She just said, ‘Let’s go.’ She was extremely enthusiastic. It wasn’t any gigantic producing skill on my part.
    “It’s a tour de force for an actress, and many actresses wanted the part, because it’s appealing on so many levels,” he adds. “We spoke to Angie first, and she’s the one we wanted, because she has it all. She has credibility, intensity and evokes empathy, and that’s what you need in this character. She’s also very attractive and appealing, and that matters, because what’s going on in the film is so horrific.
    “It’s such a tragedy and such a brutal role that in order for an audience to get through it, you not only have to have tremendous screen impact and presence, you have to have that sexual or female appeal, and Angie has all that.”
    Once shooting began, Grazer was immediately “very impressed” by Jolie’s on-set demeanor.
    “She’s enormously committed and dedicated, both as an actress and a mother,” he notes, “and so this project was right in the nexus of what is primordial to a woman — her relationship with her child. So the protection she’d naturally offer her kids in real life, coupled with her critical awareness of her own childhood and introspective observations of that, all contributed to her personal interest in the role. I marveled at her ability to connect with this character.”
    Grazer also was amazed at Jolie’s ability to focus on the task at hand, “even while hundreds of paparazzi were often trying to take pictures,” he adds. “It never seemed to distract her, or from her complete connection to Clint and their relationship on set. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
    Coming attractions
    Jolie is attached to “The Mercenary: Love and Honor” from writer-director Randall Wallace, about the life of Russian dictator Catherine the Great.

  • mslewis

    @The Bruiser: Which of those movies did Angelina Jolie STAR in? You people blame Angie for every so-called flop like “Sky Captain” or “The Good Shepherd” but you don’t giver her credit for hits like “Wanted” and “Kung Fu”. What’s up with that? Angie was in about 20 minutes of “Sky” which starred Gwynnie Paltrow and Jude Law and “Shepherd” starred Matt Damon. And “Changling” made money in anybody’s book but yours!! “Wanted” hit the $300M mark and so did “Kung Fu” but those don’t count on your list. Stop the hating, honey. It makes you look stupid!!

    Reese Witherspoon ranked number one on The Hollywood Reporter’s annual list of the highest-paid actresses. The 31-year-old actress commands $15 million to $20 million a movie.
    Angelina Jolie came in second, and Cameron Diaz came in third with a $15 million-per-movie requirement.
    While Angelina and Reese are now asking for $15 million-$20 million per movie, they frequently agree to “no-quote deals” — deals in which the studios actually pay them far less than their usual fee (usually when they take on supporting roles).

    Here’s The Hollywood Reporter’s top ten list:
    1. Reese Witherspoon — $15 million-$20 million
    2. Angelina Jolie — $15 million-$20 million
    3. Cameron Diaz — $15+ million
    4. Nicole Kidman — $10 million-$15 million
    5. Renee Zellweger — $10 million-$15 million
    6. Sandra Bullock — $10 million-$15 million
    7. Julia Roberts — $10 million-$15 million
    8. Drew Barrymore — $10 million-$12 million
    9. Jodie Foster — $10 million-$12 million

    I was just watching INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE, and ladies…..Brad Pitt is, and ALWAYS WILL BE…..SIMPLY DELICIOUS!!!!!!!

    ………………

    I was watching the scene where Antonio Banderes character said that he was absolutely “….BEAUTIFUL”, and I realized, EVERY CHARACTER IN THAT MOVIE WANTED BRAD PITT SOOOOO BAD!!!
    …….

    LESTAT played by Tom Cruise wanted Brad.
    Antonio Banderas character wanted Brad.
    Kirsten Dunst character wanted Brad. (as a father)
    Thandie Newton’s character wanted Brad.
    …….

    ….and the movie reeeeeally showed how desirable Brad Pitt really is….as it was talking about the humanity that showed through even though he was a ‘VAMPIRE’. It’s just like Brads great heart showing through to us fans, though he is in the heart of FLESH-EATING HOLLYWOOD!!

    I can’t WAIT for all the Jolie-Pitt films!!

  • love

    you forgot to mention last three movies made 1 billion world wide and there is no actress who have did that . you went ten years back to put Angie’s down. lol probably jennypoo really is having a nervous break down it goes down to the usual Angie bashing to the exterm .lol . Her two moives in the row bombed… the taste on turkey baster is no good…her hit in the past 10 years depended on either with the male star or dogs… how sad!

    Since when is anyone is a movie by themselves? Oh, wait. Swimming to Cambodia was one.
    .
    All 3 of Jolie’s most recent moveis were sold on her back. Even the cartoon. He11 they forced her to show up to sell the DVD.
    .
    The reseach on Wanted proved that a huge majority of those seeing it did so because Jolie was in it.
    .
    In any event who cares what some age old movies did. What matters now is her ability to make money now. Since at least 2005 [ Mr and Mrs Smith which ended up making $870 million with all revenue streams ] her movies have done very well – if not at the BO then as critical successes. No one expects to make money off A Mighty Heart which is why it was produced by Paramount Vantage – the prestige indy division. I am sure in the end AMH made some profit. It had a very low budget as well as a low marketing budget.

    Ben, we know you like her. Have seen you fawn over her in the E interview(s). You’re a nice guy. Aniston has made a career off her marriage and now divorce. She started getting roles in films after hooking up with Pitt (1998). Look at her roles prior to the hook up. One or two good movies where she has minor roles. Producers trying to lure Pitt would throw her a bone. Once the split she and her PR machine panicked. Her 15 minutes were almost up, so they came up with the wronged ex-wife line, seeing a definite market. They demonize jolie (although not to the effect planned I’m sure as she is now considered the most powerful celebrity) hoping to continue capitalizing on the “left” woman audience. She was called out on the continued association after the promo tours for the dog movie and not into you, so she couldn’t get away with it for mgmt and shit happens (and look at the results). Now that shit happens is opening abroad they plant then deny (knowing no one will believe the denial) the same “brad wants me back” scheme they tried in the states. Everyone points to the good girl (which IMO was a depressed rachel) to prove she can act. Wasn’t that like 10 yrs ago? She is stereotyped as a romcom/dramady actress for sure, but she’s producing these films herself, and is getting a little long in the tooth to be believable in her own genre. The baster (a/k/a that skank stole my man, now look what I have to do), love happens (just not to me), the divorce club (no comment). She’s milking the sympathies of her fans. Should we buy tickets to her mediocre films because we feel sorry for her? A good performance in a good film would alleviate the necessity of the PR games (make believe boyfriends, strategically timed bikini shots) but don’t think she’s capable of either.
