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!

    @mslewis: You’re probably right. Girl is nothing if not predictable – I mean, consistent.

    Oh, and yeah – THR said she’s “in talks to replace,” not “replacing.”

    Both are former models turned serious actress with an Oscar on their sleeves and are born the same year..

    Charlize is extremely beautiful, she is really talented but she has ZERO and i mean ZERO charisma and national appeal, let alone international appeal.
    I really don’t know why. Ever since she appears, i thought she was absolutely beautiful but for some reasons, she can’t direct the light towards her. She can’t draw people to the theater on her name solely. Never had, never will. Oh and this rule also applied to the media. She is just doesn’t sell whatsoever , even in advertisment. Actresses, usually brunettes are better sellers..

    I know, #11. And she always rags on me when I hang out here even though nowhere near as much as she does.

    How could you not have heard of Sam Worthington, #21? He stole Terminator 4 earlier this year.

    Actors turn down roles for many reasons. Scheduling conflicts is a likely reason. Why wouldn’t Jolie take on a role that someone turned down? It’s not like the role would be spoiled goods or something. And how is it anything like Salt?

    Angie’s no Cougar.
    That’s Maniston thang to go out with younger men who star with Angelina (cough, cough, Vince) or dream about Angelina (cough, cough Mayer).
    She is THAT obsessed !

    #32: I agree with you. It is a phenomenon most of us can’t understand. Sometimes the most beautiful woman may come off blan on screen. Charlize is one of those drope dead gorgeous women who comes off i don’t know what it is…maybe too ethereal, or too passive, or too something. She has become the HUGE star she deserves. I don’t think it is a brunette or blonde thing. Somehow Cate Blanchett who is less beautiful than Charlize is more interesting on screen. Can’t explain it. It’s a mystery. You either got it or you don’t. Angelina Jolie has the IT factor for sure. It’s a powerful thing when men and women are seduced by a woman like that.

    Angelina could be sexy if she only had a hot body.

    ROTFLMBAO!!! Posted while sitting on your size 42 ass with your boobs resting on your knees, yeah, right.

    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 that possible?

    I love Angie.. big big fan.. and I love Charlize. I don’t like it when they try to pit one woman against another..

    since I think they are bothy beyond beautiful and talented I would love to see them do a film together.. That would be so off the freakin Chain.. I think they have a lot in common and are two really strong minded women..

    I love that Angie works when she wants, and does not feel the need to put out 2 or 3 movies every year. Damn some people it seems as if we see them in a new film every week.. Give us time to miss your faces on screen. It will be over a year since Angie last worked. So 2010 is going to be a treat for her fans..

    Glad she and Brad are off and just enjoying family time.. NOW if only the media and the haters would leave them the H e ll alone.

    ROFLMAO………..YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS. BWAAAHAHAHA. Aniston couldn’t act her way out of a wet paper bag; she’s the flop queen who will never get a another chance to open a movie after two major box office and critical jokes……….she still has a few in the can she will be ‘trying’ to get distributed……….good luck to her

    On the other hand, Angie is an Oscar winning and again Oscar nominated most powerful female HW star…………so dream on sucker.

    They need to stop using Angie’s name to get publicity for that film.

    let's see Says:

    Sam is hot. Brad is hotter even though he is older than Sam. I will take Brad any time. I don’t understand why Angie takes another role similar to Salt. I love how Brad takes diverse roles.

    @happy girl: I agree with you that Charlize doesn’t come off as “sexy” and has zero charisma. You just aren’t drawn to her on the screen. I don’t understand it either. She is hardly ever on any of those stupid “most beaufitul” lists. I mean, I know those lists don’t mean anything but, evidently, when people are asked to list their most beautiful stars, Charlize’s name never comes up. It’s strange but it proves that you can be beautiful and still not connect with the audience. Guess that’s why she can’t carry a movie on her own. Poor Charlize. She really is a good actress, I think.

    Well then lets hope this film and Salt is not like Angie’s other 8 major flop films.
