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!

    she is just playing herself over and over – she can’t actually act!

    the character Rachel from Friends is kooky, shallow, pretty, funny, cute and a bit boring
    She lost my interest the minute she became a mother in the series because Aniston could not act well enough to portray being a mother – she was cold and empty in this new aspect of Rachel – proving she can’t act and is also not a natural mothering type.
    Since then we have seen her act out a proto type Rachel character in film after film – in fact, she is merely playing herself over and over again
    Aniston, like many other mediocre actors got lucky with Friends – the face fit at the right time
    Friends became a multi million dollar machine and the world fell in love with the characters.
    The way Aniston looks, her golden American Californian aura has been sold over and over again and the public laps it up but it is wearing thin now as she ages and the parts are boring (Marley and me? ATROCIOUS!)
    Never mind, she is rich beyond her wildest dreams but ultimately a lonely figure; the marriage to Brad Pitt seems to have formed a later Aniston – the wife with no kids and the man who left her to have kids (many) with another beautiful woman who really CAN act (Angelina Jolie)
    Aniston is a sightly sad figure of contemporary celebrity culture which is for the most part manufactured and not based on true talent

    @gupta: Isn’t this from over a year ago? Angelina gets “back-end” deals on some of her movies, thus she most likely earns far more than $15-20M.

  • Not impressed by JA

    I said it again : Charlize is consistent in bimbs and their magnitude. She makes Maniston a successful, bankable actress by comparison and if you think MISMANAGEMENT is a bomb, look four out of her LAST 11 movies :
    .
    *Burning Plain : 157,532
    *Battle in Seattle : $ 224,169
    *Sleepwalking : $166,057
    * Head in the Cloud : $ 398,278
    *Walking Up Reno : $ 267,109
    .
    Those are domestic figures and the fiorst one is the recent one. Those movies for some hit 1 M worlwide, others didn’t.
    .
    And i put out there the worst bombs, cause most of there are others bombs with movies hitting less than 7 M.
    .
    And if you oppose the number ofg theaters, just compare to other movies. Try Renee last movies that was released in 4 theaters. She man

  • LEGENDS OF THE FALL!!!

    I was watching the LEGENDS OF THE FALL marathon on BRAVO channel last night, and I couldn’t help but think of Brad meeting the beautiful Angelina and her being the LOVE OF HIS LIFE when I saw the movie…(SPOILER ALERTS: DON’T READ AHEAD IF YOU HAVENT SEEN LOTF)

    ….

    In the Legends of the fall movie, during the scene where he comes back to find that his lover has married his brother, and he meets her picking flowers in the garden, with her dark flowing hair…..I thought about the fact that while the actress looked great in that scene, I was happy that BRAD FOUND THE REAL DARK-HAIRED BEAUTY IN HIS REAL LIFE, MS. ANGELINA JOLIE, and that she’s TEN TIMES MORE BEAUTIFUL and adventurous and caring than any one of his love-interests in the movies!! (swoon!)…

    ….

    I also thought about Brad’s pathetic EX during the scene when the woman who is hopelessly in-love with him comes to see him in jail after his children’s mother is accidently killed by the authorities…..the woman character cries and hugs and kisses Thristan (Brads character) through the jail bars, and says that SHE ALWAYS DREAMED OF HAVING BRAD’S CHILDREN, and that she’d even
    WISHED FOR THE DEATH OF HIS BABY-MOMMA……..It made me think that Jennifer Anustain probably has wished that harm would come on Angelina, and that she could have and raise Brads SIX children…..she seems so desperate, and disturbed and clingy and self absorbed, I wouldnt put it past jen to have had her mind drift in that MORBID direction.

  • IMO

    Charlize picked bad movies.

  • an oldie

    I don’t think it’s necessary to pit Charlize against Angelina. Let’s stop the comparison. Both are beautiful, talented and good people.

  • da truth truth prevails

    Out of here, had my fun with the defenders of Marley’s co-star.

    There is NO comparison possible between a great actress of wonderous and enormous ability and versatility like Angelina who takes chances in a range of roles as do all actors with true talent, and a mediocre celeb with a modicum of comedic ability like Jen who has squandered what little talent she has and settled for the most tedious of repetitive roles in poorly written and executed films which she is financing.

    Hope Charlize finds some good roles. She like Angelina has great acting chops, but unlike Angelina she seems to be wandering in the wilderness in poor films these days like HalleB. And that is a shame.

  • Not impressed by JA

    substract Will international power of the equation and you have 50 % of Charlize 10 latest movies that didn’t even hit $400,000 domestically !
    .
    One movie out of 2 doesn’t make half a million for Charlizein nothern America, at this point of her career, not when she wasn’t known but now, where she is supposed to be at the pineacle of her career at 34.
    .
    And it’s not even hard subject, drama type of movies. Only explanation : she hasn’t it ! Cameron Diaz has it, Chalize doesn’t have it. never had and never will.

  • bdj

    Hens are always pitting AJ aganist any actress in Hollywood. AJ is the gold standard but there is no need to find a rivalry with every actress breathing against Angelina Jolie. We know Baby Jane can’t compete, but geez enough with the competition Bull crap.

    # 95 gupta @ 10/11/2009 at 7:54 pm 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
    10. Halle Berry — $10 million
    Stars climbing up the pay scale include Katherine Heigl, Rachel McAdams and Jennifer Garner.

    Note, Aniston’s name is NO where on the list

    ———————————–
    Angelina is worth every damn penny too! I must also add that Jodie Foster was robbed big time, she’s a good actress not being paid enough.

    Jennifer Aniston’s movies are even wosrt and yet she does better.
    .
    Jennifer Aniston is ugly to the fault but her ugliness bears more charisma to the screen than stunning Charlize who for some reason can’t attract people to the theater and mobilie crowd around her.
    .
    You have it or you don’t. She hasn’t it.

  • old lady

    AJ would be great for this movie.

  • Both are great actors

    I like both these actors, both are superlative actors and truly beautiful women. Actors drop out of roles all the time, this happens constantly for a number of reasons. If Angelina does this film I will definitely see it as I would if Charlize were to do it.

    Do think Charlize needs a hit film soon, she has been in small films lately, and in the film business today, the almighty box office $$$ is supreme.

  • Angie rules

    Charlize is not fit to lick Angie’s boots. She’s a mediocre actress at best and her career is heading down the tubes…bye ..bye

  • Both are great actors

    @Not impressed by JA:

    Comedies/rom coms usually do fairly well box office wise. Charlize has picked some really dark roles for the last few years and people are already depressed enough so they do not support her films. Sad but true. I would like to see Charlize in more of a comedy type role for once.

  • lovin some Angelina

    jj get over your stupidity pal.
    Do you just not understand that so many millions of people want Angelina. Something about this woman drives me nuts. Sexiness just oozes from this woman. I’d so turn gay for Angelina.

  • mslewis

    @Not impressed by JA: Which one of those movies was her boyfriend’s movie? He produced a movie that Charlize starred in and did some promo for but I never knew the title. I imagine it did nothing at the box office. Anyway, I just might go to netflix and order a couple of those bombs just to check them out. The only movie I remember seeing with Charlize (besides “Monster”) was one she did with her boyfriend where they had a daughter who was kidnapped. It started out fairly good but ended on a very weak, silly note. In other words, it was awful!!

  • Not impressed by JA

    I agree but i still think she has no it because even with those types of movies, hers are worst than any other out there with other actresses.
    .
    ‘A Mighty heart’ or ‘Changeling’ were very tough movies and did excellent compare to Charlize’s. So does Kate Winslet movies too or other actresses like Scarlett.
    .
    I just think that she has no it factor and didn’t capitalize enough on her Oscar at the right time. She doesn’t seem to gain popularity in the US and has zero international appeal though she is in the business for quite some time now. I mean peneloppe Cruz who came later, who has a very noticeable accent seems to gain more popularity and seems to attract more people than her.
    .
    I think she is better known in Europe for the Dior perfume ad : ‘J’adore’ than her movies.
    .
    It’s like she has no fans. I never heard anyone going to see a movie because she was in it. Or anticipating a movie where she was supposed to be featured. Even magazines don’t put her so much on their cover though she is beautiful with that typical model type of beauty and should sell more.

  • imo

    I like charliez I think she is very attarctive and talented but she doesn’t attract people to go see her movies. Reece does it though her apeal is more in north america , Angie does it internationally but Charliez eventhough she is in the same age group with them and all has one oscar she mis out in the box office apeal.

  • Joe

    SHE HASN’T SIGNED ON JJ
    YOUR INFO IS WRONG AS USUAL!!!!

    you are really loosing touch by quoting rumors as fact.
    esp a snarky blog.

  • Passing Through

    Normally I don’t quibble with the verbage of Jared’s titles for these threads, but geez, dude. The article doesn’t say Angie has signed to do the movie. It says she’s in talks to do the movie. Would it hurt to put that in the title?
    .
    On another note – if Angie’s in talks to do a movie that wants to shoot in early 2010, then chances are she’s not doing Wanted 2 and that Brad is not about to start shooting LCOZ.

  • Both are great actors

    @Not impressed by JA:

    Everything you say is true. Charlize just does not have a big fanbase at all. She is around the same age I think as Angelina and Penelope and is really an unknown to most people. She got no bounce off wining an Oscar.

  • Both are great actors

    @Passing Through:

    All the talk about Wanted2 has gone silent. JamesMc has 2 films he is doing, one now, and one to begin in January or February of next year.

    And I read somewhere that Brad is supposed to have said that LCOZ’s screenplay is still being written.

    The fact is that neither Brad nor Angelina have definitely signed up for any new role at this time. Just a lot of hot air as to possible roles.

    Angelina would be good in this film if she does indeed do it. Time will tell.

    The Bruiser @ 10/11/2009 at 7:18 pm Silly me. I forgot to post the source on the above post:

    http://www.boxofficemojo.com

    Boy am I dumb.
    =================
    The below information is taken from the same site,

    Angie’s: not counting the movies she voiced in.
    - 12 winners
    - 7 flops
    - 5 movies that have no production budgets posted

    Hag’s: not counting the movie she voiced in as well.
    - 8 winners
    - 1 flop
    - 10 movies that have no production budgets posted.

    It’s easy for you to judge Angie’s work because hag’s 10 movies have no production budget listed on that site. Why don’t you try harder?

  • lylian

    I think one of the posters hit it on the head, that is, someone manufactured the rumor that Angelina is in talks to replace Charlize Theron in order to keep investor interest in the movie.
    .
    It’ll come to nothing.
    .
    I also agree with the comment about Charlize being absolutely beautiful but somehow, that beauty not translating into a strong presence on the screen.

    @LEGENDS OF THE FALL!!!:

    OK I get your point but that was a bit creepy.. gave me chill bumbs and not in a good way..’

    I personally think that some things are meant to be. Life happens the way it is supposed to more often then not. That being said. Things moved in a clear direction for these two people to be together. Whether you like them or not.. I really think they were meant to be together. They seem to have things in common, acting roles, people just a bit scary too..

    Back to the movie. I know that most fans LOVE LOTF.. I like it but not my favorite Brad movie.. I lived him in the off beat roles more.. Kalifornia, Snatch, Seven, 12 Monkeys (saw that one today, Fight Club, M&MS (Favorite) Jesse James (some of his BEST WORK).. Babel.. Burn.. IB.. Just loved all of these.. I could hardly watch LOTF.. he was just too beautiful and it was hard to see anything else.. I think he was good.. but I perfer the other roles more..

  • Cartman

    Angie would look perfect if she’d just eat more. She needs like a reverse personal trainer, someone to make sure she doesn’t turn ugly skinny.

  • Jillian

    Angie is way much much better for this role. Charlize is a great actress but who can beat Angie. She makes both men and women horny.

  • Not impressed by JA

    Truth is, Charlize is like a beautiful painting. Everyone likes it, nobody really hate it, she doesn’t bother anyone, she doesn’t really attract nor repulse. She is there, we know she is beautiful, we know she has a rep of being talented but we just don’t care and that’s the problem : everyone loves her, like everyone loves the Mona Lisa but yet few people will take the time to see her or admire her..
    .
    She is beautiful and talented but doesn’t trigger PASSION, INTEREST. As for her talent, people know that she has an Oscar but am pretty sure that few even knows how talented she is.
    .
    People just don’t care about Charlize. they don’t care enough about her beauty to just take the time to admire her, they don’t care about her talent to follow her movies….somerthing that Renee’s fans do, hence she has an impressive high number per theater when she put out there independant movies cause she has a fanbase (unlike Charlize) who are interested in her work and follow her.
    .
    Tt’s a pity for Charlize, but it’s the truth.

  • groundcontrol

    I liked Charlize in the story about women and the union. I don’t think she is very Hollywood so I am sure that dictates her choice in films. Both Angie and Charlize are still young and have many years left in their careers and many opportunities to shine again. Even if Angie does fewer and fewer films she will still probably be interested if some great script or story comes around. Since Angie and Brad both would like to continue their charitable foundation and their other contributions like in Cambodia and generally overseas they will still willingly do the blockbuster now and then.
    .
    Even now we don’t see Angie working on too many film projects.

  • wobbler30

    Charlize is beautiful but also bland, if that makes sense. And there are rumours that she is older than she says she is.

  • hmm

    Sounds along the lines of a good bulk of her other films :/ Doesn’t she have more money then most people in the world? Clearly her, her kids, their kids and so on will never have to work ever. She should just quit and take care of all of those kids she keeps collecting.

  • Sam and Angie….

    I hope Angelina signs on as her and Sam Worthington would be fantastic together as they both have great screen presence.

    He stole Terminator Salvation from Christian Bale and is the star in the upcoming James Cameron “Avatar” movie which is going to be huge. He recently finished a movie with Keira Knightley and is now currently filming another big blockbuster “Clash of the Titans”.

    Sam is the new “it” star of Hollywood and pairing him with Angelina is very exciting, I would love to see them in “the Tourist”

    @wobbler30:

    well I see the fans at jjb were right about you.. that was quick. one comment on jjb not trashing Brad.. I guess you were saving it for jj..

    Brad Pitt has never been know as a player or a womanizer at all. He feel in love with Angeilnal JOLIE.. that is a fact. does that make him a bad person.. no just a HUMAN..

    Angie is a very beautiful woman, and she is linked with everyone. Problem is she has not had relationships with these men. As much as the haters want to think it is true. If it were true.. so what.. just like Cameron, Drew, Kate.. she was single and could date or whatever with whom ever she wanted. She had no where near the number of relationships that Drew has had.. nor marriages.. yet she is the “loose woman”.. She is a very moral woman. And being single she can date as many men as she wants. She has been very honest in her life. She has shared EVERYTHING.. Why would her relationships with men be any different.. So I don’t care what the Freaks say..

    And about Brad.. Brad has always been in a committed relationship. Never known as cheater.. and just because he feel in love does not make him a cheater. Jennifer (by her own words) told the man to go out and get Angelina out of his system.. work it out.. (meaning go and do what you needed to do with her then come back to me). Well Brad told her HE COULD NOT DO THAT and be married. What does that mean.. Well to me it means he was in love and would not break his vows. So he told Jen that he could not figure it out and still be her husband. So he left.. and the rest was up to her. she is the one who wanted the man she “loved” to go and sleep with another woman.. He is the one that was honest and DID NOT. So like him or not.. don’t make him into something he is not because you don’t like him. Brad is not a cheater.. nor a womanizer. NEVER has been. He is a ONE woman man.. and the ONE WOMAN IS Angelina.. Angie is a ONE MAN WOMAN. and that MAN is Brad..

    Enough said. if you don’t like it .. then Suck it up..
