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!

@dawne: Honey, Sofia and I were JOKING!! Guess you didn’t get it. Sorry!!

Theron is Waaaaaaaaaaay hotter than Ms. Black

@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.

too bad. I definitely prefer Theron.

@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!!!

Angie and Sam … yes, yes, yes ! But I doubt it’s true

ANOTHER BOMB UNDER HER BELT! LOL!!!

You want a real stretch for Angelina the actress?…………hows about Angie plays a stay-at-home mother…..she can’t pull it off….

@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.

@putrid actress:

Jeeeeezuz, bigots are the ugliest people on the planet and you are leading the herd.

I n F a m o u s l y C o o l @ 10/11/2009 at 7:03 pm

..charlize is so fcuking hot. jolie would be a downgrade.

@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.

Silly me. I forgot to post the source on the above post:

Boy am I dumb.

Angelina is a kick a** action star!

I can’t wait to see it.

Max Bialystock @ 10/11/2009 at 7:20 pm

Angie is a sure thing for certain producers looking for a tax break flop.

da truth truth prevails @ 10/11/2009 at 7:21 pm

@The Bruiser:

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!!!

the movie sounds pretty interesting
hope she does it

Angelina is the most sought out actress, she must be doing something right.

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.

Wasn’t Hancock a hit? or Was it only a Will Smith movie not Charlize Theron movie ?
