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!

    LEGENDS OF THE FALL IS A GREAT MOVIE!! A MUST SEE FOR FANS!!!!…
    ____

    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.

    I just read the comments at the Newsweek site again. Wow, some awesome posts by the JP fans. I recognize some names there. I wish Brad and Angelina could read those posts, they would be so proud of their fans, just as we, fans, are proud of them. Bravo, ladies.

    lulu @ 10/11/2009 at 8:57 pm 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).
    ————–

    Thanks for the list .

    But NIcole Kidman, Renee Z., and Halle Belle on the list ? Are you sure this is the recent list . these actress

    _________________

    That is the ranking from 2007. (In 2007 Angie and Reece were ranked the same, but the article made Reece #1)

    In 2008 Angie is ranked #1 – highest paid movie actress.

    There are those in the media who always try to deny her, but Angie always prevail.

    BTW, I have even more suspicion of the media after the David Letterman extortion attempt. If a news producer can do that, what other underhanded things are done by those in the media? To write or say whatever you want to millions of people – that is a lot of power and it is used for very selfish, or mean spirited purposes.

    .
    McAvoy is already contractually obligated to do Wanted 2. He signed a 3-picture deal when he took the role.
    .
    As for whether or not Wanted 2 will shoot this year? It’s anybody’s guess. Bekmambetov said he’d LIKE to start shooting in December, but that was never a hard-and-fast date because he still didn’t know if Angie was going to sign or if she’d like the script enough to re-sign. I would think that if she had asked for a re-write before signing the folks at Uni would have bent over backwards to make it happen.
    .
    Re: LCOZ. Personally I think Brad is just in one of his funky facial hair phases and LCOZ is still at least a year away from shooting. Even if James Gray has finished the script – that’s just the first draft. As picky as Brad is about scripts there’s no way he won’t want some fine-tuning.

    @Sexiest Vampire EVERRRR!:
    Thanks for the link. LOL, this is what they wrote about Tom Cruise

    Given his increasingly bizarre behaviour in real life, Cruise’s portrayal of the blood-sucking corrupter Lestat seems positively lamb-like. We know it’s not quite fair to let real life affect our film judgement (and Cruise is actually brilliant as Lestat) but we can’t quite see him as sexy since we saw that YouTube video of an oddly hyper Tom cackling hysterically about his spiritual enlightenment.

  • Shaney

    @citi:

    Not even Mojo count Kung fu Panda as real film. She was only the voice and everybody knows Jack Black earns all the credit. Not Angie, not in a million years. Shark Tale falls in the same category.Wanted was not her mvie either, she shared billborad with two male stars, and James was the big draw. Not Angie, not in a million years. keep on dreaming; she aint worth the 10 million bucks she earns per movie. Salt will be another flop under her blet just lilke 99% of her movies.

  • an oldie

    @Shaney:
    If James was the big draw, how come you don’t see him on the official poster? Angelina was the only one on it, just like the dog was on the official M&M poster.

    Poor Charlize, another loss for her. I hope that she is going to get another winner role soon.

    I thought she had these million of babies so she can take care of them and give them a stable home, attention and care.

    What’s the point of taking Zahara from her community when she has a poor mother alive, if nannies are the ones being with her all the time, and if she doesn’t even have a place she calls “home”.

    Angelina should have gave Zahara’s mother money to raise her own daughter.

    I don’t understand why they even had the twins on top of all the little ones they adopted and Shiloh.

    What’s the point to have so many young children if you are so career driven.
    .
    You want to focus on getting more movies- cool, but why adopt so many children and have 3 biological ones within 4 years?
    .
    Those kids are being raised in a luxurious flying orphanage.
    They have food and hotel rooms, but no school, friends or sense of their parents.

    I have to say, Charlize Theron & Angelina Jolie are both very beautiful, and they are both great actresses.

  • ummahyk

    i think it’s the attitude that makes you sexy,this is why Charlize even though she is imensely beautiful doesn’t draw that much attention on her as Angelina does,it’s just because she is too sweet,while Angi is like..wild,they have different personalities

  • dianad1968

    @ummahyk:

    #181,

    Charlize is beautiful and BORING. She’s a beautiful blond, who always dresses fashionably, but that’s it. She has no sex appeal whatsoever. It has nothing to do with her being sweet and Angie being wild. What you call wild, is what others call personality and sexuality. Angie’s sexiness rolls off of her.

    ITA !!!
    .
    Cameron Diaz has more sexiness or/and personality in her than Charlize. And it’s not a wild/sweet thing.
    .
    Kate Winslet, Peneloppe Cruz, Scarlett Johansson have all more (swreen) personality than her. Are they wild ? I don’t think so. Besides Jolie WAS wild, she isn’t anymore for a couple of years now and she is at the top of her game while being NOT wild like she used to be.
    .
    If being wild was the it, Lindsay Lohan will be a top earner.

  • Not impressed by JA

    People should just accept that Charlize’s public interest has ALWAYS been low and that she was never IT at any point of her 15 years career..
    .
    She is transparent in the media, transparent in Hollywood, transparent in the public eye . It’s like she didn’t put her footsprints like most beautiful actresses her age with 10+ years in Hollywood and a string of good movies with some reputable male co stars (Johnny Depp, De Niro, ect…).
    .
    She hasn’t left a single memorable performance or popular one in the collective hollywoodian memory, even with her Oscar movie. Something that even Catherine Zeta Jones has managed to do in a time span of 5 years when she was it.
    .
    Again, it is a shame but it’s reality. She just hasn’t IT, she doesn’t have charisma, hence a very poor popular index. Reece has it and she is sweet.
    .
    If she had stayed a model, she would be among those who does well but yet don’t have it to be SUEPRmodel unlike Jolie or even Cameron Diaz though technically less beautiful. She has no screen nor stage presence whatsoever and she can’t do anything about it.
    .
    Even her personal history with her mother shooting down her father didn’t trigger interests like it would have done for other actresses. That tells a lot about the public interest towards her. Just look at any blog, any fansite about her : they are poor. People like her, they just are NO fans. They don’t go to that stage of love/hate with her. Again, it’s a pity but yet the truth.

    @mslewis: you are so right! thought she was going to be with her children?

  • love Angelina

    What is wrong with Brad watching his his children when Angie works during the day?
    I just don’t understand if your angry that Angelina was asked and not Jen but again this is thier lives and not yours. She could be a stay at home loafer like so many other mothers neglecting thier kids playing on the internet bashing people she doesn’t know. Women would kill to have her work schedule including me.

  • remember da truth

    You people are still illiterate, I see……

    Stop accusing Jared of posting “rumors”. He said that Angie is “in talks” and that doesn’t mean that it will happen. It’s also not a rumor that she has taken over the role. It’s merely saying that someone asked her and she has responded, and we don’t know what the response was. That’s what “in talks” means. A conversation. Nothing more, nothing less.

    The people attached to a movie change all the time. It’s not pitting one person against another. Sheesh. Too much reality tv for some of the little brains on here.

    Why Charlize dropping out? Could be a hundred reasons. Maybe she didn’t like the script, has a scheduling conflict, didn’t like the director, is having a baby and can’t do action, didn’t want to work with Worthington, whoever he is (really, Terminator 4 is a recommendation? Who cares?), or thought it too similar to many recent movies.
    Actors and actresses read many scripts at once and they take years to get to the point of being made, if ever. She might have been attached to several at once.

    And please get over the box office crap. Just because it’s not “No Plot Action Movie Sequel 17″ doesn’t mean the movie doesn’t have merit. Charlize is well respected in Hollywood. She stays out of tabloids and gives few interviews, so you simpletons think she’s nobody. Go back to watching Jon and Kate Plus 8. More your speed.

  • love Angelina

    Angelina has been home for months now and all you hens do is complain. You nuts just love to complain and be bitter but Angelina and Brad aren’t going to seperate.

  • la sigh.

    @mslewis: I agree however, Angelina has had several box office disasters after her “G.I.” Oscar win. And although she has been nominated, she hasn’t even come close to a win since. The movies she was nominated for were barley profitable by industry standards. “The Changeling” was carried by Eastwood as far as the academy was concerned, not her below average performance. What will deters Angie’s career now is her personal life overshadows her talent in the public eye. It’s become increasingly difficult for the audience to relate to any character she plays because they only see “Angelina Jolie”. Disastrous to any serious actor . Aside form that I believe her pers and the public for that matter have grown tired of her face, life and below par performances that she gets unjust attention for.

  • veingelina Jolie

    @love Angelina: You’re a freak multi name using loon. Out of the last dozen post your are more than half. Proof in the number darling you’re a pathetic loon. Most of the public do not like Angie or her boyfriend however that doesn’t mean they prefer Jennifer Aniston either? Now clean up your mess.

  • angel

    Wow both ladies look AMAZING in the pics. I’d be gay for a day with these two OMG!

  • Liverwurst

    Angie wouldn’t play this part on the fact that Sam Worthington is a nobody, and a sexless nobody at that. Not cute enough and he can’t act, but then again her 2nd husband wasn’t very attractive, but of course he was the shet of the day in hollywood cause billy bob can act. Now she’s with billy goat who used to be attactive , but never could act his way out of a paper bag. LOL!

  • remember da truth

    As much as Johnny Depp is admired for his acting ability and removing himself from establishment Hollywood, remember that at the age that Charlize Theron and Angie are now, he was sitting on a string of indie movies and small roles that made little or no money. He came back in a big way with the Pirates movies, but other than Tim Burton, he was not the go-to guy for any big directors. It’s not all about box office.

    Charlize doesn’t have the same presence, but her movie choices have not helped her. She usually is the best thing in a poor movie. The difference is that Depp chose well-made movies that no one saw. Charlize chooses movies that hoped for bigger audiences and flopped. But she herself was good in them.

    I don’t think that Charlize cares that much about Hollywood. She avoids the usual trappings, and her partner is the same. She doesn’t care if he is a big star, and they enjoy their lives, and keep it private. I think she is more about finding a project that interests her every once in a while, than about building a big, memorable career.

  • BIG FAN

    LMAO at #18 and #22′s comments, pretty funny !

  • BIG FAN

    both Angie and Charlize are gorgeous. But i hope the rumour is true because i’d love to see more movies of Angelina. She’s beautiful in and out.
