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!

Kelly @ 10/11/2009 at 7:51 pm Charlize Theron is so beautiful, Angelina just doesn’t compare.

Too bad your opinion evidently isn’t shared by the majority. lol !

@jen the HACK-TRESS:

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.

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

I like seeing Angelina pictured next to a hot woman.
Angelina has a man’s jawline, a huge forehead and receding hairline.

I wonder how many times TopBrit/Liverwurst saw ShitHappens this weekend. LOL.

Renee manages to pass 2 M domestically while Charlize with nearly 200 theaters didn’t even hit $200,000 !!!

LEGENDS OF THE FALL!!! @ 10/11/2009 at 8:09 pm

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.

Charlize picked bad movies.

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 @ 10/11/2009 at 8:13 pm

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 @ 10/11/2009 at 8:14 pm

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.

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.

IMO @ 10/11/2009 at 8:11 pm Charlize picked bad movies

————————————–
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.

AJ would be great for this movie.

Both are great actors @ 10/11/2009 at 8:22 pm

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 @ 10/11/2009 at 8:23 pm

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 @ 10/11/2009 at 8:27 pm

@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 @ 10/11/2009 at 8:30 pm

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.

@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 @ 10/11/2009 at 8:36 pm

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.
