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!

    lovin some Angelina Says:

    Simply don’t understand why non fans are piting these woman against Angelina. Just like Kate WInslet, Anne Hathaway, Madonna, Jennifer, etc. Do you really think they can intimidate Jolie? neva

    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.

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

    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 Says:

    @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 Says:

    @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.

    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 produce one bomb from another. how can they be included ???

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

    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?

    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.

    susan Says:


    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..

    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.

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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.

    Has brad had an affair with every woman he has worked with. I didn’t know Thandie was in interview w a vampire. He is the one who should have the rep.

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

    hmm Says:

    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.... Says:

    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”

    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..
