Angelina Jolie Replaces Charlize Theron as 'Tourist'

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!

    Why would you start off by lying. Stating that the reason angie is recoginzed is because of being with Brad. Now everybody in this country that is into movies that is a lie. She did several movies before she got with Brad and also won an oscar before she got with Brad. So, just stop with the spinning. I love both Brad and Angie and having them both showing up on the Red Carpet just blows my mind, When they are there is is just like the real Hollywood.

    @lmao:

    Why do you all (freaks) claim that Brad has baggage.. BRAD HAS A FAMILY.. now one with a brain would consider that Baggage.

    He has what he wanted.. Jen has what she wanted. And when Brad was asked if he missed his single without children days.. his answer was a BIG FAT NO.. so stop the stupid digs. Most people with children who want them do not consider them a noose around their necks. OR baggage/

    and as you said.. Jen would not want the baggage (kids). I guess that is why she has not had any. And Brad found the woman that shared his desire to have a large family.. And that is why Brad and Angie do have children a family..

    OH sorry.. Baggage as you call it.

    Jen’s baggage are her two dogs, the Coxes, her neuroticism, her desperation and her constant whining.

    That’s jen baggage that no man would want to deal with in the long term

  • val

    This is why I am convinced that Jenhens are lonely, fat, ugly women who are not able to keep a man much less produce children. How DARE you say Brad has BAGGAGE??? How dare you accuse a man who is in a relationship and has SIX lovely children with that ONE woman to have baggage? Do you know who dumb and ignorant you sound? This is why men do not want trash like you or queen of fugs. You guys are truly the poster children for dumb a@$$es.

    @debra77: Brad Pitt is the one that called his family baggage when he was asked if he would do a movie with Angie. He said they would have to deal with all the baggage that came along with that. Angie says it nicer when she says no they wouldn’t do a movie together because one of them as to stay with the kids. Note she doesn’t refer to her family as baggage.

    I state Facts. Going the way they’re going. Brad calls his kids baggage, uses drugs when he’s supposed to be with the kids, overall a bad parent. I for one can’t wait. I will cheer her on while you guys bash her for not wanting your washed up old fartttttt. You are all stuck in the 90s when Brad Pitt was arguably good looking. now when you tell people, “eww he’s nothing special.” they agree instead of argue their points. They are not stuck in the 90s like the Brad Pitt fans here.

  • hehehe

    @Loves it: he didn’t say that what he said was doing mr and mrs two will bring the baggage..

  • hehehe

    @hehehe: Baggage as in MAN ANUSton.

  • To Tabloids

    Just to remind you, Jen never love Brad, she is too in love with herself, she loves the spotlight and attention she had being attached to Brad. This means that crying over Brad is another strategy to gain sympathy and attention so faniston will go see her shit happens movie. She probably has all the copies of the tabloids where she is in the cover and sleeps with them too. She simply adores herself, she is just not capable of loving anyone. Why do you think all the men run away? because staying too long with Maniston deprives anyone of love and affection. She did say she does not mind dogs though and that’s what she has. Her life simply says a lot about her.

    Here are the best words that pretty much SUMS UP Pitt’s life prior to Jan 7, 2005(Separation from Jennifer Aniston):

    1.) Whn asked how much his life has changed since the divorce, and the kids, and the charity – he said prior to the kidss, something like ” my life had reached a dead-end. I was fed up of sitting down on the coach and doing nothing. …now I am father etc etc…

    2.) When asked about having kids before now, he said – “Fatherhood was going to happen one day, it was a natural progression but it wasn’t until Jolie, did I feel ready to be a father. In, short, his wigglies($perm for the uneducated) did not feel up to the SWIM to the ovum until they saw Jolie with them eyes and for REAL….and from then onward, it was HALLUEJAH for the wigglles. Hence the hot hot hot “therapy session” toward the end of the Mr&Mrs Smith.

    *** Bottomline, love it – you make the mistake of thinking Jolie is a problem for Pitt. THAT right there is a hint that

    A.) YOU do not KNOW BRAD PITT

    B.) I think you drunk too much of the “golden couple(Brad and Jen)” kool-aid…and lost touch with the REAL BRAD PITT. The real Brad Pitt is actuallly more compatible with Angelina Jolie than with Jennifer Aniston. Don’t believe me? Ask Fincher(the Director of Fight Club) – he said people do not realize that the real Brad Pitt is more like Tyler Durden than the version put of there by the Hollywood media, PR and those who bought into the fairytale of Brad and Jennifer Aniston.

    ***I am of the view that, you couldn’t have had two very incompatible people like Brad and Jennifer marrying, hence, the “NO SUPRISE” when their marriage when kaput/finito ***
    It just had to come to an end.

    Congrats to Tarantino to have reached 200 M for the first time in his career. Congrats to him for reaching 300 M…soon.

    Cograts to Brad for having two blockbusters in a row, R rated at that, reaching 300+ M !!!

    @Loves it:
    I don’t expect Maniston fans cherish Brad Pitt. Clearly they are the minority. It doesn’t matter. After all Maniston fan base is shrinking not many left there. Her latest box office flops are the proof. Meanwhile Brad Pitt’s fan base is expanding bigger than ever. He is the biggest movie star in the world.

    I love Charlene and Angie. I think they are both fascinating, beautiful and talented women. Both have interesting stories to tell and I don’t like the idea of people treating Charlene like she was some sort of threat to Angie. In fact I would like to see a serious film made with both of them working together (add Monica Bellucci and oh my….). Just my two cents.

    Neil -
    .
    You’re not alone. I’ve been staying out of this convo because it seems pointless to me – but I really, really, really just do not understand all the Charlize bashing. Not only is she no threat to Angie, but unlike X Charlize is actually very talented and doesn’t spend her life plotting ways to get media attention. There are a lot of very talented actresses out there who have a string of box office duds to their names. So what? There was a time when Angie was one of those women, too. The fact of the matter is – movies featuring male actors fare better with the public. The end. Look at all the bad movies Jim Carrey, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, etc, have made. They keep getting movies funded. Equally talented actresses are most often relegated to the girlfriend roles.
    .
    Chick flicks just don’t make as much money at the box office. And bear in mind, this in no way let’s X off the hook. She consistently makes bad movies and has the bad reviews to prove it.
    These other actresses are making critically acclaimed movies and they’re just not doing well at the box office. There are so few good roles for women that all of the best actresses have to fight for those roles. “The Tourist” ain’t one of them. “Changeling” was a movie that every actress in HW set their cap on and Brian Glazer and Ron Howard chose Angie. Right now Halle Berry can’t get a plum role to save her ife. Angie’s in an eviable position because she can get just about any role she wants and doesn’t want to work more than once a year. So Charlize is no threat to Angie and all this bashing is pointless. I can understand if you just plain don’t like her, but there’s no contest going on between Angie and Charlize.
    .
    BTW, re: the idea of Angie and Charlize in a movie together? I can see them in a Thelma & Louise-type movie or maybe a film-noir 40s throwback. Speaking of film noir – I’ve always thought Angie would be great in the Barbara Stanwyck role from Double Indemnity.

  • The Bruiser

    @well:

    Just like Renee Zellweger’s last 2 flops in a row mainly New in Town and My One and Only. But I bet Renee will still keep working. And let’s not forget all the flops Nicole Kidman has had in the last 5 years but guess what, she is still working. Just like Jennifer Aniston will keep working.

  • The Bruiser

    In fact, name me one, ONE actress that hasn’t had her share of flops and is still working. The only actress I can think of is Oscar winner Geena Davis who went from films to TV and then her TV show flopped. Poor Geena is nowhere to be found.

    Maniston is not in the same league of Renee and Nicole and never will be. She is not even as talent as Meg Ryan is however she is heading the direction of Meg’s career.

    Perfect (for the fist time I have to agree with you).
    Male stars make bad movies (like Couples Retreat this weekend) and succeeds sometimes. Male stars make more money.
    I said this about two weeks ago. This is obvious.
    This is why I think Angie should do more movies now.
    This time is her best (30s is the best for females stars).
    I hope she sign for this movie (or other).
    She is a movie star, not a baby machine like some people think (in this blog).

Only a complete moron wouln’t realize that Brad and Angie gave TWO SEPARATE ANSWERS? The “baggage” Brad referred to was their relationship and interacting as colleagues on a set, keeping the two separate and not taking work home with them – not to mention dealing with the media and ratzi constantly meddling in the shoot. Meanwhile Angie is being more pragmatic and saying they’ve agreed that their family comes before work and they want one parent available to the children at all times. BUT…the troll got something completely different out of Brad’s answer. The calisthentics the trolls do to twist Brad and Angie’s words never ceases to amuse me.

    She is famous because of the movies and she can do movies and mantain the family’s priority.

One of the posters wrote she went to see the movie with her husband and 3 other couples. They do those movie dates once a month I think and after the movie she said they went to dinner to discuss it. I was like WTF? Discuss a movie like misManagement, and with 3 other couples? Wow, how profound. Needless to say I think that poster lied and she probably was no other than our Ellie.
