Angelina Jolie: 'Silver Linings Playbook' Role?

Angelina Jolie‘s schedule might be getting a bit busier!

Later this week, the 36-year-old megawatt actress is scheduled to meet with director David O. Russell for his latest project, The Silver Linings Playbook, JustJared.com has learned exclusively.

Mark Wahlberg is set to star in the comedy, which will be an adaptation of Matthew Quick‘s novel of the same name.

Synopsis: “Pat Peoples (Wahlberg) is down on his luck. The former high school history teacher has just been released from a mental institution and placed in the care of his mother. Not one to be discouraged, Pat believes he has only been on the inside for a few months – rather than four years – and plans on reconciling with his estranged wife.”

Angelina may also be reprising her role as Evelyn Salt in the sequel to the action thriller Salt.

Angie is a wanted woman. Love it.

Sorry Jared but Angelina’s meetings are never made public before it happens, someone is trying to hype their project by linking Angelina’s name to it.

A comedy? GREAT!!!!!!!!!! The last one she did was a kind of dark comedy MMS but I think a real comedy was a loooong time ago in Life or Something Like It.

nah…i dont believe this…name dropping,maybe.

Haters are confused (and jealous) admirers. Amazing how people that claim their lives are going so well could have such hate for a family and accomplished woman like Angie or her children. Speaks volumes.

Mark Wahlberg and Angelina Jolie, wow , great comedians. I’m already laughing for all the wrong reasons, hee.

momma,,,where are yous?

Sure, you have an exclusive…Anything to have AJ’s name linked to bull_shite.

She’s in demand isn’t she?

It doesn’t sound like something Angelina would do. Mark Wahlberg? hmmm. Better if it were Steve Carrell. I do like the idea that she should look for quality comedic scripts where she’s playing just a regular person. Not romcoms though.

Until it’s official it’s just “in talks”. This means nothing. Even all of us can be “in talks” for something lol

WOW!! Sounds exciting! I hope this goes through!

As much as I love Angie doing some comedies , I don’t want her to do it in a very near future. She has so much in her plate right now… I’m talking about the movie she wrote/ about to produce, Cleopatra, Salt.
I think what one of fan wrote above probably right, they just want to hype their project by using her name.
