Jolie & Derrickson Stand For Earth?

Angelina Jolie has been offered the lead female role in 20th Century Fox’s remake of the science fiction classic “The Day the Earth Stood Still” reports The IESB.

Also apparently being offered a key part, the director’s chair no less, is “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” helmer Scott Derrickson.

Fox apparently came out and denied said claims that they had signed, yet the site sticks by its original story that the pair are under consideration.

Derrickson’s name came up yesterday in relation to an adaptation of John Milton’s epic Armageddon poem “Paradise Lost”.
