Jolie Replaces Theron On “Tourist”

Angelina Jolie is apparently in talks to replace Charlize Theron in the thriller “The Tourist” for Spyglass Entertainment says Risky Biz Blog.

A remake of a 2005 French thriller, the story centers on an American tourist who, on behalf of Interpol, goes undercover to entrap a former lover who’s a suspected global criminal.

Originally slated to have Tom Cruise in the titular role, Aussie hunk Sam Worthington replaced the “Mission: Impossible” star earlier this year and remains attached to play the lead male role.

Director Bharat Nalluri (“Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day”) was set to direct but is off the project as of last week.
