Hollywood's favorie femme fatale Angelina Jolie has signed on to play an Interpol agent in the Spyglass thriller The Tourist.
After much consternation, the project is finally finding some much needed direction. The project, which is a remake of the 2005 French film Anthony Zimmer, was originally a Tom Cruise vehicle that would have co-starred Charlize Theron. However, Cruise pulled out to pursue Knight & Day, and Terminator Salvation's Sam Worthington snagged his spot.
"The project languished, however, until Spyglass drew interest from Jolie," reports Variety. Spyglass is working to secure The Lives of Others director
In The Tourist, Jolie's character apparently "draws an unwitting American tourist into her attempt to locate a criminal who was once her lover."
If all goes according to plan, we should see The Tourist in theaters sometime in 2011.
