Angelina Jolie in new “Salt” photos; Trailer expected Thursday
Sony Pictures revealed more production photos from Phillip Noyce’s spy thriller “Salt,” according to slash-film. In the movie, Angelina Jolie plays a CIA officer who is outed as a Russian sleeper spy. Over the course of the film, she must evade capture by her CIA colleagues, who suspect her of attempting to assassinate the president.
“Salt” originally was conceived as a star vehicle for Tom Cruise. It’s co-scripted by Kurt Wimmer and Brian Helgeland from Wimmer’s story idea. It’s Sony’s hope the film appeals to action junkies who flocked to see Jolie in “Wanted” ($134.5 million), “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” ($186.3 million) and the two “Tomb Raider” video game adaptations ($131 and $65 million, respectively).
