Angelina Jolie has joined the cast of WANTED, the adaptation of the Mark Millar/JG Jones comic, Variety reports. Globe-trotting baby-collector Jolie joins James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman in the film, which will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov whose hard-to-spell name is sure to lean to much mirth here at Stately Beat Manor.
Pic will be Jolie’s next, with shooting to begin in Eastern Europe in May.
McAvoy will play a young man who discovers his father is an assassin, only to learn shortly thereafter that his dad has been murdered. The youth is drafted to follow in his father’s footsteps. Jolie will play an assassin who teaches the ropes to the wannabe killer.
Script was originated by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, and Jolie took the role after a rewrite by Dean Georgaris (“Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life”) to tailor the character for her.
Yay! More pictures of Brangenlina!!!
