In Salt Angelina Jolie stars as a CIA officer who goes on the run after she is accused of being a Russian sleeper spy. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Liev Schreiber, Daniel Olbrychski, Zoe Lister Jones, and Kevin O’Donnell also star. The script was originally intended for Tom Cruise but rewritten for Jolie.
It might be fun, but I’m not ready to hop on board just yet. It looks a little Bourne-lite to me, and director Phillip Noyce has a bit of a checkered past (running the gamut of Sliver and The Saint to Clear and Present Danger and Patriot Games). Salt hits theaters next July.
