Angelina Jolie and Darren Aronofsky To Adapt Ron Rash's Serena: A Novel for the Big Screen 2010-03-01 11:00:25

Angelina Jolie Has Blood on Her Hands

Meaty role alert: Angelina Jolie is reportedly eyeing an adaptation of author Ron Rash's Serena: A Novel, in which she would star.

The story follows George and Serena Pemberton, a husband and wife who move from Boston to North Carolina for the timber business in 1929. Serena quickly proves to be one of the boys, but this is not your run-of-the-mill pioneer story — think of her more as a female counterpart to There Will Be Blood's Daniel Plainview. Serena's tenacity has a menacing side, as she offs anyone who doesn't fall into line with her. Things go particularly awry when she finds out that can't bear children and sets out to kill her husband's illegitimate son in retaliation. Darren Aronofsky of The Wrestler is looking to direct the drama.

Sounds like the makings of an Oscar vehicle for Jolie, though there is one thing that could trip her up: that Boston turned Southern accent. Yikes. Bring on the vocal coach!

Have you read Serena? Do you think Jolie has the chops to pull off the role?

I think she is best in darker films like Girl Interrupted, Changeling, Gia, etc. So this should be really good! :)

You all know this is perfect for Angelina; she is the only person for this role. I can't wait to see her in it, if she gets the part.
