Jolie Staying Busy With Wanted

Just last week, Angelina Jolie said she wanted to spend some time as a stay-at-home mom with her ever-expanding brood. But it seems turning down movie roles is not her strong suit. After signing on for Clint Eastwood's next movie, The Changeling, which begins shooting this Fall, the actress has also agreed to star in Wanted, an action film based on a graphic novel.

The movie, which begins shooting in Eastern Europe in May, also stars James McAvoy (Last King of Scotland) and Morgan Freeman and will be directed by Kazakh filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov. According to Variety:

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.

Well, I guess if a role is written just for you, it's tough to turn it down. And I guess if the Jolie-Pitts really want to adopt an entire soccer team, they're gonna need a little extra cash. At the very least, the movie sounds pretty cool, don't you think?
