Angelina Jolie replaces Tom Cruise in spy flick



Tbdangelinajolie081308 The spy thriller Edwin A. Salt shows the main character is a master of diguise, going from man to woman overnight. Angelina Jolie is set to replace Tom Cruise as the title character, a CIA officer accused of being a Russian spy who has to clear his name, Variety reports.

That means the script will need some minor rewrites to suit Jolie's gender, since Cruise just recently dropped his interest in the project, probably because he realized it was just Mission: Impossible all over again. Also on Angie's plate: possible involvement in an adaptation of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, which would likely be the longest movie ever made.
