Angelina Jolie is Wanted

She’s joining the thriller with James McAvoy

When she’s not busy shopping for orphans or visiting far-flung locales for charity, Angelina Jolie likes to slip in the odd film.

Her latest is Universal’s graphic novel adaptation Wanted, which finds James McAvoy discovering that his late father was an assassin. Forced to follow in dad’s footsteps, he starts a crash course in becoming a killing machine.

Which is where Jolie comes in. Putting all the gunplay she learned on Mr And Mrs Smith to good use, she’ll play a master assassin who shows McAvoy the ropes.

Morgan Freeman is also on board with Night Watch’s Timur Bekmambetov at the helm. Everything kicks off this May in Eastern Europe.
