Jolie Leaves Wanted 2 and Gravity for Serena?

Angelina Jolie has never been accused of stability but this is getting harder to keep up with.

The sexy star reportedly dropped out of Wanted 2 late last week in favour of a sci-fi thriller called Gravity, and now she is passing on Gravity and in talks to adapt a period novel called Serena.

Fused Film offers up:

So what is Jolie going to do? she has passed on two projects only to now land a pairing with director Darren Aronofsky. They are both in discussions to develop a big-screen adaptation of Ron Rash’s 2008 period novel Serena: A Novel the project would be a starring vehicle for Jolie.

“Set in the rugged mountains of 1929 North Carolina, “Serena” follows a man named George Pemberton and his new bride, Serena, as they create a timber empire. Serena not only takes to the woods, but she also pushes her husband to commit more and more ruthless acts. When she learns she cannot bear a child, Serena sets out to murder the son her husband fathered illegitimately.”

Jolie is a widely capable actress. When you hear she is going to play soft and vulnerable, you instantly think its possible. Hard and tough? Sure. Little bit crazy? Well lets not typecast her right?

I could seriously see Jolie playing this too. She does crazy pretty well, and she adapts well to period peices. She seems to be able to pull off just about any look.

But there are still hours left in the day for her to pass on this too. Just to keep us on our toes.

  1. Although Angelina was great in Wanted and all of her other action packed movies that kept viewers and fans satisfied, I think change is good. We always see her in these tough girl, mysterious, dominant female character that has high sex appeal, a new type of movie is something to look forward too. I also think its better for her to deny roles that she doesnt want to play rather than to just accept them, just because other people want to see her in the movie. Part of being an actress is being versitle so i look forward to her new movie! I know she will do great!

  2. LOL, wow, this is getting crazy.

    This new movie sounds really awesome. But so did Gravity. I’m also looking forward to Wanted 2 and I’d love to see miss Jolie in all 3 films. Too bad that I guess the shooting scheduling for all of them is around the same time or is it she just can’t make up her damn mind? :)

    Is she still set to be in Sin City 2?

  3. Well now look who’s movie hoping. At first i was really looking forward to Jolie being in Wanted 2, an dissapointed she left for Gravity. Then i was all geared up for her being in the space thriller Gravity with director Alfonso Cuaron an she leaves for Serena.

    Hopefully Serena is what she thinks will be the best role for her, because it would be a new role for her, with the setting being in early 1929 an acting betrayed (i guest) an seeking her husbands child death.I also think she will look great in this time period.
