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.
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.
