Angelina Jolie wants to play more spy games. And, wouldn't you know it, so do we.
Sony Pictures has officially moved forward on the sequel to "Salt," last summer's rock 'em, sock 'em spy thriller, according to Deadline.
A sort of "The Bourne Identity" with a woman's touch, "Salt" starred Angelina Jolie as a CIA agent who ends up running for her life when she's revealed to be a Russian spy (or is she? You know how complicated these things can be). The high-speed international chase involves her changing her clothes and hairstyle a lot.
Kurt Wimmer, who wrote the original film, has signed on to write the "Salt" sequel. No details on Part II's plot have emerged yet, though we expect it will involve all sorts of government types still looking to apprehend the ever-elusive Evelyn Salt.
We liked "Salt." It was a good role for Angelina, allowing her to play a woman her actual age and still kick all sorts of ass. We'd watch her jump off bridges and slam onto the hoods of cars and kick guys in suits in the face again, for sure.
Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie's highly anticipated directorial debut, "In the Land of Blood and Honey," opens Dec. 23.
