First Look at Angelina Jolie in Salt

Well one thing’s for sure: Angelina Jolie sure looks better in that wig than Tom Cruise. Then again, I’ve never seen Tom Cruise in a wig, so maybe… Nah. Anyways, USA Today has your first look at Angelina Jolie in the spy thriller “Salt”, previously “Edwin A. Salt” when Tom Cruise was still starring. He’s gone, she’s in, and the movie is now just called “Salt”. First pics of Jolie in the role below.

But first, here’s an excerpt from the USA Today article:

The most recognizable woman in the world is going undercover.

Angelina Jolie begins work today on Salt, a spy thriller about a rogue CIA operative who tries to clear her name after she is accused of being a Russian sleeper agent — perhaps falsely, perhaps not.

Among the many different looks she has in the film are a soft-looking, all-business blonde and a raven-haired femme fatale who easily could be concealing a dagger or a gun.

The film co-stars Liev Schreiber (Defiance) as Winter, her ally and supervisor in the CIA’s Russia office, and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Children of Men) as Peabody, a counterintelligence officer who tries to take her down.

Phillip Noyce, no stranger to spy thrillers (he previously directed the Jack Ryan movies “A Clear and Present Danger” and “Patriot Games”) directs.
