Angelina Jolie Might Yet Get A Salt Sequel – New Writer Hired

Kurt Wimmer‘s original screenplay for the undercover spy caper Salt famously revolved around a male protagonist who was later gender-swapped when Angelina Jolie signed on to take the lead. The film worked out moderately well, and Jolie did seem rather at home in the part.

And so Wimmer took a crack at a sequel script.

But it was just a few months after Wimmer got stuck in that word got out: Jolie wasn’t pleased with what she was reading and she wouldn’t commit to taking part in Wimmer’s vision of a follow-up.

I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that the studio decided to keep Jolie attached and it was Wimmer who moved on.

Now, after many months of searching, there’s a new writer on the project. The Hollywood Reporter name Becky Johnston as the next to take a pass – and if she can satisfy Jolie, then we probably have a sequel on our hands. Maybe they’ll go back to Phillip Noyce to direct again, maybe Ms. Jolie will have issues there also.

Johnston doesn’t have any big, slam-bam action films on her resume but her latest picture, Alfred Newman, has some Salt-style identity shifting at its core.

You know, if you look at the original Salt‘s box-office or Cinemascore a sequel seems like an obvious move. At the same time, do you know anybody clamouring for more?
