ANGIE IN, CRUISE OUT

New spy film Edwin A. Salt is undergoing a major sex change.  Reportedly, Tom Cruise is out and Angelina Jolie is in.

The espionage thriller was to have starred Tom Cruise, says Variety but now is being rewritten as a star vehicle for action mamma Angelina Jolie.

The tile character is a CIA agent accused of being a Russian sleeper spy who must elude capture prove her innocence.
                                             
Sources close to the project say it won’t take that much of a rewrite to change Ed to Edwina – probably a title change.

Angie is also in talks to topline Ayn Rand lit classic Atlas Shrugged.
