Charlize opts out and Angelina steps in


South African-born actress Charlize Theron has decided to give up her role in the Spyglass-produced thriller The Tourist. She has been attached to the production for some time and her decision to opt out has opened up the role for Angelina Jolie, according to sources quoted by The Hollywood Reporter.

The project is now also seeking a director, as Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) is no longer on board to direct the project.
Production has been tentatively set for early 2010, which means the producers need to find a director quickly.

The film is based on a remake of the French thriller "Anthony Zimmer" from 2005. It centres on an American tourist who, on behalf of Interpol, goes undercover to entrap a former lover who’s a suspected global criminal.
