Production photos from Phillip Noyce"s spy thriller, Salt,
were revealed by Sony Pictures. Angelina Jolie, who stars in the
film, plays a CIA officer who is ousted as a Russian sleeper spy.
She must avoid getting captured by her CIA colleagues, who suspect
that she wants to assassinate the president.
Salt was supposed to originally be a star vehicle for Tom
Cruise. Co-scripted by Kurt Wimmer and Brian Helgeland from
Wimmer"s story idea, Sony hopes that the film appeals to action
lovers who flocked to see Jolie in Wanted ($134.5 million), Mr.
& Mrs. Smith ($186.3 million) and the two Tomb Raider video
game adaptations ($131 and $65 million, respectively).
The stills have been put up on Sony"s official Web site for the
film. Salt will hit theatres on July 23. The latest trailer will be
put up on Apple"s official site on Thursday, April 1.
