Who Is Salt?

Angelina Goes 'MacGyver' in Latest 'Salt' Clip

That mysterious question is so Summer 2010. The new mystery question for Summer 2011 is…

Who asked for Salt 2?

The answer is the movie-going public, since the Angelina Jolie action spy thriller scored around $300 million worldwide at the box office, making a sequel as inevitable as Evelyn Salt stopping the nuclear missiles at the end. Sony has tapped Salt writer Kurt Wimmer for a draft, which he’s currently penning. Jolie is apparently interested in returning to the role, provided the project comes together in a way she’s happy with. So… a bigger paycheck?

Originally, Salt was written for Tom Cruise, but after discussions about the project, Cruise felt the character was too close to Ethan Hunt from the Mission: Impossible series. Jolie was interested in starring in her own James Bond type series, and that led to the Salt rewrite. The sequel is being written for Jolie, but maybe she’ll opt out and they’ll rewrite the part for Will Smith or something. (Deadline)

Phillip Noyce Is The Helmer/Director Of ‘Hunter/Killer’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/phillip-noyce-is-the-helmerdirector-of-hunterkiller/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/phillip-noyce-is-the-helmerdirector-of-hunterkiller/#comments Fri, 18 Feb 2011 06:04:41 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=28096 Noyce gave up the chance to direct the sequel to 'Salt' and chose this submarine movie instead. I guess once you know who Salt is, nothing else about that film really matters.

The question of whether or not Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, Salt) would direct Hunter/Killer has finally been answered, just like the question of “Who Is Salt?” was finally answered. That’s a big affirmative on Noyce, and spoiler alert: Salt is Angelina Jolie. Sorry if I ruined the big surprise for you.

Hunter/Killer is based on the novel Firing Point by Don Keith and George Wallace, which has a far less retarded name. Here’s a synopsis of the submarine drama:

“…an untested submarine captain [must] work with a Navy SEAL team to rescue the Russian president, who has bee taken prisoner during a military coup, in an effort to stop a rogue Russian General from igniting World War III.”

The script was written by Jamie Ross, who penned X-Men: First Class. The trailer for First Class looks awesome, so I think it’s safe to make the leap that this will be an excellently written film, assuming the entire length of the movie is 3 minutes or so. (/Film)

Phillip Noyce Could Direct ‘Hunter Killer’, Should Consider A New Title http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/phillip-noyce-could-direct-hunter-killer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/phillip-noyce-could-direct-hunter-killer/#comments Mon, 14 Feb 2011 21:25:51 +0000 Dave Horwitz http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=26810 The 'Salt' director is in talks to step in for Pierre Morel.

Phillip Noyce is in talks to step in for Pierre Morel (Taken, District B-13) as director of Relativity Media’s Hunter Killer. The film, based on the George Willis and Don Keith novel “Firing Point,” concerns the teaming up of a sub commander and a group of Navy Seals who must rescue of the Russian President and defeat an admiral who is attempting a military coup.

Noyce is also attached to a project called Timeless, so whichever gets off the ground first will likely be the one he goes with. Noyce, who last directed Salt (but won’t be directing the sequel), has a last name that sounds like what a Frat boy says when he discovers a second keg. Hunter Killer sounds like what an 8 year old titles a screenplay he’s writing for his action figures to star in, but has the potential to be a decent action thriller. (Latino Review)

Phillip Noyce Peace-Outties On ‘Salt’ Sequel http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/phillip-noyce-peace-outties-on-salt-sequel/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/phillip-noyce-peace-outties-on-salt-sequel/#comments Wed, 22 Dec 2010 18:03:37 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=13220 Remember this past summer when Salt came out and everyone was super excited and saying things like, "Hey, I just saw Salt for like the fifth time. Probably gonna go back later today and see it again." Me neither. But, hey, there's talk of a sequel!

"Seriously, though. Did you actually bang your brother?"

Remember this past summer when Salt came out and everyone was super excited and saying things like, “Hey, I just saw Salt for like the fifth time. Probably gonna go back later today and see it again.” Yeah, I don’t remember that happening either. Even so, there are talks of a sequel thanks to Angelina Jolie’s box office appeal overseas. Director Phillip Noyce, however, is all U-S-A! U-S-A!, and won’t return for a sequel. He tells Moviehole:

“Those 3 [alternate] Blu-ray cuts [of the film] represent just about everything I have to offer on Evelyn Salt. If there ever is a sequel, better it’s directed by someone with a completely fresh take on what I believe could be a totally entertaining and complex series of stories.”

Then that someone will title that sequel Mission: Impossible 4. So, with Noyce not willing to stare at Angelina Jolie for sixteen hours a day, what’s next? One project he’s had preliminary talks about is Our Wild Life, the Kenya-based story of wildlife conservationist Dame Daphne Sheldrick. The project was previously known as Elephant Orphanage with Nick Cassavetes attached, but he bailed when he realized that sounded like the name of a movie Brendan Fraser would make.

Besides, considering the content, the "MacGyver" reference is much more appropriate.In the latest clip from Salt, Angelina's character reacts to being cornered like any good super spy would by constructing a rocket launcher out of a fire extinguisher, an office chair and some common "interrogation room" chemicals. Granted, the CIA may keep rocket fuel in their interrogation rooms, which is why I'm willing to suspend disbelief.Watch Angelina Jolie go "MacGyver" after the jump.

I think you'll find it's easier to understand, unless of course you call the Motherland home. Salt, or as it could be titled, Mission Impossible 4: The Search for Ethan Hunt's Identity (Again), stars Angelina Jolie as Evelyn Salt, a CIA officer who swore an oath to duty, honor, and country. When she is accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy, Salt goes on the run to clear her name and ultimately prove she is a patriot. Seems like a great deal of work to prove you're a patriot, when all you need is one of these: Angelina Jolie and a conservative, right-wing wiener dog save the country. Talk about a box office smash hit. Check out the Salt teaser trailer after the jump!
