Salt (Noyce, 2010) Jolie & Ejiofor in spy thriller written by Kurt Wimmer


HD Trailer | IMDB | 23 July 2010

As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt’s efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: “Who Is Salt?”




This looks pretty good.

And here's an embedded version of the (rather gripping) trailer.

Lets see... a Philip Noyce action/conspiracy thriller starring Angelina Jolie shot by the cinematographer that did There Will Be Blood ... that stuff is all win in my book. Wimmer is mostly miss with me and the guy who I'm assuming did a rewrite is also hit/miss with me (Mystic River and Payback were fine, but both are based on books to begin with.).

Hope this is good, looks fun.

Looks okay, but I'm not eagerly anticipating yet.

I can see why Tom Cruise opted out. With him in the role, you may as well call it Mission: Impossible IV. Although, what if Angelina were too grab her neck, rip off her mask, and reveal herself to be Ethan Hunt, M:I-style? If that were to happen, I don't think I'd ever watch Gia again.

It feels a little like "No Way Out" as well.

I have a friend who is a background character in this. This film was written with Cruise in mind, then he opted out because the payday was too low. They then rewrote the story for Jolie.

I like Jolie but the whole premise of the film seems dated. Russian spies in the U.S.? That may have been a hot topic a couple of decades ago, but nowadays I don't think anyone believes that stuff still goes on.

Tom Cruise being in this would be hilarious. This is essentially a contemporary version of Minority Report.

Lol. The first thing I thought with this wk's headlines is they were a brilliant marketing move for the film!

You're not the only one. I heard a guy on the radio saying the same thing.

Would have been funnier though, if this was posted 6 months ago.

Exactly what I've gotten from the trailers. Really looking forward to it though.

The only interest this movie would give me is if the trailer loudly proclaimed "From the director of Blind Fury!"
