Angelina signs for spy film

Angelina Jolie to play the female version of Bourne in new movie

Angelina Jolie has signed up to star as a female version of Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne character.

Jolie will play a female spy, with her character being based on Kathi Lynn Austin, a former intelligence operative who worked for the UN security council. Austin worked around the world on terrorism and trafficking cases and recently sold her story to Paramount.

The film has been described as being ‘similar in spirit’ to the hugely successful Jason Bourne trilogy, and could see Angelina starring as Austin for a series of films. She is currently shooting The Changeling, directed by Clint Eastwood.
