Angelina Jolie has replaced Tom Cruise as the lead character in Edwin A. Salt. The spy thriller will be rewritten by scribe Kurt Wimmer (of awesome Equilibrium and awful Ultraviolet fame) in order to accommodate the gender change.

Jolie is close to a deal to play the title character, a CIA officer who’s accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy and must elude capture long enough to establish her innocence.

There shouldn’t be a need for too many revisions. All they need to do is change “he” to “she”. And you know that scene where Tom Cruise makes out then sleeps with a smoking hot chick? You can keep that part in.
