Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck to Direct Angelina Jolie in “The Tourist”

Angelina Jolie and Florian Henckel Donnersmarck

While it was rumored last week, IGN has now confirmed that Angelina Jolie will be replacing Charlize Theron and Variety now says that Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck is tipped to direct Spyglass thriller “The Tourist” which is set to start production in February 2010.

“The Tourist” will be the first movie for von Donnersmarck since the German director’s 2006 breakout The Lives of Others, which won the Academy Award for foreign-language film.

A remake of 2005 French thriller “Anthony Zimmer“, the story follows an American tourist (Sam Worthington) finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent (Angelina Jolie) uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair.

Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2) wrote the screenplay.

“The Tourist” is scheduled for release in 2011.

    Why anybody tells the truth must be a hater of this family?Can’t regular people make any comments about this family? Do we have to love everything they do? I think they are making so many mistakes and they are not perfect at all.Yet, they want people to think that way. That’s why we ALWAYS read about how perfect, how happy, best actor/actress they are.

    They are as regular as anybody else. So why do they try so hard to hide their mistakes, weaknesses? Why can’t they be honest to people? Why does the media have to kiss their a**s all the time?

    If there is an article about somebody else being great, immediately an action is taken. Roles are taken away, articles written to trash them for months until everybody believes that there is nobody else greater than BRANGELINA. If you still don’t believe ,then you either a hater or a”NAIVE” person!!!
    How about calling them GANGELINA from now on?
