Angelina Jolie Is the Next Jason Bourne


No, there's not a gender switch-up in a fourth Bourne movie...
Instead, Angelina Jolie is in talks to play real-life intelligence operative Kathi Lynn Austin, a contractor for the U.N. Security Council. Austin has had "adventures in arms trafficking and terrorism" in Africa, Europe, Southeast Asia and Central America.

The story will be this:
According to Variety, "The drama will focus on a fictional arms dealer inspired by Victor Bout, the shadowy Russian who is considered one of the world's most prolific dealers in illegal munitions."

What's this about Bourne, then?
Jolie's manager Geyer Kosinski came up with this idea after searching for "a premise that's rooted in reality and has franchise potential." The hope is that this movie will become like the Bourne series — but with a lady.
