Liev Schreiber takes Salt

Chiwetel Ejiofor's also on board the spy thriller

Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor are negotiating to star opposite Angelina Jolie in Phillip Noyce’s spy thriller Salt.

The film’s been through a fair few changes – it was originally intended for Tom Cruise, but then went through a cinematic sex change for Angelina to take the lead.

Jolie is Evelyn Salt, a CIA agent outed as a Russian sleeper agent by a defector.

She goes on the run to try and prove her innocence while keeping her family safe and attempting to prove who is the real traitor.
