Liev Schreiber takes Salt

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.
