Johnny Depp is in talks to replace actor Sam Worthington (Avatar, Terminator) in the upcoming film ‘The Tourist.’
‘The Tourist’ is a remake of a french spy thriller ‘Anthony Zimmer,’ with the lead playing a tourist drawn into the investigation of a female Interpol agent (Angelina Jolie).
Quite frankly, I’m sort of tired of these Jolie-starred action/spy/thrillers. Worthington and director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck have dropped out of the film. Apparently Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men) is also in talks to join the project.
This isn’t the first time the cast of characters involved with this film has been messed up. It originally was set to star Charlize Theron and Tom Cruise.
Filming is set to begin in February.
