A new interview with producer Graham King seems to confirm Johnny's involvement in The Tourist, so we may as well start a thread for it!
The film will star Johnny and Angelina Jolie and will start in February. King did not mention the director, but it was rumored that Alfonso Cuaron was in talks to direct. (Actually, I just checked IMDb and it has him listed for director, though of course they may have just heard the same rumors we did. But Johnny is still listed as "rumored" for the moment).
Christopher McQuarrie writing it increases the chances of it being pretty damn good. I'm sick of AJ too, mostly because of the tabloid crap though. I think I can suspend my revulsion long enough to get through it
meh not super excited. Not because of Jolie, I think she's a good actress. It just sounds soooo mainstream. In a bad way. Hopefully just on paper. If he [King] produced The Aviator and The Departed I can deal I guess I just have the same vision of all Jolie's movies.
I feel ya Em - I hope this is different from most of her roles. Doesn't sound like it on paper, but maybe it'll be good. With a good director and good writing, and of course Johnny, it could be worthwhile. I'll see how I feel when the previews come out
