Salt Action 1

Angelina Jolie was caught filming a hard core action scene recently for her upcoming film, Salt. Jolie stars as a government agent who’s forced to prove her innocence when she is accused of being a Russian sleeper spy. She goes on the run to find out who’s behind her set up, and uses her special ops training to get information. The film was originally set to star Tom Cruise as the lead, but when he backed out Jolie was offered the film. The character was changed from Edwin to Evelyn Salt and the rest is history.

Check out some behind the scenes photos of Jolie performing a stunt after the jump.

I wonder who or what she’s running from? Perhaps the paparazzi? Salt co-star’s Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor and is set for release in July 23, 2010.
