For months Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie have been working overseas on the set of The Tourist. It’s a thriller directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck that forces both actors to bring their A-game. This is one of those films where nothing is what it appears to be and everything happens for a reason. Sam Worthington was originally attached to play the male lead but dropped out and lucky for us Depp came on board. Find out more about The Tourist below…
The storyline for the film centers on an American tourist (Depp) drawn into a web of intrigue and danger by a female Interpol agent (Jolie) who plans to use him as her pawn. Before production began Depp wasn’t the only new face to board this project, Jolie was also a replacement for fellow Oscar winner Charlize Theron who was the first choice to play the female lead. Therefore, we went from Worthington and Theron to Depp and Jolie in a matter of months
Jolie’s character looks like she’s up to no good and poor Depp looks like he’s about to be eaten alive. We wonder if the above photo is when they first meet?
The Tourist is scheduled to hit theaters on February 16, 2011.
