Liev Schreiber will star opposite Angelina Jolie in Salt, the spy thriller that was originally dubbed Edwin A. Salt and was supposed to feature Tom Cruise as the title character before he underwent a gender modification and was recast as Jolie.
The title character is now known as Evelyn A. Salt, and she is a CIA operative who is accused of being a Russian spy. Her accusers think she is trying to assassinate the president, and she goes on the run while trying to reunite with her family, prove her innocence, and find out who is really behind the plot. Schreiber will play Salt's boss and her friend in the CIA ranks. Chiwetel Ejiofor is also negotiating to star in the film. He would play a CIA counterintelligence officer.
Columbia will release the spy thriller, which is on track to shoot in New York next month.
