Washington, Nov 18 : Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has confirmed that she will be replacing Tom Cruise in the spy flick 'Edwin A. Salt'.
While on an interview with BBC Radio, the stunner said, "I'm working on a film called Salt. And it's with [Bone Collector director] Phillip Noyce. And that's it."
Earlier it was reported that Jolie was in talks for the role after Cruise dropped out. Infact, workers had reworked the lead character - a CIA officer falsely accused of being a Russian agent - to be a woman, reports Us magazine.
In a different BBC News interview last week, Jolie said she returns to work in February, however, after that, she won't work for a year.
"I like being home a lot. First and foremost, I have a lot of children, and I need to make sure they're growing right and they've got us there for them," the mum-of-six said.
She said she plans to "fade away" from acting in the years to come.
Said the star, "I'm not so worried that I want to keep this pace up and try to be something and be a celebrity."
