Angelina Jolie is in negotiations to star in ‘Unforgiven’, an Americanized film remake of the 2009 British miniseries. Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) is set to write the project with Graham King producing. The project is said to be on the fast track, though Jolie won’t sign on until she sees a finished script.
The original miniseries centered on Ruth Slater, a 34 year-old woman who is released from prison where she’s been incarcerated since the age of seventeen for the murder of two policemen. Ruth hopes to reconnect with the sister she hasn’t seen since childhood and to readjust to life in the outside world, but it turns out the sons of one of the cops she killed are out to get their revenge.
