Angelina Jolie, who replaced Tom Cruise in a new movie, is determined to have the film made her way or not at all.
Tom Cruise was to have played the title role in Columbiaâ€™s spy thriller Edwin A. Salt but negotiations broke down.
And Angelina, 33, was hired instead, leading to a hurried change of title to Edwina Salt.
But no sooner had her casting been announced than Angelina, according to a source, ordered it to be changed again, to Evelyn Salt.
Now the actress is demanding a script overhaul by top screenwriter Brian Helgeland, an Oscar winner with L.A. Confidential, who is involved in the project.
A source revealed: “Angelina is determined to make sweeping changes before filming starts.”
The source added: “Sheâ€™s demanding the writers improve the dialogue before she sets foot on set.”
Sources say Angelina envisages Evelyn Salt as a rival to the blockbusting Bourne Identity series, starring Matt Damon.
