‘Collector’ acquires Jolie

Actress to star with Washington in U thriller

NEW YORK — Angelina Jolie has been signed to co-star with Denzel Washington for director Phillip Noyce in Universal’s “The Bone Collector,” the adaptation of Jeffrey Deaver’s novel about the search for a serial killer.

Jolie, who won a Golden Globe Award for best actress for the TNT biopic “Wallace” and just finished co-starring with Billy Bob Thornton and John Cusack in Fox 2000’s “Pushing Tin,” will play a young Gotham cop whose aspirations to be assigned to child services are waylaid when she gets involved in the search for the serial killer.

She develops a pupil-mentor relationship with Washington, a quadriplegic police detective who is a forensics expert and steers her to solve the crime. The relationship is not unlike the Clarice Starling-Hannibal Lecter interplay in “Silence of the Lambs.”

The film is produced by Martin and Michael Bregman’s Bregman Prods., with script by Jeremy Iacone and Christopher Crowe.

Jolie, now starring in the Miramax ensemble pic “Dancing About Architecture,” is managed by Industry Entertainment’s Geyer Kosinski and agented by William Morris’ Emily Gerson.
