Edwin A. Salt start of a franchise?

We received some more tidbits about the Angelina Jolie-starring “Edwin A. Salt” (or whatever they end up calling it) this morning.

Firstly, Sony are said to be eyeing the film as the beginning of a new franchise. Jolie’s character would spin-off into sequels – a’la Jack Ryan, according to our tipster.

We’ve also been told that Jolie will be paid very handsomely for the film. “Jolie’s fee is reportedly a record for a female star”, says our source.

Meantime, with the change to a female lead, suddenly the role of the character’s spouse is being talked of as another star vehicle. Interesting. (Will Brad get a look in?)
