Angelina Jolie in The Changeling

What a combination! Clint Eastwood and Angelina Jolie collaborating on a drama set in the 1920s?! Sounds like a surefire cinematic gem right here. Back in March was when the news about the film first hit, and it just started filming recently in Los Angeles. Not only is there a new photo of the gorgeous Angelina Jolie, but three new guys have also been added to the cast: Jeffrey Donovan, Colm Feore and John Malkovich. This is certainly one to look out for in the next few years, and if you're still not convinced, you may be once you see Angelina Jolie in costume.

The Changeling is directed by Clint Eastwood and written by J. Michael Straczynski, who wrote the "He-Man" TV show from the 80s, was the creator of "Babylon 5," and has also written a few episodes of "Murder, She Wrote." The story follows a woman (Jolie) whose son goes missing in 1920s Los Angeles. The police return the wrong child and the woman is thrown into an insane asylum for disagreeing with the LAPD. When it seems that her real son has been murdered by a child serial killer and the child returned admits to fraud, she takes her case to the city council and takes down the mayor, the police chief and several corrupt officers, concurrently sparking changes in the insanity legislation.

I can't fully say a period piece like this will be box office gold, but at least I'm sure the film's going to be great. And coincidentally this is a film with a very strong female lead, so take that Warner Brothers! We'll definitely be following this one as it works its way to release sometine in 2008 to 2009.

Clint Eastwood has been solid the past few years. Let's hope that he keeps it up.
