Producers of the sequel to “The Thomas Crown Affair” have told Angelina Jolie to eat a funnel cake or something. Mmmm….funnel cakes.
Last year, it was rumored that Angie Jo signed on to star opposite Pierce Brosnan in the sequel called “The Topkapi Affair.” Paul Verhoeven is supposed to direct this mess. According to the Mirror (via SF Chronicle), they have asked her to gain 28 pounds. A source said, “Ideally they want Angelina to put on 28 pounds for the role. It is going to be very physically demanding, which is why they want her to carry the extra weight. They don’t want a reprise of what happened with ‘Wanted,’ where she was fainting and they had to take her costumes in.”
If she gains an extra 28 pounds, that would put her at what weight? An even 100? And I guess if she gains 27 pounds, she’s out. It’s 28 or bust!
She should just borrow Meg Ryan’s fat suit. Better yet, they should keep Angie out of this shit and bring back Rene Russo. She hasn’t made a movie since 2005 and it’s time for a comeback.
