Salt TV series in the works from Sony
According to Screen Daily, Sony Pictures Entertainment is in development on a television series remake of the spy hit Salt, which Angelina Jolie headlined in 2010. They are currently pitching the potential Salt TV series to broadcasters and co-production partners at the European Film Market in Berlin.
“We want to bring it to Europe in a completely different way,” said Diego Suarez, senior vice president of international television production at Sony.
The original film, which grossed over $293 million worldwide, starred Angelina Jolie as CIA officer Evelyn Salt who, after being accused of being a Russian spy, goes on the run in an attempt to prove her innocence.
Back in 2011, it was announced that Jolie was expected to reprise her role for a feature sequel, which entered the writing stage with Kurt Wimmer (who wrote the original) drafting, though ultimately nothing came of it.
