According to ComingSoon.net, 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.
Does this sound exciting, or does Sony need to move away from movie to TV properties and start thinking about purely original productions?
