The screenplay of the action flick was written by Kurt Wimmer and originally the titular role went to Tom Cruise who declined the offer because of other commitments to projects and feared that the character was too close to his Mission Impossible character Ethan Hunt.

Angelina Jolie may play the role of infertile Serena
Oscar winner Angelina Jolie may star in the screen adaptation of Ron Rash’s chilling tale of greed, ambition, lust and corruption portraying an avaricious woman who can never give birth to children.
According to Splash news, the full-lipped beauty who was last seen in her 2008 release Changeling which won her a Oscar nod is in heavy duty discussions with Darren Aronofsky, the Golden Globe winning director and producer of the drama movie The Wrestler to make a movie of the 2008 tragic novel reminiscent of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Serena: A Novel written by American author Ron Rash.
The 34 year old doting mother of six children, three of whom she adopted, Angelina will play the role of the ruthless Serena who discovers that she can never have any biological children of her own, a character similar to that of Lady Macbeth.
Set in the backdrop of North Carolina Mountains of 1929, “Serena” played by Jolie along with her new husband George Pemberton creates a timber empire. The lady of the timber land not only proves herself to be the equal of any man, overseeing crews, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving her husband’s life in the wilderness but also goads her husband into committing heinous and ruthless acts on all those who fall out of favor. When the ambitious Serena realises that she is unable to bear a child she sets out to murder her husband’s illegitimate son.
Chris Kyle (K-19: The Widowmaker) who wrote the screenplay for the riveting tale of passion and greed needs to improvise it further before Jolie and Aronofsky can go ahead with the new venture while Nick Wechsler, who worked on film adaptations of best-sellers The Road, The Time Traveller’s Wife and Reservation Road is rumored to be producing the project.
