Angelina Jolie has been linked to a surprising new film role, as reports suggest the Oscar-winning actress could portray Nigella Lawson in a new biopic.
The Tomb Raider star is said to be the favourite to play the TV chef in a new movie about her recent troubles.
According to The Sun, Hollywood producers are keen to make a film focusing on Nigella’s publicised relationship with Charles Saatchi and the fraud trial involving her former personal assistants.
‘Ange had planned to take a lot of time off next year but this role is very tempting,’ a source told the newspaper. ‘She has been gripped like everyone else by all the drama surrounding Nigella these past few months and thinks she is a remarkable woman.’
‘The story has got it all – and she’s as intrigued as anyone else by it,’ the source adds.
The movie is already marked for release next year, and would follow Angelina’s directing stint in Australia if she was to accept the role.
Meanwhile Nigella is gearing up for her return to the spotlight with brand new cooking show, The Taste, which will air on both sides of the Atlantic.
