Chiwetel Ejiofor is in negotiations to join the cast of Phillip Noyce's attention grabbing spy thriller with Angelina Jolie and Liev Schreiber called "Salt," says Reuters.
The high-profile project centers on a CIA officer named Salt (Jolie) who is pinned as a Russian sleeper spy set out to assassinate the president. She sets out to prove that someone else is the traitor.
Ejiofor will play Peabody, a CIA counterintelligence officer. Schreiber is playing Salt's boss and friend on the CIA's Russian desk.
Ejiofor makes a cool addition--loved him in Serenity as the bad guy...
Filming on Salt kicks off next month in New York.
