Could Jolie Be Unforgiven?
McQuarrie adapting ITV miniseries

26 August 2010  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Deadline

Despite the fact that both State of Play and Edge of Darkness were largely ignored at the box office, the tide of filmmakers looking at UK miniseries to makeover into movies has not been stemmed. Now Producer Graham King has hired Christopher McQuarrie to write a script based on ITV series Unforgiven for Angelina Jolie.

McQuarrie will be adapting the series, which saw a woman trying to edge her way back into society after 15 years in prison for murdering two police officers. She’s looking for a quiet life with her troubled sister, but runs into problems with the sons of one of the coppers.

As Deadline reports, even with the solid talent at the keyboard, Jolie’s involvement is nowhere near sure yet, since she doesn’t tend to accept any projects without a finished screenplay. But King’s GK Films is apparently trying to develop a working relationship with her, having partnered with the actress on The Tourist. And the fact that the company now has regular collaborations with the likes of Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio should help her make her mind up. That, and the fact that McQuarrie did some of the script work on The Tourist
