ANGELINA Jolie is to return to action with a role in the new action thriller from French filmmaker Luc Besson.

Universal will release the as-yet untitled thriller from while Jolie will fill an unspecified role.

Keeping things vague, plot details have yet to be revealed but various US publications are quoting ‘sources close to the production’ as revealing that it will be similar to the director’s 1994 assassin saga Leon.

It will also have a sci-fi/fantasy element like Inception.

Jolie herself is about to release her debut film as director, the Bosnian War drama In The Land of Blood and Honey, and is also being tipped for to play Cleopatra in a historical epic about the Egyptian ruler.

Besson’s film is likely to come first, however, as shooting is set to begin in Paris this April (2012).
