Angelina Joile Paolo Sorrentino

Well, he made Sean Penn go goth in "This Must Be Place," so who knows how Paolo Sorrentino will tranform Angelina Jolie in his next film, but either way, the director is already angling a role for the actress in his upcoming effort.

Set to be shot in Rome, plot details are scarce on the film entitled "La grande bellezza" ("The Great Beauty"), but it will feature the director's "Il Divo" and "The Consequences Of Love" star Toni Servillo as a "La Dolce Vita" style reporter, with Jolie said to feature in a cameo appearance. And that's about it. The film is expected to be completed for a 2013 release, and it's pretty much guaranteed that if it's done in time, it will land at the Cannes Film Festival where Sorrentino's past five films have premiered in competition.

Jolie is currently vamping it up as "Maleficent" in Disney's great fairy tale hope for 2014, after which we presume she'll stop by the 'Beauty' set before moving onto the thriller she's shooting with Luc Besson in early 2013. So a tentpole, arthouse appearance and genre flick....yep, Jolie is sticking with the gameplan. [THR]
