    [​IMG]Paramount Pictures has acquired life rights to intelligence operative Kathi Lynn Austin, whose adventures in arms trafficking and terrorism will inspire an action thriller vehicle for Angelina Jolie, reports Variety.

    The trade says that Austin, who has most recently worked on contract for the U.N. Security Council, has undertaken field missions in Africa, Europe, Southeast Asia and Central America. The drama will focus on a fictional arms dealer inspired by Victor Bout, the shadowy Russian who is considered one of the world's most prolific dealers in illegal munitions.

    Media Talent Group's Geyer Kosinski will produce.

    The catalyst for the package was Kosinski, who manages Jolie and has looked long and hard for a premise that's rooted in reality and has franchise potential.

    So it's basically gonna be like Domino; taking a real-life person and putting them in a story that never happened? Depending on who they get to write and direct, it COULD work. Domino just went a little too far into left field for my taste.

    I saw Brian Austin Green in Domino and immediately stopped watching.

    This is her one millionth movie right?
    Doesn't she have a family of 100,0000,000 adopted children or something?
