Evelyn Salt is a CIA agent with an adoring husband (August Diehl, who had a memorable turn in Inglourious Basterds) and MacGyver-like tendencies. On the night of her wedding anniversary, Evelyn Salt swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy.
After she's released from prison and sent back to Washington, Evelyn is called in when a Russian defector shows up at CIA headquarters and reveals that there's a group of Russian moles in the U.S.
It is learnt that Tom Cruise was the initial choice for the role, but due to his earlier commitments he was unable to take the project. Latter Angelina Jolie was finalized and the script of ‘Salt’ was rewritten for her.
"SALT" stars Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Andre Braugher. It was directed by Phillip Noyce, a veteran of spy thrillers. He directed "Patriot Games," "Clear and Present Danger," and "The Saint."
