Mrs. Smith may still have more in her besides gun-shooting and Panda friend voices. Following news Earth's mother may be joining an Alfonso Cuarón sci-fi film, THR reports Angelina Jolie could star in a new Darren Aronofsky project:

Angelina Jolie and Darren Aronofsky are in discussions to develop a big-screen adaptation of Ron Rash's 2008 period tome "Serena: A Novel." The project would be a starring vehicle for Jolie, while Aronofsky would direct.

Set in the rugged mountains of 1929 North Carolina, "Serena" follows a man named George Pemberton and his new bride, Serena, as they create a timber empire. Serena not only takes to the woods, but she also pushes her husband to commit more and more ruthless acts. When she learns she cannot bear a child, Serena sets out to murder the son her husband fathered illegitimately.

I'm confused. So when she learns she can't have a kid, she tries to murder her husband's illegitimate son? That completely conflicts the both romantic and hilarious can't-have-a-child solution presented to me in Jennifer Lopez's The Back-Up Plan.
