Tres Jolie

Xinhuanet reports that Angeline Jolie will be acting in a Paramount + Warners joint production of Beowulf, which you ignorant money-grubbing non-English-major fools should know is an

...Old English epic poem, which is thought to have been written in the eighth century, [that] chronicles the exploits of Beowulf, a Scandinavian hero who saves the Danes from the indomitable monster Grendel.

The movie is slated for release in 2007. But what makes it really newsworthy is the fact that Angelina Jolie will be playing momma to the indomitable monster Grendel. This, taken together with her previous role as Olympias, the multiply tattooed mother with the geographically misplaced fake Transylvanian accent in "Alexander the Great", bears witness to Jolie's complete sway over the "classical MILF" end of the casting market.
