Brad Pitt turned down Salt cameo, says Angelina Jolie
Directed by Phillip Noyce, Salt also stars Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
It tells the story of a CIA officer, called Evelyn Salt (Jolie), who swore an oath to duty, honour and country. Her loyalty is tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy.
Speaking to USA Today, Jolie said she had hoped Pitt would take part in a stunt sequence.
"He was almost going to be the motorcycle guy that I knocked down, and then he'd call me a bad name," Jolie commented.
"But he was with the kids that day, and we couldn't work it out."
The couple previously worked together on Mr and Mrs Smith, and Jolie has said that she would like to work with her partner on another film in the future.
