The ‘Salt’ actress Angelina Jolie has been eyed herself to star in the pioneering female figure in the Middle East in the film, which will be produced by ‘Prometheus’ director Ridley Scott.

Angelina Jolie is all set to play yet another strong female character for her next big screen project. Brad Pitt has attached herself to the lead role in a biopic about an iconic woman activist, Gertrude Bell.  Gertrude Bell is described as the female Lawrence of Arabia. Bell was born in 1868 in England. Bell is the pioneering woman leader in the early 20th century whose work became the modern framework in Jordan and Iraq.

Gertrude Bell worked for the British Intelligence during the World War I era and became the key personality to the English’s dismantling of the Ottoman Empire and subsequent founding of Iraq. Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie is set to release her directorial debut with ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ in U.S. theaters on December 23. The actress has also been attached to star in an untitled Kay Scarpetta project, which is an adaptation of Patricia Cornwell’s best-selling novel.

Reportedly, Gertrude Bell will be produced by Ridley Scott under his Scott Free Production banner. Scott, whose upcoming movie ‘Prometheus’ is scheduled to hit theaters nationwide on June 8, 2012, is also eyed to take on the directional duties. The movies screenplay will be penned by Jeffrey Caine.
