Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow sequel/spinoff in the works?

Salt, the new spy-on-the-run thriller starring Angelina Jolie as CIA agent (and suspected Russian mole) Evelyn Salt, has an ending that leaves the door – make that a helicopter hatch -- open to a sequel. But what about bringing Jolie’s Bourne-again action hero together with one of the much-loved side characters from the Iron Man series?


There has to be an audience for a new action spy superhero mash-up franchise teaming Jolie’s resilient espionage ace with Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts character, gal Friday to Robert Downey Jr.’s industrialist Tony Stark, right?The title of this dream duo’s surefire blockbuster? Yup: Salt and Pepper, which you have to admit makes a lot more sense than Knight and Day.

(And yes, opening credits number to be rapped by the hip-hop pair behind “Push It” and “Shake Your Thang.” )
