[ May 11th 2001 ]
music video to Irish rock group U2's Elevation
single featuring Angelina Jolie is rumoured to
have been postponed because the Tomb Raider star
has been unable to fit the shooting into her busy
schedule, IGN Filmforce reports today.
by Joseph Kahn, recruited to single-handedly helm
the mini production, Angelina Jolie, donning hot
pants and pistols, was booked to star as Core
Designs cyber babe Lara Croft sent to rescue U2
band member The Edge from an evil version of himself.
Filming had been planned to commence some weeks
ago in Seattle. New footage will now be considered,
including the insertion of computer-generated
imagery to replace the Oscar winning Jolie. MTV,
who has chronicled the making of Elevations music
video, ironically also the first track to feature
on Elektra's upcoming Tomb Raider movie sound
track, will air a special documentary over the
next few weeks.
