AceShowbiz - Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron are reportedly feuding over the lead role in upcoming "Bride of Frankenstein" reboot. Rumor has it, the "Maleficent" actress is being courted for the lead role while the "Mad Max: Fury Road" actress is tapped as the runner-up.
According to a source, Angie is stringing Charlize along by refusing to commit to the project, which will be directed by "Beauty and the Beast (2017)" helmer Bill Condon, and denying the latter's opportunity to accept other roles as she awaits a decision.
"Angie hasn't made a deal with Universal to do their next monster flick, but the offer's still on the table. She could use the $20m paycheck. She seems to enjoy sticking it to Charlize, who wanted to do this film and is convinced Angie stepped in to take it off her," reveals the source.
The source tells Radar Online, "The hate fest between these two started a long time ago and just won't stop. It's as though directors are getting a buzz out of playing them against each other, by dangling a script to both of them then leaving them to bitch and slug it out."
"Bride of Frankenstein" remake is scheduled to be released in the U.S. on February 14, 2019.
