Angelina Jolie will be joining Fox 2000 and author Patricia Cornwell to bring together a possible multi-picture deal.  The film(s) will feature Jolie as Dr. Kay Scarpetta, a medical examiner.  The character is part of Cornwell's bestselling book series.

Fox 2000 will be acquiring the rights to the series, and given the fact that there are 16 books in the series, there are hopes for a multi-picture franchise.

The film will be produced by Mark Gordon and Geyer Kosinski. 

Angelina Jolie will be starring in the upcoming film, "Salt" as well as the "Kung Fu Panda" sequel and a "Wanted" sequel.
