9 Actresses Who Landed Big Movie Roles Originally Written For Men!

no title

They ain't here to play no love interest!

It's no secret that men get the lion's share of meaty roles in Hollywood, but the good old gender swap was a studio solution long before the Ghostbusters reboot came along!

Sigourney Weaver's unforgettable portrayal of Ellen Ripley in Alien is widely considered one of the best film heroes of all time, but the badass heroine was originally written as the standard male action hero before director Ridley Scott decided to switch the gender to enhance the story!

Of course, Ripley isn't the only character to get the gender flip in the development stage.

Believe it or not, Angelina Jolie's super-spy role in Salt was originally supposed to be played by Tom Cruise, and Sandra Bullock's political strategist in Our Brand is Crisis was taken from George Clooney's hands!

Find out what other famous actresses landed starring roles originally written for men (below)!

Michelle Rodriguez Is A Woman For The First Time On The Set Of Her Sex Change Thriller Tomboy, A Revenger's Tale — See The Gruesome Pic!

no title

Michelle Rodriguez's upcoming film is definitely NOT for the squeamish!

At least that's what we got from the first look at the Furious 7 star on set of her new gender reassignment thriller Tomboy, A Revenger's Tale.

This weekend, the 37-year-old was spotted in Vancouver filming a scene where she stumbled out of a motel onto the streets, wearing nothing but a blood soaked robe.

In the harrowing scene, Rodriguez's hitman character steps out for the first time as a female after being double crossed by gangsters and a rogue surgeon played by Sigourney Weaver.

The assassin then begins a cold-blooded revenge mission with the help of a nurse called Johnnie — who has secrets of her own!

Yeah… For now, we're going to have to say hard pass.

The forced gender reassignment plot is giving us a transphobic vibe, and even GLAAD is 'disappointed' with what they've heard.

What do YOU think??

Michelle Rodriguez Is Playing A Hitman Who Gets Gender-Reassignment Surgery In A Controversial New Thriller!

no title

This sounds like quite an interesting premise for a thriller.

Michelle Rodriguez may be known for her action movies like The Fast and The Furious franchise, but her newest flick may just require the best acting of her career.

It was announced on Wednesday that the Lost actress had been cast as the male lead in the upcoming thriller Tomboy.

Wait, wha??

We don't know many of the details yet, but apparently, Michelle will play a hitman who gets forced to undergo gender reassignment surgery from a corrupt doctor (Sigourney Weaver), and has to subsequently navigate life in her new body as a hitwoman — and obviously take bloody revenge on the people who wronged her.

There's some clear potential for controversy with the topic, but Michelle doesn't seem like the kind of person to attach herself to a transphobic piece, so we're hoping the movie works as a step forward for the transgender community.

Does this sound like your kind of movie??

Rick Moranis Reveals He ISN'T Retired & Explains Why He Turned Down A Cameo In The Ghostbusters Reboot!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Don't believe everything you read on Wikipedia!

Well, for those of you who thought Rick Moranis had stopped making movies for good, think again!

The actor took an 18-year hiatus after his wife, Ann, passed away from breast cancer in 1997. He left the industry to focus his time and energy on raising his two kids.

But he insists that he didn't retire way back then — like his Wikipedia page had said — because now that his children have become adults, he's ready to get back in the game, saying:

"I took a break, which turned into a longer break. But I'm interested in anything that I would find interesting. I still get the occasional query about a film or television role and as soon as one comes along that piques my interest, I'll probably do it. [But Ghostbusters] didn't appeal to me."

The 62-year-old, who had starred in the first two Ghostbusters flicks back in the '80s, admitted that he turned down a cameo spot in Paul Feig's female-led reboot. Now, he's explaining why:

"I wish them well I hope it's terrific. But it just makes no sense to me. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago?"

Even though he thoroughly enjoyed acting, and hopes to get back into it eventually, the Canadian entertainer says he wouldn't trade his time off for anything:
