There's no mystery around Angelina Jolie's next big project.
Jolie and Fox 2000 have teamed up to adapt Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta mystery novels, according to Variety.
Scarpetta is a medical examiner often called upon to solve homicides, and has appeared in 16 of Cornwell's novels. The deal, though, calls for Jolie to play the role in a plot not tied to any of those previously published works.
Jolie, 33, starred in 2008's fact-based mystery "Changeling."Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
