Author Jackie Collins wants Angelina Jolie and Ryan
Gosling to play mother and son in the movie adaptation of her new book Goddess
of Vengeance. We wonder if Angelina Jolie felt offended when she first heard
the rumours.

The writer is seriously considering turning her latest
scandalous novel into a film – but only the biggest names should consider
signing up.

Jackie tells BlogTalkRadio.com, “I would love Ryan
Gosling to play the character of Lucky Santangelo’s son Bobby. I would love to
have Angelina Jolie play Lucky. She’s just great and she embodies the
character.”

Meanwhile, Desperate Housewives star Brenda Strong is
desperate to play Collins’ leading lady in the writer’s first stageplay. She
adds, “We haven’t cast it yet but we’ve done a couple of readings and we had
one reading in Los Angeles with Brenda Strong from Desperate Housewives, who
read the mother, and she keeps saying to me, ‘When is the play going on? I want
to play that part!’ It’s about a young girl whose mother has taken over her
life and won’t allow her to marry her rock star boyfriend.”

“At the end of the first act he is murdered in the family
swimming pool. It’s Jackie Collins meets Agatha Christie. For the actress who’s
gonna play the mother, it is the role of a lifetime.”
