Whatever Angie wants, Angie gets. And it looks like Angelina Jolie wants her some Patricia Cornwell.

According to Risky Business, Fox 2000 has tapped screenwriter Kerry Williamson to pen a starring vehicle for Jolie, based on crime novelist Corwell's heroin Dr. Kay Scarpetta, a forensic examiner and the protagonist of seventeen of the author's books, most recently 'The Scarpetta Factor,' which hit shelves this past October. Whatever Angie wants, Angie gets. And it looks like Angelina Jolie wants her some Patricia Cornwell.

According to Risky Business, Fox 2000 has tapped screenwriter Kerry Williamson to pen a starring vehicle for Jolie, based on crime novelist Corwell's heroin Dr. Kay Scarpetta, a forensic examiner and the protagonist of seventeen of the author's books, most recently 'The Scarpetta Factor,' which hit shelves this past October.

Rather than adapt a specific title, however, Williamson will reportedly draw from a number of Scarpetta's adventures. But Fox 2000, who bought the rights to the Cornwell books in April, hopes this will be the first film in a franchise for its Oscar-winning star.

Joile stars in the upcoming thriller 'Salt', which hits theaters in July. Williamson has scripted upcoming films for directors Alexander Payne ('Sideways') and Darren Aronofsky ('The Wrestler').

No word yet on production dates for the Cornwell adaptation.
