Have hopes of a big-screen reunion between real-life couple Brangelina been thwarted? Cameron Diaz, 39, is in final negotiations to play Malkina in Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor,” a project Angelina Jolie was attached to as recently as last month, reports US Weekly. However, the details behind the change in actresses are unknown.

The movie, based on a thriller from Pulitzer Prize-winner Cormac McCarty, features stars including Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz.

There has been some speculation that Jolie didn’t end up with the role because she might have trouble balancing the film with “Maleficent,” scheduled to hit theaters in 2014.

Pitt and Jolie haven’t worked together on a movie since 2005, when they filmed “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” the set where the couple “fell in love.”
