London: Hollywood star Angelina Jolie is tipped to play the lead in a remake of British television drama "Unforgiven".

The ITV drama, aired last year, is about a woman released from jail after 15 years for murder and is then stalked by one of her victim’s sons. Jolie is said to be "very interested" in the role.

"It`s a raw, dramatic part that will strip away her glamour and really showcase her acting skills," quoted an industry insider as saying.

The original starred former "Coronation Street" actress Suranne Jones.
