Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Teaming Up for New Movie Written by Angie
Pitt, 50, met his current mate on the set of their first movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which arrived in theaters in June 2005. While the action flick was successful, bringing in $186.4 million at the domestic box office, and an additional $291.87 million abroad, it may be best known for bringing the power couple together.
According to Deadline, the parents to six children will team up for a film based on an original script that Jolie, 38, wrote. The publication speculates that Pitt and Jolie will star opposite one another in the leading roles.
Pitt, who recently worked on the Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave, seems to have room on his schedule for his leading lady's film. His only major upcoming project is the WWII drama Fury with Shia LaBeouf, Scott Eastwood, and Logan Lerman, which is scheduled for a November release.
This won't be Jolie's first time penning a script for the big screen. She wrote the 2011 war drama In the Land of Blood and Honey, which opened to mixed reviews from critics and earned $303,877 at the box office from its limited release.
Jolie's upcoming films include the Disney feature Maleficent with Elle Fanning, Juno Temple, and Brenton Thwaites, which will hit theaters later this year, and a vocal part in Kung Fu Panda 3, which is scheduled to arrive in 2015. She also recently led the war drama Unbroken, producing and directing the film, which is set for a Decemeber release.
