Brad Pitt in talks to star in Angelina Jolie’s new movie

Brad & Angelina

 

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie could be teaming up again on Angie’s next film project Africa.

According to The Wrap, Brad is in talks to star as archaeologist Richard Leakey – who campaigned to protect elephants against poachers in the ’80s – in the biopic penned by Oscar-winning scriptwriter Eric Roth. Angelina is set to direct the movie.
The couple met playing spy team Mr & Mrs Smith in 2005 and are set to reunite on screen as husband and wife in Angelina’s latest movie By The Sea, due out later this year.

Angie will re-team with her Unbroken cinematographer Roger Deakins on the project, with shooting due to start in the summer.
She said in a statement when she boarded the project last September: “I’ve felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life, and was taken with Eric’s beautiful script about a man drawn into the violent conflict with elephant poachers who emerged with a deeper understanding of man’s footprint and a profound sense of responsibility for the world around him.”
Brad and Angelina have six children together. Their 10 year-old daughter Zahara was adopted from Ethiopia and their first biological child Shiloh, 8, was born in Namibia.
