Angelina Jolie: 'Silver Linings Playbook' Role?

Angelina Jolie: 'Silver Linings Playbook' Role?

Angelina Jolie‘s schedule might be getting a bit busier!

Later this week, the 36-year-old megawatt actress is scheduled to meet with director David O. Russell for his latest project, The Silver Linings Playbook, JustJared.com has learned exclusively.

Mark Wahlberg is set to star in the comedy, which will be an adaptation of Matthew Quick‘s novel of the same name.

Synopsis: “Pat Peoples (Wahlberg) is down on his luck. The former high school history teacher has just been released from a mental institution and placed in the care of his mother. Not one to be discouraged, Pat believes he has only been on the inside for a few months – rather than four years – and plans on reconciling with his estranged wife.”

Angelina may also be reprising her role as Evelyn Salt in the sequel to the action thriller Salt.

    This will be a great news. I would love to see Angie in a comedy with Mark W. I know that comedy are not their specialty but they are both talented actors, they can do a great job if they are willing to. Good luck to both of them if they will both do it.

    More BS From MEGATWAT Jolie @ 06/08/2011 at 12:47 pm\
    This is only another of Jolie’s pitiful attempts to get some buzz going to help her collapsing crapola career
    ——————————————
    oh, God, a brain dead gerbil on live support has more intelligence than you do. Angie is getting ready to film Cleopatra with David Fincher. you do know who he is don’t you? if you don’t, fool, Fincher only directed the Social Network; one of the best reviewed films last year. Angie is also going to be doing Salt two and now she may also do this project.. oh yeah, Angelina is still in the running for the role of Maleficent even though Tim Burton has left the project. now, troll, what is that nonsense about her “collapsing crapola career.”

  • AWHODAT

    I just saw this on Mega4, so i must credit beverly hills whose post i got it from.
    .
    But i just couldnt resist bringing it over here to reinforce something that most JP fans already know, so really, this is just for the education of the hags who luuuuuuuurve us so much that they cant stay away from JP threads.
    .
    Check the look on the face of the man in the background who is staring googly eyed at Brad LOL. Do you know who that is? Yes! the very same big bad dirty dog steven huvane – jenny’s pitbull publicist.
    .
    http://images.mirror.co.uk/upl/dailyrecord3/jun2011/7/3/brad-pitt-image-2-818428562.jpg
    .
    You notice he is not even aware of the presence of his client also in the background, right? He only has eyes for Brad, his secret passion.
    .
    And therein, fans, lie the clue to the 6-year long media campaign against Angie, for taking Brad away – not from anustain, but taking Brad away from huvsie’s sight!!! Huvsie hates Angie with the passion of a million scorned f.a.g.g.o.t.s (no offence to any gay men here but you biitches could give lessons on how to be a relentless backstabbing biitch when you are thwarted).
    .
    Jenny is just huvsie’s willing tool because she also has her reasons for wanting to take Angie down because Brad loves Angie and wants her and chased her around the world after he kicked anustain to the curb.
    .
    When Brad kicked anustain to the curb, she not only lost her ‘golden couple’ status, and her marriage to ‘the sexiest man alive’ when everyone knows she is naturally fug, but her very A-list status was only because of Brad. And then she lost it all. So yeah, jenny feels justified in carrying out huvsie’s instructions for her passive-aggressive revenge campaign against Angie.
    .
    But huvsie only used his willing tool, anustain, because he too wanted to hurt Angie for taking Brad out of anustain’s life, where huvsie was hoping he’d be able to see and speak with and ‘accidentally-on-purpose’ brush up against Brad, which is as much as he could hope for. And for six years now, huvsie has been without that hope.
    .
    But he is stuck with trying to pass off the aging, ugly heffa anustain as a hot, sexy and desirable, in-demand young thing. But people are laughing at huvsie’s efforts now because they can see for themselves that theres no photoshop in real life and candid photos. And we are not all gullible idjits like the obese, ugly dumped biitches who are jenny’s fanbase.
    .
    Repeat after me folks: Karma. Is. A. Biitch.

    @theresa: Angelina Jolie the highest paid actress( $20 Million a film) and the most sought after actress in Hollywood. She got $20 Million upfront for Salt just imagine what she will earn for Salt 2. Great year for JP’s Brad is being mentioned for GG’s for Moneyball and TOL(as well as Oscar Buzz). Angie’s directorial debut is been released in Dec for award consideration. Poor trolls are in agony. LOL

    Since when the hell has The Silver Linings Playbook been a comedy?? Seriously. the book is not funny.its dark, yes, but its not a comedy. its a drama, it deals with serious mental issues and violence, both domestic and in general, adultery, abuse. how is that funny? I thought Anne Hathaway was supposed to ahve been approaced? AJ does not fit with eeither of the two women in the book (one of whom is in it for all of a page and a half)
    I cry bull**, ouldnt be the first time soeones dropped her name to get some cred and press. can’t even get the genre of teh film right, and if its being made into a comedy, then its not the book. so sick of HW raping literature and then just changing it anyway to suit them

    @bizzy bee:

    Don’t sleep on Mark W. He may not be a big name as Angelina is but he has industry connections and credits that are impressive. You want his life story? The whole HBO series Entourage is his biography. He’s the creator of that show. Boogie nights was great. Wasn’t he nominated for The Departed instead of Leo Dicaprio? He also knows Brad and Angelina so this may not be so far fetched. I can’t see him doing comedy though unless it’s like a Entourage type comedy full of cussing and frat boy jokes and bathroom humor.

    Kim, Idon’t know if you are the same poster Kim123 who post at CB, but if you are, you have my undying gratitude, because I honestly don’t know how you are able to defend Angie calmly amidst all the hate and ridiculousness. I was especially amazed at Canuck special kind of crazy today, but at the same time amused, because you know the hens are twisting in the wind trying to defend Ticky. In Canuck’s demented mind, Brad is gay, and Ticky kicked him to the curb, and that’s the reason for the divorce. So all these years of fictional “triangle” BS was all for nought. These idiots are hilarious.

    With your statement in quotes LOL, referring to yourself and then having the audacity to compare yourself with another who is superior to your meager talents is lame and boring. Family responsibilities and work are not mutually exclusive except to those who are incompetent at multi-tasking and don’t know how to balance the demands of an exceptional life and nurture those you love at the same time. It is done all the time.

    OR maybe you used quotes to infer you wish you were in her position of power, influence, wealth, fame, physical appeal and the receiving end of the presence and love of BP and their children LOL … you have quite an imagination and wannabe aspirations for your lowly self. Alas, hope and dreams are what keep you going otherwise you’d be daily scraping your pitiful ego off the floor and have no time to snark at a lovely humanitarian whom you refuse to accept as a positive human being… because that acknowledgement in your inner most self would make you look even worse and you’d be forced to do something about it, which you can’t because you don’t have the skill…you lose on all fronts…the end.

    I responded to you at the end of the last thread about Salt.
    .
    PT, I don’t think she’ll make a scene. There are plenty of quiet and anoynmous ways to sabotage people and leak info and you KNOW she will have all kinds of info from people who may think he’s a cad. Six years with him and she is probably as close to most of his friends as he is.
    .
    Even with all my arguments as to why I think he’s at a stage where he will sell his soul to hitch his ride with Aniston, it could still backfire on him. Aniston has pretty much become a laughing stock as far as relationships go. People in the industry know what a stand up guy Brad has always been and they know what really happened and how Aniston tried to spin it. That got her no respect at all.
    .
    I see him as taking full advantage of her notoriety to get himself a higher profile and to access her bank for a nicer life style for himself and to fund some of his projects. Surely she can bankroll some $5 million or even $10 million indie films. She is desperate and if he feeds her the right lines about helping her by writing her good roles then she will be on board.
    .
    As for Heidi – she is better off without this guy and she can still quietly get a little back by ensuring a million little leaks that can only serve to embarrass the new merger.
    .
    AS FOR DAVID RUSSELL: isn’t he certifiable? Doesn’t he get into fights with his actors? Doesn’t he go off the handle and humiliate his actors and crew? Isn’t he that guy? Angie would eat him for breakfast if she thought any project with him was worth the hassle of working with him. This film hardly seems worth getting out of bed for.

  • Angie’s Love Story Oscar Talk

    Credit Atimo Mega4a site

    atimo wrote:

    Can Angelina Jolie`s Bosnian love story get an Oscar?
    So far, known as the sexy actress and star of action movies, Angelina Jolie, could become the new sex symbol of the directors, says film critic Gary Susman and asks whether it is possible for Jolie to get an Oscar for best director in February next year.

    Angelina Jolie (Photo: AP)
    Not only wrote and directed her first film, a Bosnian war love story, drama called “In the Land of Blood and Honey”, but took over the job of the negotiations on the distribution of the film, which will have its premiere 23rd December. With that, she has shown the ambition to become a serious candidate for the prestigious American Film Academy.

    Although it may seem difficult to switch from the role of sex symbol in front of cameras in the role of renowned director behind the camera, Jolie is on the right track. Critics are fond of her, and it would not be the first time that the voters of the Academy reward acting idols in the role of a director.

    A list of such filmmakers ranging from Robert Redford to Kevin Costner. They both won Oscars for their directorial debut, Redford for the family drama “Ordinary People” in 1981 and Costner for the epic Western “Dancing With The Wolves” 1991. It is interesting that both captured the famous prize from Martin Scorsese, who made a big hit, “Raging Bull” in 1981. and in 1991. he was in competition with “Good fellas”.

    Warren Beatty and Mel Gibson won an Oscar statuettes for their second efforts behind the camera, the first for the story of the Russian Revolution in 1981. and Gibson for the war drama “Brave heart” in 1995.

    George Clooney was nominated for this award as director in 2005, when he directed the historical drama “Good Night. And good luck,” which was his second film as director.

    The Academy also like it when movie stars go into the the world of screenwriting. Beatty was nominated for an Oscar for his debut in screenwriting, the movie “Shampoo” in 1975, and later again for the “Reds”. Emma Thompson won a gold statue for “Sense and sensibility”, a film in which she starred. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck also noted the success for “Good Will Hunting,” in which they both had great roles in 1997. Affleck also got great reviews, but no nominations for the Boston crime drama “Gone Baby Gone” and “The Town”.

    And Angelina Jolie’s film has some common features with the listed. Sounds epic, in its center is a controversial historical event, she is working with Bob Berney in the area of ​​distribution who made successful campaigns for films like “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “The Young Victoria” and “La Vie en Rose.”

    Having already won the Oscar in 1999 for “Girl, Interrupted” and has long been engaged in humanitarian work will help her, says Susman. If all this being said, she won`t be recognized as a beginner who has no reason to tell the story or stand behind the camera. In addition, the entire film industry is always happy when there is any reason to see Jolie on the red carpet, says film critic of Entertainment Weekly.

  • Always Using JPs

    yeah, I agree- this sound SUSPICIOUSLY like one of the MANY times that Brad or Angie’s name gets dropped/floated to get a project attention. Right up until Oscar time, Marky was still dropping Brad (& Matt D’s) name w/ hinky talk like- boy, are we lucky Brad & Matt dropped out bc CB is sooo cool/great- I thought it was really rude- he did it more than once. I liked some of the shows marky produces (like In Treatment), but he is pretty annoying; I guess he served his time for beating/blinding the Asian shopkeeper, but I still think it is disturbing.. IF this movie gets made w/out Angie, I fully expect the usual barrage of made-up web stories that lie & say the Angie gotten “beaten out” for the role- ugh.

After all, her fans respond to tabloids as the truth…so what was propagated against the JP’s will serve the same purpose against JA…all’s fair…game on…gc, any more popcorn?

    You guys are crazy if you think Aniston is gonna get any bad press for poaching another woman’s man. That won’t sell. Her haters are not as loud and vicious as Angelina haters so don’t count on it. The best thing to do is Ignore her but you will never do that. She’s really trying to get a load of attention for her new romance even going as far as wearing a ring on THE finger. LoL the media is not biting as much as they have in the past.
