Angelina Jolie Signs on for Gertrude Bell Biopic

Angelina Jolie is set to star in Gertrude Bell, a biopic about the English writer, archeologist, and pioneering figure in the Middle East, THR reports.

Ridley Scott, whose worked on such flicks as Gladiator and Black Hawk Down, will develop the project with his Scott Free Productions and may also possibly direct the movie.

Gertrude “has been described as the female Lawrence of Arabia for the impact the English woman had in the Middle East and her work in establishing what would become the modern framework for Jordan and Iraq. With a passion for archeology and languages, she wrote about her adventures in the Ottoman Empire and desert kingdoms, traveling in not only a predominantly male world but one whose culture and religion was very alien to the British Empire,” according to the mag.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Angelina Jolie in Gertrude Bell?

People have a short memory, but I don’t. She’s a drug addict, promiscuous, cheater, and home-wrecker. She even slept with her mom’s boyfriend. The world “trash” isn’t enough to describe her.

I hope Angelina Jolie does more movies from now on. She does too few movies now and she doesn’t choose good projects very often.
She is currently attached to the following projects as well that are in various stages of development:
Churchill and Roosevelt
Salt 2
Untitled Kay Scarpetta Project

Great news about the Gertrude Bell biopic…but we sort of figured that out a few months ago when she was seen coming out of Ridley Scott’s London office. Janice Mean is slipping…

Media Wh@re MANiston @ 11/17/2011 at 4:31 pm

That’s great news. I recall she had a meeting with Ripley Scott a while back but don’t remember the exact date.

Congrats to Angie. She is rocking. suck it haters.

If our memories were as short as you think they are, then we wouldn’t know that you’re the same meth addict that’s been trolling these threads for the last 7 years. Somebody’s BUSTED…

I love it when the hens play the marriage card. He married Ticky and look what it got her – dumped, dumped again, then again, once again, one more for Auld Laung Syne, and yet again just for kicks until she finally winds up employing a skinny jean wearing, balding midget that she stole from another woman and buys her cool gifts like chunky pimp bling name rings cuz she’s gone 43 years without being able to remember her name . Yay for marriage! The real test for Ticky is – it’s been almost 6 months since she stole Stumpy…does he still get up to lead her back to bed when she sleepwalks? Or is he at the wakes-up-sees-she’s-missing-again-then-shrugs-rolls-over-and-goes-back-to-sleep stage? I’m sure you know which one I’m voting for…

Your tired of her. Then why did you bother to post a comment on an article about her. GOD YOUR A HYPOCRITICAL MORON!!

Angelina is too pretty to play Gertie Bell but she will probably do a good job.

You can insult me all you want, but that doesn’t change the fact that all I said about her is true.

shes perfect for the role! She’s done all the humanitarian work for years, so she is a hero to many herself. Go Angie!

Thanks Jared.Great news.Love You Angelina Jolie.
