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.
