Angelina Jolie Signs on for Gertrude Bell Biopic

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.

    What mean?

  • Katya Vilani

    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:
    Cleopatra
    Churchill and Roosevelt
    Salt 2
    Maleficent
    Untitled Kay Scarpetta Project

    Awesome! Another quality project for Angie. I love watching her movies, she always gives riveting performances. I don’t know much about Gertrude Bell but I’ll be sure to look into it soon.

  • big mama

    Yes, more movies for Angie, the best actress and icon.

  • Lara

    This sounds great, can’t wait to see Angie on the big screen again.

    These words “moron, stupid, pathetic loser, bitter b itch, A ho aren’t enough to describe you. You don’t like her but the 1st one to post on her thread. Aren’t you fcuking pathetic for wasting your time on someon you don’t like.

  • Passing Through

    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

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

  • No shit

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

    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…

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

    @anacacho, unbeknownst to u, ur comment actually says more about u than angelina jolie. what angelina did or didn’t do is well documented and everyone knows it. u can go on and on with ur lies and it won’t change the facts one bit. u’re just making urself look bad. u’ve probably bedded more people than angelina and brad combined. and unlike them, every single one of ur past, present and future “lovers” are losers. how does everyone know this, u wonder? go look in the mirror. ur comment exposes u for who u are. it didn’t say anything about angelina at all.
    all this is probably beyond ur intellect since u probably don’t even know what “self-aware” means. and no, it doesn’t mean u know where ur genitals are.

  • gracie

    Great news about a great lady. This is awesome news. It means we will be seeing Angie in the movies soon. You go Angie!

    Trolls have lost it. Anuston freaks are wasting their time thumbing fans down, only to see their posts thumbed up again — Haha. Poor losers heads are just about to explode. They’re choking on envy. While Queen Jolie is being offered great movies their idol is stuck between bad rom-coms and scr@wing freeloader mcstumpy.

    Wonderful news can’t wait for this….best things happen to good people,Angie.

  • Rose

    @Passing Through: #14, PT yes, they keep bringing up, she was his wife. They forget she is now the X wife. We just have to keep reminding the hens that Angie is the mother of his children, and we know he love these children and Angie more than life itself..
    Angie will be out soon promoting LOBH, therefore, we can expect to see SS and big head going food shopping, pots and pans shopping. They will do anything to be seen the next few months, remember, me, me, me. No wonder CC drop her friendship like a hot brick.

    Unlike Angelina who is attached to list of movies’ project with the best directors and a strong lead character….. Maniston aka sad spook has NADA, and her last movie character play in theater is monkey w*hore licking banana!!!

    Go Angelina ! Keep on rising to higher sphere.

    So good, when others are just happy appearing in a Sandler flick or wiping their eyes because the new James Bond cast didn’t cast them to play the oldest james bond girl ever…

  • The Real Deal

    @anacacho:

    Somebody had a extra bowl of bitter for lunch. Whats the matter honey, still hurting because some man dumped you for a smarter, younger, prettier, all alround better woman than you, how many decades ago? Look in the mirror and face the facts, Angelina Jolie, is not responsible for all the wrong in your life. You are… you can make up all the bull shite you want, and cant prove. You are a used up cow that some man kicked to the curb when he found something better and moved on and never looked back.

    Instead of wallowing in self pity and anger and apparently reading alot of tabloids. Why dont you go call Jenny Craig, forgive yourself for being a bad l ay, and move on. You’ll be happier, your stretch pants will be happier amd your twenty cats won’t have to pretend that they’re your date on Friday nights.

    Inquiring minds want to know how many times the washed-up Jolie did it with Ridley Scott and his pals for this?

    Angelina, she’s such a powerhouse in EVERYTHING she does that l wouldn’t expect anything but perfection.

  • gracie

    Skip if you don’t want to read. Off topic.
    Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher Split. I think it is the best thing in their situation. The marriage couldn’t survive after what happened and the intense publicity.

  • That fake accent of hers…

    More fake English accent. Oh God spare us!!

  • leni

    Great for Angelina! I agree with the poster who called her a powerhouse; she has her pick of films and I love that she portrays roles of strong women, unlike sad spook who keeps SAYING she wants to empower other women but all her recent roles have been DEGRADING to women. Heck, she can’t even empower herself much less anyone else.
