    I’ll see Brad and Angie in any movie project.

    I’ll wait to see if this is actually true. Brad’s name get attached to so many projects. Just because he may be producing doesn’t mean he will do the film. Besides there is not script at this time.

    Will wait and see. But once again he has some interesting prospects.

    Why do you have doubts since reputable media has reported that he will both star in and produce this film? The financing production company officially announced this today.

    This film has the potential to be an outstanding film. Bravo for Plan B tackling tough subjects.

    Poor Angie Says:

    Poor Angie, Brad really doesn’t want her working anymore. She is just so nice and when he asks her if he should take the role she says yes. This guy didn’t even stop working when she filmed Maleficent. He took on the Counselor and 12 years . He also split the family up by doing Fury when she had Unbroken first. When was the last time we heard of Angie signing on to a project, 2012.

    Poor Angie Says:

    Tabloid. Angelina never gave them an interview. All repeated stuff. As a fan shouldn’t you have recognized that.

    Ian Says:

    I have doubts he will star in it. I am probably wrong, sorry. I just dont think he fits the character. Probably I am wrong. The story is great and as I said it in the older thread I was hoping that Angie couod direct this. Is someting I really could see her doing, the political and Diplomatic story about power.

    Poor Angie Says:

    Angelina better watch her back. Fincher and Brad have projects for the Oscars in Gone Girl and Fury. I could see them sabotaging Angelina’s Oscar chances. She is so nice that she wouldn’t even realize it.

    @Poor Angie:
    Save your fake concern troll, the project has no script yet, it may take years to develop.

    The last two serious movies Angelina did she got good reviews. Imagine if Brad would let her work again, Oscar number 3.

    Just saw the trailer from Gone Girl. Boring. Doubt it will have any awards consideration.
