Angelina Jolie Lines Up Next Directing Project: Elephant Poaching Film 'Africa'

Angelina Jolie Lines Up Next Directing Project: Elephant Poaching Film 'Africa'

Angelina Jolie has just signed on to direct the new film Africa, a drama centering around paleo-archeologist Richard Leakey, THR reports.

The 39-year-old actress will take on the film about the “fossil hunter who helped find bones of early man but later turned his attention to combating elephant and rhino poaching.”

“I’ve felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life, and responded immediately to Eric’s beautiful script about a man drawn into a violent conflict that leads him to discover his own profound connection to that same place and people,” Angelina said in a statement.

ARE YOU EXCITED for Angelina Jolie’s next project???

    SAVE IT JENNIFER! YOU KNOW YOU LOVE DAME ANGELINA!

  • teri

    Sounds like another interesting film.

  • Joam

    Ty JJ ;)

  • ummm

    Awesome news! Wow, Angelina is really budding into sought after director! I believe she has found her true calling.

  • Maya

    Love this amazing woman and the haters are going cry – didn’t they sat that people hated Angelina and that no one wants to work with her?

    Well here she is directing another big budget movie with Roger Deakins and Tim Roth which is produced by a big company.

  • MySoulToTake

    It’s amazing how you all believe anything celebrities do. I’m in the industry and you know what actors and actresses do? They all laugh at you and all your insanity for them, idolizing them as if they were above no one. You would be surprised how many celebrities read and comment on these threads whether they get caught or not they laugh at how lowly you all act towards one another. They’re not people, they have no feelings the only thing they care about is money trust me. You have to be in the industry to understand that everything is planned out. I have met Angelina and Brad at a gathering once and they are nothing like they claim themselves to be. That is as far as i will go.

  • bap

    This news is wonderful! Dame Angelina calling is to tell stories regarding people in history.

  • awww

    @MySoulToTake:

    One of the tireless trolls pretending to be an insider. I’ll believe what I see them do and that is help others and bring awareness to causes that would otherwise be ignored. Plus the constant quotes from real insiders and outsiders who have actually met both Brad and Angelina and have had nothing but great things to say about them both. Are they perfect no and no one is. I have never heard them claimed to be something special other than just two people who have been successful in HW and they choose to use their fame and wealth as a platform to help do some good in this world.

  • thelookoflove1365

    Looks to me like Angie is really into making films with social relevance, or more of docu-drama style film-making. I hope she is successful. We need more people/director like Angie who is not afraid to tackle issues or direct a film that may or may not make a lot of money. Good for her. I just love ITLOBAH, well directed for a first timer. She really does not put a half-asss product, always meticulous, determine to give quality outcome.

    @MySoulToTake:

    And I had dinner with them. They are both lovely people and so are their kids.

  • Observer2

    You go, girl!

    Look at her. She’s not messing around. A movie written by Academy Award Winner, Eric Roth, who is Pax’s Godfather. Deakins! He must like working with her. He doesn’t work with directors that don’t know their business. Megan Ellis and Skydance Productions.

    Woohoo! She’s found her bliss again with movies

  • Rose from Temecula

    Great! Always love to see Dame Angie, an accomplished actor/director as well as a very kind, loving and charitable mom/woman.

    As the good book says in Corinthians 13:4 -
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

    God bless the Jolie-Pitts family and loyal fans.

    Let’s face it. Brad and Angie are respected by many elite directors, writers, and producers Clint, David Fincher, Alfonso Cuarón, Eric Roth, Cohen Brothers just to name a few.

    What does MANiston get? A desert still has no distributor. She is a joke. No one in Hollywood will take her seriously in an drama role. She should’ve mix it up when she had the chance instead of flaunting her body and her hair.

  • bap

    Dame Angelina is very young still she will make her mark as a Writer and Director in film. Dame will deal with serious issues as a Director in this global world.

    I know, Brad and Angelina are just doing their thing. And their thing is with the big boys and women in the business.

    Meanwhile in Hostess land. Ticky invited everybody and no one wants a piece of her cake. Ticky’s very best isn’t comparable to Streep, Moore’s or Adam’s worse.

    I wonder if this means, Paramount will be the studio behind this as Skydance is located at Paramount.

    Day 12 and still no distributor for Crack, huh? I’m going to make a suggestion here – how about if we all pitch in (you too, hens!), say 25 cents a piece, and offer to buy Crack and distribute it? I’ve got access to a commercial DVD burner so I can press a few dozen copies of that sucker for the cost of the DVDs. What’s a 50 pack go for these days? About $35? I think we can probably purchase and “distribute” crack for around $100 – tops. Because I appreciate the years and years and years of CFG that Ticky has given me…I’m willing to help a biitch out just this once. I’ll set up a special Paypal account for contributions. Anyone who’s interested in contributing to the HELP DISTRIBUTE (LEGAL) CRACK FUND can email me at UglyForOscarGlory@Gmail.com.

    No, I didn’t watch the full Booty video. Just the first 2 minutes. I had trouble remembering JLo is a trained dancer. That’s how amateurish the “choreography” is. I’m sick of all of these middle-aged women carrying on like their 22 or 23. Get some fvcking dignity. There’s no shame in getting older and you can’t turn back the clock no matter how tight you keep your ass. You’re perimenopausal if not in full-blown menopause (waving at Madge). They knew they were in a profession that values youth over age when they started, so they should have prepared themselves accordingly. The fact that the majority of these tricks are known more for their body and looks than their talent is why they’re having to work overtime to stay relevant and try to appeal to a demo young enough to be their children. Sometimes I think it’s funny but mainly I just feel sorry for them for never accepting the fact that if they’re lucky they’re only going to get older. They’re never going to be younger. The alternative is being dead, so all things considered – getting old really ain’t all that bad…except for the hot flashes, leg swelling, sleeplessness, irritability, anxiety, night sweats and the sometimes overwhelming desire to shove an ice pick through the eyeballs of irritiating people and then back over them with a cement truck. Otherwise…getting old really isn’t all that bad…

    That’s quite the change for Grassy Knoll Lamey since she was screaming Oscar-nom the day Crack premiered. That’s the problem with hens – they hold out hope until it becomes crystal clear that Ticky’s strictly C-list.
    .
    On another note – those Living Rough behind the scenes pix? When is Living Rough going to disclose to their customers that Ticky’s hair has a lot of help from $10,000 worth of Italy’s finest weave hair? We all saw Ticky’s real hair at TIFF. It’s neither long nor thick. Fraud, fraud, fraud and more fraud.

    Jennifer, why are you so bitter? It’s been almost 10 years, when Brad kicked you to the curb. Move on, beyotch.

  • Saffron

    Mrs. Pitt does pick the most fascinating projects. I can’t believe she just started her second career as a director/producer a few short years ago and her fourth film has just been announced.
    .
    Jolie Pas is going to give other production companies a run for their money. Brad must be so proud of his other-worldly wife.

  • AWHODAT!

    Schweeeeeeeeeeeeeet! Seriously tho, Angie makes it all look so easy. No wonder she is envied and hated by the insecure, the low self-esteem, the lazy, the angry, the hateful, the ugly, the soul-less, in short – the dregs of the earth who we only know about because…the internet.
    .
    And one of them was the first to get here. LOL And its still here, having tried the “i am an insider” and failed (post #8 LMFAO); and when that failed, the idiot went back to its default ‘filthy’ posts…………..as if a skunk can hide its stink. Pshaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwww.
