  • wika

    Wow I just read what you guys were talking about……possibly the most positive news we’ve had in a while T______T Hope everything goes well.

    Jaye, there’s a method to this madness indeed. :)

  • AWHODAT

    Angelina and Brad are such experts at leaving others in the dust. When folks are still oohhing and awwwing over one of their many fantastic achievements etc. or even when folks are wallowing in what they believe is ‘bad news’ for or about them, those two have already moved lightyears away and on to their next awe-inspiring accomplishments.

    Thats whats called: let them eat your dust.

  • Bumble

    Its positive in the right direction, so please no more talk about custody , we are happy they are having counselling as individuals and family that is promising news.

  • Bumble

    REMEMBER PEOPLE KEEP THIS THREAD MOTHER FUCKING POSITIVE OK, KEEP PRAYING AND KEEP THE HOPE ALIVE

  • Beedyq

    The power of prayer and faith and love overcoming obstacles must not be denied.

    Angelina Jolie In Talks To Star In TriStar’s ‘Shoot Like A Girl’

    EXCLUSIVE: Angelina Jolie is in early talks to star for TriStar in Shoot Like a Girl. The film is an adaptation of Shoot Like A Girl: How One Woman’s Dramatic Fight In Afghanistan and on the Home Front. That is an upcoming memoir by Air Force Major Mary Jennings Hegar, who served three tours in Afghanistan as a rescue helicopter pilot who transported hundreds of soldiers off the battlefield in hot zone areas. During one of those tours, her helicopter was shot down in the midst of a rescue mission. She got shot by the Taliban, but battled through her injury to save the three Americans she had been sent to rescue, along with her own team. They got out of there in a daring and death defying escape. Beyond her battlefield heroics that included winning the Purple Heart and becoming only the sixth woman to receive the Distinguished Flying Cross, Hegar successfully waged and won and important battle on U.S. soil. She sued the Department of Defense over the Combat Exclusion Policy that kept women from direct combat. The policy was ruled unconstitutional as a result, it was repealed. The Penguin Random House imprint Berkley Caliber will publish the book May 7, 2017.

    The Gotham Group is producing the film, and Nicole Brown brought in the book and is overseeing it with TriStar president Hannah Minghella. Frank Baldwin wrote the script and they will try to make Jolie’s deal and then set a filmmaker and fast track this.

    Jolie hasn’t done an action turn in awhile; the last were Salt and The Tourist, before she moved on to the directing vehicles In The Land Of Blood and Honey, Unbroken and By The Sea, as well as Maleficent, which has a sequel percolating. She’s repped by UTA, Media Talent Group and attorney Robert Offer.

    I’m feeling so positive right now. Hoping and praying for this family to get back together

  • toastie postie

    Woo hoo! Hope it is true. Can’t wait!

  • Observer2

    So, we’ve decided here?

  • toastie postie

    Today is a very good Friday!!!

  • toastie postie

    Finally a good one! Though I think TMZ is also a hopeful one.

  • Bumble

    Yes O2

  • DragonQueen

    I wish they would have Angelina in Lara Croft instead of that no-talent Alicia Vikander.

  • changeling

    Media Talent Group is Geyer Kozinski… right?

  • Bumble

    Amen , never lose hope like I said positivity and prayers need to carry on for the JPs to get back together.

  • toastie postie

    Don’t know about Alicia, but it was a younger Lara. But they could have done a CGI one with Angie’s voice. I wish they had thought that way.

  • lyric

    Yes

  • toastie postie

    Yes, Captain!!!!

  • Bumble

    O2 i was just saying to you on the other thread: I think the likes of Dr Finke should have stressed for her to have time off and get counselling. i dont know what the procedures is Lucy might know what type of advice is given after these type of major operations..i mean she was doing story boards for Unbroken while still tubed up ..i think they didnt realise the severity of it,, but its never too late they can work on it and discuss it now. and hopefully learn from it.

  • Beedyq

    Yes. Reps Nicole Kidman and BBT as well.

    Robert Offer is still her business attorney.

  • toastie postie

    Well got things to do. Lift that bale and tote that barge. So I hope I do not have too much ketchingup to do when i get back. Stay hopeful everyone. A good day.

  • Observer2

    I do too. It’s my opinion, that both Brad and Angelina got the help that they needed to make the decision and to be their biggest source of support, before and during her operations.

    They both could have thought that was handling how serious the health situation was, without addressing that there was a BIG possibility for emotional after effects.

    Brad and Angelina can be runners, so to speak. LOL They both ran straight back into work.

  • Bumble

    Come back soon ok

  • AWHODAT

    Tee hee…….we’re almost as ninja-stealth as Brad and Angie. lol There have been so many threads since the bombshell news but we fans have remained tactical and focussed.

    When the usual cockroaches have rushed to each new thread, thinking theyll stink it up and give us a hard time, we organize and do our thing, refusing to give the suckers, including JJ, our energy.

    And look at us now. Jumping over the heads of the suckers and getting everyone onboard and leaving the suckers in our dust.

    Is it any wonder we’re the fans of the most awesome couple in the world??!! LMAO

  • changeling

    I’m super encouraged and excited with this breaking news on a dreary Friday here in NY/Jersey. First, the CPS recommendations and now, this. There is no action movie actress like her. Let it materialize please.

  • lyric

    I agree

  • lucy

    Are we here for now?

  • lucy

    Are we staying here?

  • Bumble

    I think just shows no matter how good help they got they missed key elements of the aftermath of these life changing and life saving operations ..you could see she and he were still emotional about them even after a year or so on Today Interview. they just buried their heads in work , some times people do that they try to replace issues with distractions and sadly the issue still lurks there. I honest to god am glad teh knuckleheads agreed to counselling and i pray, yes i’m like a minion on batteries when i keep repeating my self that this counselling might sort out those problems and i pray they honestly are open about their feelings .

  • Bumble

    Yes lucy we are

  • Bumble

    Yes

  • Wonderbust

    i thought the haters said HW was done with her LMAO

  • Bumble

    PS O2 your stalker is busy replying to you on the last thread LOL

  • lucy

    Okay I just now got here and see there is some kind of custody agreement, is this real or gossip?

  • Bumble

    And how many times they have been proven wrong again LOL

  • Bumble

    Not sure appears to be, maybe others know?

  • Beedyq

    Real deal they both voluntarily agreed to until Oct 20, 3 weeks. DCFS-CPS agreement

    Angelina gets full physical custody of their 6 kids.
    Brad gets visitation, with strings attached. The initial visit is with a therapist present and the therapist then has the power to either allow Brad subsequent unmonitored visits or insist on being present whenever he’s around the kids.
    Brad is subject to random drug/alcohol testing.
    Brad and Angelina will each submit to individual counseling. In addition, Brad, Angelina and the kids will undergo family counseling together

  • bap

    Also drug testing for Bradley.

  • Bumble

    bringing over what GC said its so right

    ETA Brad is smart. He has always been able to read Angie and patiently work with her until their dreams and plans merged into one mutual goal. Do not underestimate Brad Pitt.

  • Jaye

    Howdy again, JP peeps. Here’s my jam for the day:

  • Jaye

    BEEEEEEEEEEEE! lol

  • Bumble

    LOL love it keep the spirits up

  • Bumble

    Jaye
    I am intrested in your take of new events?

  • wika

    I don’t think that’s the only issue here, though. From what has happened it seems like they’re also addressing Brad’s problems/bad habits (ie in this case allegedly getting drunk in front of his kids). Not saying that the rumours are true about what happened on the plane, but something he did has allowed DCFS to get involved, and I’m glad this is getting addressed too, among other things. For now I’m just glad things are going the way I hoped for. Keeping my fingers crossed.
