Angelina Jolie Eyeing New Acting & Directing Projects (Report)

Angelina Jolie is keeping very busy!

The actress, director, and activist has reportedly lined up two huge Universal pictures to star in: an adaptation of Simon Sebag Montefiore’s “Catherine the Great and Potemkin: The Imperial Love Affair” and the upcoming World War II spy drama The Spy Who Loved, THR reports.

In addition, Angelina is also reportedly planning to direct an adaptation of Alessandro Baricco’s 2004 novel “Without Blood.”

All of these projects are in addition to Disney’s Maleficent 2, where she will reprise her 2014 role as Maleficent.

Stay tuned for more information on Angelina‘s upcoming projects as they are made official!

    She wants to direct another movie? I hope it’ll be as successful as By the Sea.

    The Spy Who Loved?

    The jealous side of her probably thought: “What Marion can do, I can do better.”

    damage control from the aticle that came out this week saying how hollywood only tolerated her for brad.

  • Whiteley

    Maleficent was good, a sequel is unnecessary. It’s really time for Hollywood to come up with new ideas.

  • No Comment

    Well Maleficent 2 will be successful because it’s a Disney movie, doesn’t matter whether it’s a great one or not. The other movies don’t sound like they will/would make a lot of money. We’ll see.

  • cee

    Hollywood knew who Angelina was long before Brad. She is well respected. She’s won the Jean Hershol award because of her work not Brad. The I read these stories, the more I lose respect for Brad.

  • cee

    So true. She is better than Marion. Also she is taking no money from Brad so she needs to work. Go Angelina. I will be at everything she does.

  • surreal

    will be interesting to see if people still care about her. I doubt Jolie can still attract a large audience.

    As a narcissist and sociopath, yes but not as an actress

  • African Girl

    Good for her!!! 👍🏽

    Lmao! I see the bugs are out in full force!!

    SMH!!

  • bap

    People are going to be praying this is not true. I am hoping these projects will happen.

  • Marie

    help me understand why people comment on feeds about people they don’t like??! if you’re not a fan why waste your time reading an article AND commenting on someone who brings out negativity in you….wouldn’t your time be better spent scrolling past those you don’t like and on to someone you do?! isn’t there enough hate in the world?!

  • Marie

    BTW… i wish the best for both of them!! and I really hope they find their way back together!! I think life’s pressures got too much for a while…..here’s hoping!

  • Lesley Starkey

    I totally agree. The height of this insanity/lunacy is female first.

  • Passing Through

    Are we here or on the old thread? And I haven’t read the THR article…cuz it’s clearly Janice Mean’s parting shot as she exits. Her one last slap at the person she’s most obsessed with in the world and always has been. Sick bitch.

  • toastie postie

    Hmm. Wonder how true this is? Some how I don’t believe it. Especially that Spy movie? Doesn’t seem legit. Whatever. Look forward to any of these if true. Miss seeing her in front of the camera but if she loves directing more so be it. Can’t wait to see FTKMF.

    The book “Catherine the Great and Potemkin: The Imperial Love Affair” sounds very interesting.

    I don’t think people are interested in another WWII spy movie.

  • toastie postie

    She had that years and years ago, don’t think it’s going to happen. Barbra Streisand is doing one. I think this article is not legit. I’m waiting to hear if she will do Shoot Like A Girl

  • Multipass

    Oh okay, I hope they will make this movie, I’ve just ordered the book. I don’t know much about Shoot Like A Girl but I think this book hasn’t even published yet.

  • toastie postie

    The book will come out in March
    here is a link about the movie possiblility

    Thanks for the link, toastie.

  • angela kwok

    aws that is Brenda blah blah blah in IMDB new site…

  • VanityInsecurity

    Either she’s doing Disney movies or War movies that involve human cruelty.. my god woman broaden your range.

  • toastie postie

    😘😘

  • SandyFeet

    I think Disney is really for her children and the interaction that they get. In an interview she said it was easy to do since she was able to bring the children with her to the set. About the ‘war’ movies that involves human cruelty..I think that some of the war movies that are out there today tends to validate war. What Angie brings with these movies are the horrors of war through the eyes of the survivor like Louis Zamperini. In her movie ITLOBAH she wanted to translates the banality of war through genocide (my opinion). With the latest film FTKMF was to bring attention to the forgotten voices of war. They all have Angie’s signature of compassion, love and revival of the human spirit.

  • Marie

    she attracted you to read an article about her!! If you don’t like her why read it>>

  • surreal

    it’s time for you to learn that people have different opinions. if you cannot handle or accept that fact it’s ur prob.

  • AeeJay

    srsly? She use to be a very good actress.. but it seems to me she just takes on roles that are either easy (acting) & the (directing) war films cus of her humanitarianism with refugees, that involve wars. not a big range & boring.

    Excellent comments

    Once you are a ‘good’ actress it does not go away or disappear, maybe she has lost interest in that particular part of her craft (acting) and she is focusing on things that interests her. Nothing wrong with that..her life, her choices. You may find it boring ..but a lot of people, including myself, happen to like and enjoy her offerings. C’est la vie.
