Angelina Jolie to Star in Thriller 'The Kept'

Angelina Jolie has a new movie role lined up!

The actress, director, and humanitarian will star in the cinematic adaptation of the novel, “The Kept,” which is a 2014 book by James Scott.

According to Variety, “The story is set in the winter of 1897, and follows a trio of killers that descends upon an isolated farm in upstate New York. Midwife Elspeth Howell returns home to the carnage: her husband and four of her children, murdered. Before she can discover her remaining son Caleb, alive and hiding the kitchen pantry, another shot rings out over the snow-covered valley. Caleb, who is 12 years old, must tend to his mother until she recovers enough for them to take to the frozen wilderness in search of the men responsible.”

Angelina‘s next film will be Maleficent 2, which won’t be in theaters until May 29, 2020.

  • Ellin

    This sounds like a dream role for Angie. Can’t wait to see who’s directing it or who’s starring alongside her. Hope it starts shooting soon.

  • Ellin

    Hoping for some hot baddies.

  • LetMeTranslate

  • cookiemonster8

    Awesome!!! Go Angie!

  • mahbelle

    can she soar up up and away?

  • Maya

    Angelina has never disappointed me in any roles she acted in.

    Every single character she acts in are strong characters

  • LetMeTranslate

  • mahbelle

    another bomb for angie.

  • cee

  • toastie postie

    Woo Hoo! Yes!!!!!!!!!!! Love this! What great news!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ellin

    Yes no doubt about that. But this story is right up my alley and could become my favorite performance of hers to date. Fingers crosses. Most excited for this.

  • Maya

    Noooo – if the baddies are hot then I might have to support them over Angelina 🀣

  • Pimpcessa

    Looks like Angie got word her “palimony suit” holds no water, and she better start working to pay her 50% of the bills. That 26m mansion is gonna cost her a pretty penny every month, lol.

  • Pimpcessa

    She’s gotta start earning some money somehow. She’s gonna need it.

  • gennline

    Adding to my post from previous thread.

    Wow!
    Angie stretching those acting muscles.πŸ’ͺ
    Such interesting choices she is making.
    Go Angie.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’•
    Hope also that despite how busy she is,she is also doing some writing.
    She needs to write for the theatre.

  • mahbelle

    she can’t write for film (by the sea was so bad even her loonie fans didn’t go see it) so what makes you think she can write for the theatre. she’d embarrass herself if she tried acting on stage.

  • http://fasdeangelinajolie.blogspot.com.br/ FΓ£s de Angelina Jolie

    To the fans of Brad, you have a brand new thread about Pitt, for the peace of mind, stay in his thread.

  • mahbelle

    Yeah, that role in By The Sea was a real award winner.

  • mahbelle

    like she knows you exist.

  • mahbelle

    girl? she’s pushing 50

  • gennline

    Careful girl, Angie will take you down with the baddies!

  • http://fasdeangelinajolie.blogspot.com.br/ FΓ£s de Angelina Jolie

    I think it will be recorded just next year, Jolie has already worked hard this year, after Come Away she will take some vacation time.

  • LetMeTranslate

    We can hope ✌️

  • bermy girl

    This sounds good!!

  • plez

    As I wrote on the other thread this looks like an interesting movie. But the director will be critical to the success.

  • Lady Fucking Valeria, of Rome

    This plot reminds me a bit of the keeping room…although that was civil war era.

  • Maya

    If you look at the production house, they currently have projects with Clint Eastwood & Martin Scorsese.

  • mahbelle

    i wonder if maddox has a girlfriend or plans to go to college. oh that’s right, he’s a “producer.” he’ll probably live with angie forever.

  • Lady Fucking Valeria, of Rome

    I hope it’s not her injured and laying there for most of the film.

  • Maya

    Frontier or history?

  • Felinelilly

    This sounds like a great role for her.

  • Maya

    Haha she won’t have to take me down, I will surrender willingly πŸ˜‚

  • Pimpcessa

    lol

  • Beedyq

    Yes it does sound like that from the info given in the article.

  • Beedyq

    Well DUH… a maybe “gold digger is gonna hang”…LOL

    Ben Affleck’s new girlfriend Shauna Sexton is ‘not giving him the space he needs to heal at rehab’

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk...

  • mahbelle

    but that’s the perfect role for her. she won’t have to pretend to do anything but SUFFER

  • Maya

    Don’t think I have ever seen Angelina taking a passive role like that.

    Sky Captain is the only one I can think off where she was a secondary character.

  • plez

    Maybe need to find cliffnotes on the novel. Because I would hate that too.

  • KS_in_TP

    This is not a woman who can pull off an 1800′s look. She’ll stick out of the period scenary like a sore thumb.

  • Pimpcessa

    I get the feeling that is the plan.

  • Lady Fucking Valeria, of Rome

    Meh–she’s there because he wants her to be. End of. If he can’t tell a 22 year old that he doesn’t want to see her……

  • mahbelle

    she wasn’t the lead in Girl Interrupted or The Good Shepherd. i guess her stans haven’t seen or her movies.

  • KS_in_TP

    Has he ever spent one day in a proper school? I strongly suspect Maddox can’t hack formal education and is likely incredibly spoiled and difficult.

  • mahbelle

    she can do haughty. she’s good at haughty.

  • mahbelle

    oh i’m sure he’s a Class A brat. i don’t think any of their kids can function in the real world.

  • Orianna Petroy

    Hi AA !This was my point!Stop stealing from me,LOL!
