The flick, which will be directed by Taylor Sheridan, will be loosely based on a book by Michael Koryta.

The book follows “a teen in a witness protection program hiding out from a pair of killers in a wilderness skills program while a fire engulfs Montana.”

Those Who Wish Me Dead is set to begin filming after Taylor wraps the second season of Kevin Costner‘s Paramount Network show Yellowstone.

    First!

  • Observer2

    I love this news. As I said on another thread, it’s great to see Angelina working with a writer and director that has an impressive CV. It has been awhile.

  • Passing Through

    Yes, but only because you got here first. LOL!

  • Beedyq

    Great News!!!

    An action thriller…

  • Observer2

    Rude!

    FIRST! LOL

  • Passing Through

    I’m guessing this is going to be a PG-13 movie. Can’t relly see her making something she can’t take the kids to…which is silly, but I’m not a parent either…

  • Patty Smyth

    Excellent news. The more we see Angie onscreen in good roles, the better!

  • toastie postie

    Woo hoo!

  • Observer2

    Then all of our opinions are moot because we’re not parents.

    The hubris of us daring to have any. LOL

    I told to MayaUK that we would have a novelty about a new movie for Jolie soon, I’m very happy with this news.

  • LetMeTranslate

    Thanks bap!!

  • gennline

    Double Woo hoo!

  • Passing Through

    What’s the novelty of it? She’s the bread winner now. She’s gotta work more often than once every 3 years now.

  • bap

    You are welcome LMT!

  • Patty Smyth

    So…from the article on the other thread, it looks like Angie is to start filming this in May. Brad is to start filming WWZ2 in June in Atlanta & Spain (was it?) per Dede. I don’t think Angie’s role would only take a month to shoot, do you? I am very curious as to how they are going to work out their custody situation.

  • http://fasdeangelinajolie.blogspot.com.br/ Fãs de Angelina Jolie

    Her real speech is: I’m also happy for her … No need to thank me.

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    We’ll see in time of course.

    But Angie is shooting in the US. It wouldn’t surprise me if Brad begins his shoot in the US as well, and then switches to the foreign shoots later.

  • Passing Through

    I have no idea what that convoluted first sentence means, but…nothing new there. Always interesting trying to chat at you, Vizzini. Bye now.

    Angelina Jolie will star in thriller written and directed by Taylor Sheridan

    Angelina Jolie is in final negotiations to star in the Those Who Wish Me Dead thriller, a drama that Taylor Sheridan wrote and will direct.

    BRON Studios and Film Rites will be the producers and Creative Wealth Media will finance the robust thriller led by Sheridan, who made his directorial debut in the famous Wind River, whose screenplays include Hell or High Water, Sicario and Sicario following: Day of Soldier. The film will be a modified adaptation of the best-selling author Michael Koryta.

    The script Sheridan is described as a thriller chase in a region burdened by a forest fire in the region of Montana and uses the novel as a starting point.

    The plan is to film in May, after Sheridan complete the second season of his Starstone series, Kevin Costner, which Sheridan produces, writes and directs. No studio involved, but as this is a major undertaking, achieve a fast partnership.

    Garrett Basch, Steven Zaillian and Aaron L. Gilbert (The Mule, Tully, Fences, Leave No Trace) of BRON Studios will produce. Jason Cloth, Creative Wealth Media (Tully, Fences, A Simple Favor), will be executive producers.

    Jolie is represented by UTA; Sheridan is represented by CAA and Elevate Entertainment. CAA Media Finance will be another company in charge of the film ‘s financing.

  • Observer2

    LMAO! FOS trying to speak above her pay grade.

  • Passing Through

    That info from Dede was from a couple of months ago, wasn’t it? There was an article 2 weeks ago saying it wasn’t starting in June. I’m sure somebody saved it…but I didn’t it…

  • Observer2

    They’ll coordinate their schedules like they did last Summer or do what divorced parents do. Or they split the kids for half of the Summer, so to speak.

  • Observer2

    I thought that it just said that the March start date was inaccurate.

  • bap

    Awesome!

  • Beedyq

    Dede did say a couple of months ago BUT the studio said in the last 2 weeks that the WWZ2 filming commencement date has not been determined.

  • Beck

    Special thanks to CAA for their involvement in the financing of Angie’s newest project! lmao

  • Observer2

    ROTFLMAO!

  • Passing Through

    If i wasn’t so lazy now I’d still be saving stuff and I’d look it up… Oh well…back to Candy Crush. LOL!

  • http://fasdeangelinajolie.blogspot.com.br/ Fãs de Angelina Jolie

    Thanks, bap!

  • Patty Smyth

    No, PT,someone had stated in an article that is was to start earlier in March and that was refuted, not the June start date.

  • bap

    You are welcome Fas!

  • Patty Smyth

    You naughty, naughty girl!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Observer2

    You suck. LOL

  • Patty Smyth

    And to CAA for arranging for one of their evil doers, Taylor Sheridan, to write the script and direct Angie

  • Observer2

    He’s an evil doer x’s 2. LOL

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    LOL

  • Passing Through

    OK…but…I did look it up in IMDBPro at they time and they had nothing but a few cast members listed. Which…means nothing other than people involved in the shoot aren’t sharing the info yet. LOL!

    I did go back and look at it again just now and they HAVE updated some info –

    Filming Locations

    3 filming locations

    London, England, UK

    Pinewood Atlanta Studios, 461 Sandy Creek Road, Fayetteville, Georgia, USA

    Aeropuerto Ciudad Real-Central, Ciudad Real, Spain

    This info wasn’t listed when I looked it up about a month ago…

    Story line:
    The newest thriller from Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author When fourteen-year-old Jace Wilson witnesses a brutal murder, he’s plunged into a new life, issued a false identity and hidden in a wilderness skills program for troubled teens. The plan is to get Jace off the grid while police find the two killers. The result is the start of a nightmare. The killers, known as the Blackwell Brothers, are slaughtering anyone who gets in their way in a methodical quest to reach him. Now all that remains between them and the boy are Ethan and Allison Serbin, who run the wilderness survival program; Hannah Faber, who occupies a lonely fire lookout tower; and endless miles of desolate Montana mountains. The clock is ticking, the mountains are burning, and those who wish Jace Wilson dead are no longer far behind.

  • Beedyq

    That would make a workable co-parenting schedule…

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Thanks.

    So, your link specifically mentions March. The one I posted didn’t specifically mention March.

  • Passing Through

    Thanks. I was too lazy to even Google it. LOL! Hey…it’s Monday…

  • LetMeTranslate

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Thanks.

    So, I guess Fincher liked what he saw in Spain.

    And they’re shooting in London as well.

    I would not be surprised if everybody heads to London.
