Angelina Jolie to Direct Another Film
Posted by Adam
ANGELINA Jolie is set to direct her second film.
The actress is in talks about helming Unbroken, based on the story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympian-turned-World War II prisoner of war, according to Deadline.
“I was so moved by Louie Zamperini’s heroic story, I immediately began to fight for the opportunity to make this film,” Jolie said in a statement.
“Louie is a true hero and a man of immense humanity, faith and courage. I am deeply honored to have the chance to tell his inspiring story.”
Adapted from Seabiscuit author Laura Hillenbrand‘s Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption, the feature film will tell the real-life tale of American Olympic distance runner Louis Zamperini, who was captured and imprisoned by the Japanese Navy during World War II.
Unbroken will be the second film directed by Jolie. The 37-year-old — who’s engaged to Brad Pitt — made her debut in 2011′s In The Land Of Blood And Honey.
It’s been claimed that Jolie is planning to have lots of plastic surgery before she and Brad walk down the aisle.
“Angelina believes she looks old and she’s tired of it,” said an insider.
“She’s freaking out over the frown lines on her forehead, her jowls and a few pockets of fat that she’s spotted on her tummy, butt and thighs.
“But this isn’t really about weight. Angie’s main worry is that her body is starting to sag, which she absolutely hates.
“She can’t live with the idea of walking down the aisle with wrinkles and lumps, so she’s determined to get all the treatments she needs before the big day.
“Angelina has been very depressed about her looks.
“She’s consulted cosmetic surgeons in Europe about various touch-ups and high-end laser treatments.
“She’s also looked into getting liposuction on her butt and thighs as well as having fat sucked out of her belly – because believe it or not, even Angelina has developed middle-age spread!
“Angelina believes she can look as youthful as she did in her Lara Croft days for her wedding. And she’s willing to spend whatever it takes to achieve that.”
