Angelina Jolie Directing Sophomore Film Unbroken! Surprise! It's Not A Comedy!

| Filed under: Brad PittAngelina JolieFilm Flickers

Awww she's not directing herself and future hubby Brad Pitt in Mr. & Mrs. Smith: Part II?! LOLz!

Even though Angelina Jolie recently expressed that she may soon give up show business to focus on motherhood and her UN work concerning international humanitarian issues, it seems she's decided to postpone retirement…

In favor of bringing Laura Hillenbrand best-selling book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption to the big screen!

Jolie will direct the true story of 1936 Olympian Louis Zamperini who survived a plane crash as a U.S. Army Air Forces bomber during World War II, only to then be captured by Japanese forces and imprisoned for the remainder of the war.

Angie recently expressed:

"I read Laura Hillenbrand's brilliant book, and I was so moved by Louie Zamperini's heroic story, I immediately began to fight for the opportunity to make this film. 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."

We can't imagine a better director to helm such a historic, emotional project!

Angelina is obviously passionate about people as evidenced through her extensive humanitarian work AND she's had experience directing a tale of war, conflict, and the human spirit with In The Land of Blood and Honey.

And then the Mr. and Mrs. Smith sequel? K Thanks Bye!

    Oh please! She had a ghost writer for In the Land of Blood and Honey, and a ghost director as well. No way she wrote that script, when she was home with the flu, LOL! And she's being sued by the actual writer. And I don't believe she wrote the above either, handlers wrote it, handlers with some education.

    I think she hopes people will go see the film, but people don't go and see her films. That's the real reason she is retiring, the movie business doesn't consider her to be money making material. She is slowly being forced to retire, hahaha Karma Angelina!
