Looks like Angelina Jolie is ready to move on — with a new movie, that is!
The actress is clearly in the midst of a very public divorce battle with Brad Pitt, and yet she is still concentrating on her career, too — a difficult position to be in as the media scrum grows louder by the day.

But now, according to Deadline, Angelina has her sights set on her next work project, and that's a starring role in Shoot Like A Girl.
A movie in the works from TriStar productions, Shoot Like A Girl centers on an adaption of the upcoming memoir of Air Force Major Mary Jennings Hegar's accomplishments on the battlefield.
Hegar served three tours of duty in Afghanistan as an elite rescue pilot, even earning a Purple Heart — the real way, unlike certain sleazy politicians — during her service to the country.
At home, she was instrumental in ending the Pentagon's ban on women being allowed to serve in direct combat jobs.

In other words, she sounds like a very strong female character, and perfect for Jolie!
The last time we saw Jolie on screen was in By The Sea, as well as Maleficent.
We know she'll be in an upcoming Maleficent sequel, but appearing in this movie, too, would certainly be a smart choice and definitely a must-see!
