What Films Are Next for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt After Their Split
The couple, who met while starring in 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith,' each have several upcoming projects that they'll produce or star in.
After two years of marriage and a nearly 10-year relationship, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are divorcing.
The couple, who met while starring in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, have only worked on one other project together: the 2015 drama By the Sea, which Jolie directed. However, both Jolie and Pitt have continued to work as actors and producers (and, for Jolie, as a director) throughout their relationship.
Here's a primer on their upcoming projects:
Angelina Jolie: The actress has wrapped work on the foreign language feature film First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, which Netflix will release. She directed and produced the film, which centers on Cambodian human rights activist Loung Ung, who recounts the horrors she suffered under the rule of the deadly Khmer Rouge. it is based on Ung’s memoir of the same name. Jolie also is a producer on the upcoming animated film The Breadwinner from animated powerhouse Gkids.
On the acting front, Jolie will reprise her titular role for the Maleficent sequel. Disney has not yet set a release date or hired a director for the follow-up to the 2014 hit, but Linda Woolverton is writing the script. Jolie was at one time in talks for Kenneth Branagh's Murder on the Orient Express, but a deal did not get made.
Brad Pitt: The actor continues to be a busy producer through his Plan B productions. His upcoming producer credits include Moonlight, which was a breakout at the Toronto International Film Festival, The Lost City of Z starring Charlie Hunnam and the HBO Lewis and Clark TV miniseries.
Pitt will next be seen on the big screen in Robert Zemeckis’ Allied opposite Marion Cotillard. The film, set in 1942, follows an intelligence officer in North Africa who encounters a female French Resistance fighter. It is slated for release in November. He will star in Netflix's military satire War Machine, directed by David Michod. Pitt also is attached to a World War Z sequel, which David Fincher could possibly direct.
