There may have been some controversy surrounding the release of MR. AND MRS. SMITH, as the chemistry between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie was undeniable. They’ve moved on to other projects since but I suppose it was only a matter of time before the two were brought together again in hopes of striking that sickly sweet box office gold a second time. For round 2, it looks to be under the guiding hand of Angelina Jolie herself.
Angelina Jolie first tried her hand at directing in 2011 with IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY. While that project didn’t garner too much praise, her sophomore effort, UNBROKEN, recently showcased a trailer that has quite a few people talking. At the very least, it looks to be an inspiring story about a real life hero. Details are pretty slim on Jolie’s third film, BY THE SEA, except that it will also be written by her, star her and her beau, and is a character-driven drama.
