Get ready for Mr. and Mrs. Smith part two! It’s been over nine years since fans watched Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt appear together in a movie, but according to new reports, the two are going to be co-stars once again. The two mega stars are said to be appearing together in a film which Jolie wrote. There are also reports that Jolie will not only act in the film, but direct it as well.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith was filmed in 2005 and it was a huge hit with audiences. The spy movie brought Pitt and Jolie together onscreen for the first and only time. The film not only received buzz because of its two huge stars, but also because of rumors that the two co-stars were more than just friends.
At the time the movie was shot, Pitt had been married to Friends star Jennifer Aniston for five years. Jolie was single and had just adopted her first child. The two stars denied any involvement during the movie, even though there was much speculation about the obvious chemistry. Shortly after the movie premiered, Pitt and Aniston divorced. Awhile later, Pitt and Jolie were photographed on a beach in Kenya together with her son, Maddox, confirming the rumors that they were a real life couple.
Jolie later admitted that she fell in love with Pitt while shooting the spy movie. The actress commented in an interview that not many people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love. Aniston responded that she thought Jolie’s statement was uncool and inappropriate. The three-way love triangle was plastered across the front pages of magazine for years. However, since the messy situation, each star has moved on with their life. Jolie and Pitt are engaged and have six children together. Aniston is also engaged to actor Justin Theroux.
It is unknown what genre this new movie is, but only that it will feature Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt together again, and was written by the actress many years ago. When asked if the movie will be funny, Jolie commented that she wasn’t sure how funny the two of them are, or if they would actually be playing a couple. The actress says that sometimes it is better if a real life couple does not play a couple onscreen.
This is will not the first time Jolie has directed a film. The actress is currently finishing up her project Unbroken, which she directed and co-wrote. Jolie also directed and produced In the Land of Blood and Honey. The actress earned a nomination for Outstanding Directing from the NAACP Image award, even though the reviews of the film were mixed, but mostly favorable.
Although many details about the film being kept a secret, the general plot of the movie is known. The new movie is said to follow a married couple, who is having troubles in their relationship. The couple tries to save their relationship by going together on one last vacation. Even if Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie might not play the married couple onscreen, it will still be nice to see them appearing together in a movie again.
