Angelina Jolie Quits Directing Job For $110 Million Movie Starring Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce drama is getting messier by the day.
According to new reports, the 41-year-old actress has decided to quit the role of director for a movie which also features Brad Pitt. The estranged couple were set to start work on a $110million biopic film titled Africa sometime next year, however Angelina is said to have opted out of the whole project.
Reports are Brad Pitt, on the other hand, still expressed interest in acting in the movie but Angelina has made it clear she no longer wants any kind of relationship with him anymore.
The movie, which is based on the life of renowned paleo-archaeologist and conservationist Dr. Richard Leakey, was reportedly a passion project for the couple and they even established a relationship with Richard Leakey who gave them his approval for the production.
Africa was initially set to go into production after Jolie and Pitt wrapped their movie By The Sea, which was the couple’s highly anticipated second collaboration together after Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Angelina filed for divorce from Brad on Monday, 19 September, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple were together for 12 years.
