WTF: Angelina gives Brad directions?

WTF: Angelina gives Brad directions?

Jolie directs her first feature... starring Brad Pitt.
Nov 25, 2010

This week, Angelina Jolie became blog fodder once again when pictures from the set of her unnamed directorial debut surfaced, but were eclipsed by speculation that her Hollywood husband Brad Pitt has an acting part in the politically-charged Bosnian love story.

Given Jolie’s infatuation with politics and humanitarianism beyond the bright lights of Hollywood, her directorial debut has potential to produce an intelligent drama with real emotion, possibly similar to her role in 2007’s A Mighty Heart or her work for Eastwood’s 2008 film Changeling and hopefully as confident as this year’s SALT . On the other hand, we still remember the last time Brangelina burned up the big screen together in 2005 and subjected us all to the “mediocre-but-tolerable” Mr.&Mrs. Smith

If you have been to the movies in the last ten years, chances are you’ve seen an Angelina Jolie film: she is the spawn of actor John Voight who out-cheesed Nicholas Cage in Gone in 60 Seconds, who really married-then-divorced Bad Santa himself, and who then went on to become both the best AND worst female character adapted-to-film-from-a-video-game with Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, respectively…imagine the ride we might take given Jolie in the director’s chair. WTF?!

So I’ll just put it out there, is Angelina Jolie ready for a directorial debut? And, do we even care if Brad Pitt is in her movie or not?
