Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie could be teaming up again on Angie’s next film project Africa.
According to The Wrap, Brad is in talks to star as archaeologist Richard Leakey – who campaigned to protect elephants against poachers in the ’80s – in the biopic penned by Oscar-winning scriptwriter Eric Roth. Angelina is set to direct the movie.
The couple met playing spy team Mr & Mrs Smith in 2005 and are set to reunite on screen as husband and wife in Angelina’s latest movie By The Sea, due out later this year.
Angie will re-team with her Unbroken cinematographer Roger Deakins on the project, with shooting due to start in the summer.
She said in a statement when she boarded the project last September: “I’ve felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life, and was taken with Eric’s beautiful script about a man drawn into the violent conflict with elephant poachers who emerged with a deeper understanding of man’s footprint and a profound sense of responsibility for the world around him.”
Brad and Angelina have six children together. Their 10 year-old daughter Zahara was adopted from Ethiopia and their first biological child Shiloh, 8, was born in Namibia.
