Angelina Jolie didn't want to direct

Jan 21 2013, 4:07am CST | by

Angelina Jolie never intended to be a movie director.

The Oscar-winning actress - who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt - wrote and directed 'In The Land of Blood And Honey', a love story set during the Bosnian war and says the project stemmed from giving herself ''homework'' to learn more about the history.

She told Total Film magazine: ''I didn't set out to ever become a director or write a script. I was never intending to make a film. I often give myself homework on different things; it's good exercise to get your mind working.''

Angelina - who also works as a UN special envoy - then began writing the film to help raise awareness of the situation.

She added: ''I've been travelling for over 10 years to these conflict and post-conflict zones, and thinking about what happens to people when they live inside these situations, and how their humanity is just stripped apart.

''I spent so much of the time bringing people back - like they're in the refugee camp and returning them to the place where they faced war.

''So I wanted to have a meditation on what this is and how people who are neighbours can turn against each other.''

'In The Land Of Blood And Honey' will open in the UK in 2013.

Oct 24 2014 1:30pm CDT | Source: slash film

Jack O’Connell may well be the next big guy to watch. After his stint on Skins, he showed up in 300: Rise of an Empire and ’71, and received rave notes for his work in Starred Up. Holding the lead role in Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken means that half the families in the US are going to know his face after that film opens at Christmas. And now he might be the man for Terry Gilliam — The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. He would play, according to the most rece ...

Brad Pitt Isn’t Even Perturbed By a Disruption on ‘Between Two Ferns’

Oct 23 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

The latest victim, er, guest for Zach Galifianakis on his fictional talk show Between Two Ferns is Brad Pitt. You could cut the tension with a knife! Will Galifianakis botch his guest’s name? Will he ask awkward questions, and reveal too much about himself in the process? I think you know the answer to this question, but as with any good piece of storytelling, spoilers don’t matter. It’s not what happens, but how. OK, it actually is about what hap ...
