Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Teaming on Movie for First Time Since ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have chosen to work on a film together for the first time in a decade, launching development on an untitled script that she has written.

It’s not yet clear who will act, produce or direct the project.

The duo have acted together on only one other film — 2005’s action comedy “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” which grossed nearly $500 million worldwide — but have remained busy in subsequent years.

Pitt won a best picture Oscar as a producer on “12 Years a Slave” through his Plan B production company this year and will be seen next in Sony’s World War II actioner “Fury,” opening in November. Plan B signed a first-look deal with New Regency earlier this year after departing from its longtime home of Paramount.

Jolie directed and produced the World War II drama “Unbroken,” which Universal will open on Christmas.

The couple have six children and have generally avoided working on movies at the same time.
