Universal Pictures has acquired worldwide rights to Angelina Jolie’s next film project, “By The Sea,” which will be written and directed by Jolie and star herself and Brad Pitt.

It marks the first time the duo has appeared onscreen together since 2005’s “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.”

Jolie and Pitt will also produce the project, which is said to focus on a couple’s relationship.

“I am very happy to continue my relationship with Donna and the entire Universal team as I finish “Unbroken” and begin work on “By The Sea,” Jolie said. “They have created a very special place for storytellers, and I look forward to the continued passion and support they have provided to me as a filmmaker.”

Jolie is currently in post-production on “Unbroken,” an epic drama directed and produced by Jolie based on the true story of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini and adapted from author Laura Hillenbrand’s bestseller. Universal will release Unbroken on Christmas Day, 2014.

She is repped by UTA and Media Talent Group and Pitt is repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment.

    Good blog post. I definitely appreciate this website. Keep it up!

    They didn’t have “real class” anymore than these people do nowadays. The media just didn’t chronicle their every “Walk of Shame” or late night “Stumbling out of the club”. Bogie whom you loved so much, used his wealth and fame to trap a VERY VERY YOUNG Lauren Bacall, a relationship that would raise eyebrows were it conducted TODAY. Imagine if Alec Baldwin did a movie with ELLE FANNING a TEENAGER and after it announced that they were “Dating”.

    Like most morons of the Tea Party, KKK or Republican Party who hearken back to the “Days of Yore” and fill their stupid heads with visions of sugar plums of days past, they really have no idea how things really were in those days. They see the world through the lens of their denial.

      You are out of your mind. I am a fiscal conservative and I am nothing of which you described. I am not
      that ignorant to not watch a film or a liberal actor because of their political views. I like all of the
      classics and the new films.
      Further more, I am not a racist or a homophobe. My late husband was the first white writer/record
      producer for Motown records. He wrote many hits for the Jackson Five and Diana Ross.

      BTW… I am not associated with the Tea Party. With that said there are blacks that belong to it.
      I live in Wash. State and I voted for Gay rights. Before I started posting this, I just got a call
      from a long time friend that is gay. There are gays in the Republican party FYI.

      Please stop stereotyping people that you do not know.

    You aren’t important enough to talk to.

  5. Danne says:

    I will definitely see this movie.

    I’d take direction from Angie!

  8. Angiegirl says:

    Get over it! There are many, many places you can get married. It’s NOT WHERE you get married; its WHO YOU MARRY that counts…dumbo~I am so tired of these ‘Bridezilla’s”….wait till they marry the guy…is HE in for a big freakin’ surprise…Hate manipulative women who need to GET THEIR WAY AT ALL COSTS…WHO CARES??? No one. Get over yourself…

    • Maria Arpa says:

      Hello, I’m sorry you feel like this and thank you for your comment. Of course there are many places I could get married and I understand your irritation. The problem for me is that invitations are sent, flights are booked, hotels booked, arrangements in place so changing things now is not so simple. I hope that offers you a better explanation of why I’m making this request.

    If they ever make a porn film, it would be the only one I ever watched. She is probably the sexiest woman on the planet, even w/tattoos, he’s just OK.. but it would be a good show… think Mr. and Mrs. Smith w/o clothes…

  10. A wise man says:

    Angelina has to be one of the most talented people on this earth. It seems like everything she does turns to gold! She can do anything!

  11. Looker says:

    If she can direct, it tells me it doesn’t take much talent to do that job.

  12. ploome says:

    she is so overrated

  13. harry georgatos says:

    A relationship movie? Boring. Hopefully there will be men in black chasing after them, putting false memories in them and taken into alternate dimensions. As for an introspective dysfunctional relationship movie I’ll rather chew on razor blades thank you very much!

  14. Fre says:

    I hope she did justice to ‘Unbroken’.
    From what I’ve seen, it looks good however I hope she touched the entire story with justice.

  15. Seeya Tomara says:

    Nothin’ new for good ol’ Brad!

    • Angiegirl says:

      Manipulation and control are her ‘specialty’…and, oh, spending wads and wads of cash she made on violent, disgusting movies with everyone always getting killed….Is this really the ‘legacy’ she wants to leave us and her kids? I, for one, am not impressed…there’s a ‘screw’ loose somewhere with that one…And, Brad, good luck. She is a she-devil in disguise as Mother Goose!

      • Gie says:

        Please stop reading tabloids… and stop hating somebody who do good and helping others and the divorced of Brad with your idol JEN happened 10 years ago.. LET IT GO ALREADY!!
