It's been nearly a decade since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie met on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith and began one of the most obsessed-over relationships in Hollywood history.
To mark the 10-year anniversary of Brangelina, the pair will once again team up for a project, albeit under very different circumstances. In By The Sea, not only will Jolie star alongside Pitt, but she's also set to direct. Not much is known in terms of plot, but Universal Studios described it as an "intimate, character-driven drama." Jolie also wrote the script, which falls in line with comments she made at a UK press conference for her most recent film, Maleficent.
"I've had a wonderful career and I'm very happy to have had all the opportunities I've had to tell stories and work for as long as I have," she said. "I would like to focus more on writing and directing."
Jolie's first directorial effort was the 2011 Bosnian War drama In The Land of Blood and Honey, which earned her a Golden Globe nod for Best Foreign Film. She followed that up with Unbroken, the upcoming biopic about Olympic runner and WWII hero Louis Zamperini, which is set for release on Christmas Day.
Pitt and Jolie had some intense on-screen chemistry in the campy Mr. & Mrs. Smith. It will be interesting to see if a 10-year relationship and a growing family has dampened that spark. (Time)
