Jolie and Pitt back at work
Pitt is slated to produce the film. “I hope the film will serve as a lasting remembrance of Danny’s life and the incredible journey Mariane endured to uncover the truth,” said John Lesher, president of Vantage.
The film will be directed by Michael Winterbottom, whose credits include “The Road to Guantanamo” and “Welcome to Sarajevo.”
“I am tremendously proud to join Michael, Angelina, Brad and Mariane in sharing this courageous story with all those that have been touched by it,” Lesher said.
The story explores Pearl’s motivations for being in Karachi, Pakistan, his abduction and the efforts to find him, as well as his eventual murder. Academy Award winner Jolie will also star in the upcoming films “The Good Shepherd,” directed by Robert De Niro, and “Beowulf,” directed by Robert Zemeckis. ‘ Sapa-AFP.
