So the negotiations were successful! Angelina Jolie’s first major project following her preventative double mastectomy will take her back behind the camera. She’s going to direct her second film, called ‘Unbroken‘ about Olympian and war hero Lou Zamperini. We heard Angelina was in negotiations last December, but now the deals are sealed. Angelina said in a statement:

“I’ve had the privilege of spending a great deal of time with Louie Zamperini, who is a hero of mine, and now—I am proud to say—a dear friend. I am deeply honored to be telling his extraordinary story, and I will do my absolute best to give him the film he deserves.”

British actor Jack O’Connell has just landed the lead in the movie. This is also why Angelina is in Hawaii: she’s scouting locations for the shoot. Does ‘Unbroken’ sound interesting to you?
