Brad & Angie Will Marry ‘Sooner Rather Than Later’

The source explains that the stars’ busy schedules have made it difficult to plan the big day, but they want the wedding to happen in the near future.
“Brad has been caught up in production turmoil with his new film World War Z, so there’s been no wedding planning as a result, but Angie has said it will happen sooner rather than later,” the insider explains. “They are all for all intents and purposes married, but it’s become clear that it’s important to them to make it official.”
