There might just be another movie star in the Jolie-Pitt family! According to a new report, Angelina Jolie has cast her 14-year-old son, Maddox, in her next directorial project, ‘First They Killed My Father.’ Find out more about the mother-son collaboration here!
Now that Angelina Jolie, 40, has finished By the Sea — her second film with hubby Brad Pitt, 51 — she’s ready to bring more family into her work life! For her next project, she’s directing a Netflix biography called First They Killed My Father, and she has allegedly cast her son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 14, in a role. This is not only Maddox’s opportunity to prove he has picked up the same acting chops as his famous parents, but also his chance to show the world who he really is!
Angelina’s project is an amazing choice for Maddox’s breakout role, as the movie is based in Cambodia, where Maddox was born. The film is a bit of a darker one, centered around the deadly reign of ruler Khmer Rough in the 1970s, but a source told OK! magazine that Maddox is just excited to be in a movie!
“[Maddox] has been desperate to get into acting,” the insider told the outlet. “This is a dream come true for him. He’s read the book the film’s based on and speaks the language. It’s a perfect fit.”
Although First They Killed My Father would be the first major role for Maddox, he has already had a little experience working alongside his parents — Maddox actually had a nonspeaking role as a zombie in Brad’s sci-fi flick World War Z! This also isn’t the first time Angelina has worked with one of their children, either. Brangelina’s daughter Vivenne, 7, played 5-year-old Aurora in Maleficent in 2014. It seems like Brad and Angelina’s incredible careers are rubbing off on their kids, and we certainly don’t mind!
No further details about the movie have been revealed, but if Maddox really is starring in Angelina’s film, we can’t wait to see them work together. How amazing would it be to see another Jolie-Pitt become a star?!
