Uh oh! Angelina really wants NOTHING to do with Brad Pitt, as she’s shockingly quit a passion project the two had lined up together. She was set to direct him in the $110 epic film ‘Africa’ and has now pulled out of the project after filing for divorce from the actor. Keep reading for the details.
The fallout from Angelina Jolie‘s bombshell divorce filing from Brad Pitt, 52, is affecting more than just their personal relationship. Now she’s quit the sweeping drama that the two have been championing for years! She was set to direct the $110 million film Africa, about renown paleo-archaeologist and conservationist Dr. Richard Leakey, 71, who would be played by Brad. But a new report says she’s just dropped the film like she dropped her husband!
“This movie has been a nightmare to get off the ground from the beginning. Until the last few weeks Angelina was resolute in her intent to get it made, but now she doesn’t want to direct it at all,” a source close to producer Jon Peters, who was working on the film along with the couple told Heat Street.
“Brad Pitt was still interested in acting in the movie — for him it was Seven Years in Tibet set in Africa and he wasn’t ready to give up on it. But Angelina now doesn’t want to have any kind of relationship with him, personal or professionally,” they add. Wow, after working so hard all these years to get the epic project done, she’s now totally walking away because of Brad. Man, when Angelina decides to end things, she definitely goes scorched Earth about it.
The film was a passion project for the couple, as they are close to Richard and the legendary conservationist gave his approval to her vision of it. But now it remains to be seen if his incredible story will get the Hollywood treatment, as Brad needs to find someone new to helm to project. Maybe it’s for the best, as when Angie directed Brad in her last effort By The Sea, the film got slammed with awful reviews.
