Deadline reports that Jolie is in serious talks right now to star in a dramatic thriller that would be shot next spring. The film is said to be “rooted in true scientific elements,” but other than that, there is nothing known about the project.
The large-scale film is still untitled, but it would be Jolie’s next acting gig. She’s currently working on turning herself into a director and producer. She will be teaming up with Ridley Scott to film an “historical epic” about Gertrude Bell, but Besson’s project would shoot before that.
Besson’s company EuropaCorp has developing the project and will be co-financing the film. Of course, negotiations are already in place to find a studio for domestic distribution.
