Angelina Jolie Talks About Future Projects

Actress Angelina Jolie has been linked to a ton of upcoming projects, but recently Celebstalk found out that one of these big projects in the works has been a rumor!

Apparently there has been a lot of buzz about Angelina portraying famous icon Marilyn Monroe in the new film version of the novel “The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog”.

However recently, at the premiere of Jolie’s action flick Salt in London, when asked, the actress had no knowledge of the rumor at all!

“This is a new rumor,” she told USMagazine.com on Monday. “It sounds very nice-I just haven’t gotten the phone call yet. You guys will probably know before I do.”

Angie’s rep also confirmed the news with the LA Times saying, “Angelina is not attached to this project.”

So what IS Angelina doing right now?

Well, while she’s not out promoting Salt, Jolie is working on her directorial debut with a film (that she also wrote and will co-produce) about a love story set during the Bosnian War. The film will follow a Serbian man and a Bosnian woman who meet on the eve of the war and will show the effects the war has on their relationship, according to an announcement the production company, BK Films, recently made.

So far, Angelina isn’t expected to star in the movie and we have heard no new rumors about her handsome hubby, Brad Pitt, starring in the flick either.

No news yet on when this movie is set to start production, but we can tell you that The Tourist, where Angelina costars with Johnny Depp, will be hitting screens sometime in December!

Now it’s your turn, Celebstalkers! Tell us what you think about Angie’s newest venture!


Brad Pitt Sentences Those Responsible for BP Oil Spill to Death

Recently mega-moug Brad Pitt spoke up about what he thinks of the people responsible for BP’s massive oil spill.

So what would Brad do if he was in charge? He says he would have considered having the people responsible for the BP oil spill executed if he was in power and while he usually opposes capital punishment, he would make an exception if he could.

FOX News quoted Brad while he was filming his part for Spike Lee’s new documentary If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise, which is being made to show the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina as it comes to it’s fifth anniversary.

When asked about his comment, Brad Pitt, who has been pretty active in helping rebuild parts of New Orleans, said “I was never for the death penalty before-I am willing to look at it again.”

If you are interested in seeing Brad in Spike Lee’s documentary, you can watch it on HBO Tuesday night.

So, Celebstalker’s, what do you think about Brad’s comments?

Do you think Angelina Jolie agrees??

Do you wish that Brad was in charge?

Brad and Angie Win Tabloid Settlement

Hollywood mega-couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, were awarded an undisclosed amount of cash Thursday after suing a British tabloid who claimed the couple were splitting up.

In January, The News of the World reported that the couple had planned to separate and that they had already come to an agreed custody situation with their six children and planned to divide the assets that the newspaper estimated the couple had made.

The couple fought back and said that the claims were false and demanded a retraction of the story as well as an apology.

Solicitor Keith Schilling told the High Court in London that he accepted the fact that the reports were “false and intrusive” and agreed to publish an apology.

The paper will also pay the couples costs and damages, which they of course plan to donate to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

So do you think the verdict was fair, Celebstalkers?

Do you think that they really do donate all the money they win to their charity? If not, what do you think they use it for? Cookies? Maybe a nice lunch? Let us know what you think Celebstalkers!


Angelina Jolie Dropkicks Hollywood’s Gender Rules

It’s been said for decades that Tinseltown is a “man’s world”. Well boys, meet the lady that just put Tinseltown on it’s ass. Angelina Jolie has been a mega star for years, has been a humanitarian, settled down with one of the hottest mougars of our time and now, she can add one more amazing feat to her resume: Angelina is taking home a cool $20 million to star in one of the summers hottest action movies, Salt, which was originally written for a man. Not just any man, either. Word has it that the writers for this mega action packed flick were seeking out some of the hottest male action stars in the biz with credentials matching that of Tom Cruise. So, when Jolie stepped into the role, they rewrote the script to accommodate a woman.

This isn’t her first action role, but it definitely takes the cake as being on of her biggest. We all remember her starring roles in blockbusters such as Laura Croft: Tomb Raider, Wanted and Mr. and Mrs. Smith, opposite Brad Pitt. Jolie has always shown that she has had the forcefulness needed to step into the more physical roles, but while there have been women who have dabbled with action films in the past, such as Jennifer Garner in Alias, Daredevil and Elektra, Kate Beckinsale in Underworld and Jessica Alba in Fantastic Four and Dark Angel, none of them have proven their ability in this genre quite like Angelina Jolie.

“It’s definitely unusual that a female has become an action star,” said Salt’s producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura. “But it’s a funny thing. She’s not a female action star; she’s an action star. She’s really the first female to transcend gender. I don’t think it’s occurred before.”

In the past ten years alone, Jolie has starred in five action-packed films totaling nearly $1.5 billion combined worldwide.

Following Salt, which opens in theaters next Friday, Jolie’s next big release will be The Tourist, in which she stars alongside mega-mougar Johnny Depp, and her character in that film, Elise, will also be featuring some action packed scenes. Jolie will be paid generously for this role as well, another $20 million up front, plus a good share of the profit as well as other benefits, which can only be matched by two other actors in the world.

“The fact that she can is in the entertainment industry and can approach a male salary is an anomaly,” says director of women’s and gender studies at the University of San Diego, Lori Watson. “Maybe she can command a salary, but she can’t break through the expectations that women are supposed to be beautiful and sensualized and fit a certain mold and behave a certain way.”

With the prospect of many more action films in her future, including sequels to Wanted, Salt and possibly even The Tourist, you would think you could plan to see Jolie on the big screen for many years to come, even considering her choice to cut her work load down to one film per year. And with talks of her starring as Cleopatra, Malificent in a Sleeping Beauty spin-off and others still in the works, there should be lots of different genres for her fans, but what if Jolie just walked away?

“I’m very, very grateful, it’s a fun job. It’s a luxury,” she said in a recent interview in Vanity Fair. “But I don’t think I’ll do it much longer.”

So who would fill her shoes if she called it quits? Could anyone?

“I don’t see anybody right now,” di Bonaventura says. “Will there be more female action heroes? There will be another one, yeah, I believe that. You look at these things as a progression. First, they tried to mimic what a male action star was. And now with Angie, you’re just letting her be what she is. We’ve gotten away from that male classification of what is an action star. And that means that will open possibilities for somebody else. You just needed somebody to break the ground.”


Is Angelina Jolie Quitting Acting for Good?

 

In an interview in the newest issue of Vanity Fair , Oscar-winning actress, mother of six (Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax, Vivienne, and Knox) and lauded humanitarian, Angelina Jolie states that she may be ready to soon give up acting for good.

Says Jolie, “It is not the most important thing in my life…I don’t think I’ll do it much longer.”  In the same interview Angelina Jolie talks about all of her children’s distinct personalities. She describes her first adopted son Maddox as a “real intellectual.”

Angelina Jolie also calls adopted daughter Zahara “elegant and well-spoken. Of her eldest daughter fathered by Brad Pitt, Shiloh, Jolie states that she is “one of the goofiest…people you’ll ever meet and that she is a real tom-boy.

So is Angelina Jolie giving up acting to have more children?

When asked if she and her gorgeous husband Brad Pitt plan on having more kids, Angelina Jolie answered that although they are not opposed to the idea, they want to make sure that they can give the six children they do have the attention that they need.

It seems that what Angelina Jolie is really saying is that she is prepared to put parenting first in her life. If that means giving up on acting, then she’s prepared to do it. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are currently both A-list actors who are also two of the best paid actors in the business.

Due in parts to their ridiculous good-looks, successful acting careers, the scandal surrounding Brad’s jump from Jennifer Aniston to Angelina Jolie, and their interesting family life, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie get their fair share of media coverage.

Perhaps Angelina Jolie thinks that quitting acting may take some of the media attention off of her family, in addition to giving her more time to spend with her children.

So what do you think celebstalkers? Will Angelina Jolie quit acting?

The full story is included in the new Vanity Fair that hits shelves this Friday!


Angelina Jolie Heads to Haiti

UN Goodwill Ambassador (and mega star), Angelina Jolie, traveled to Haiti this past weekend to visit the SOS Children’s Village in Santo, near Port au Prince, where close to 500 dislocated children are cared for.

Just hours after her visit to Ecuador, she arrived to bring the children in the SOS house toys and gifts, as well as spend the night evaluating their living conditions and treatment.

“That is why I like to visit and support the SOS Children’s Villages in the world,” she says, “because I have seen that the children are growing up in a safe and loving environment.”

There was no word on whether or not Jolie was accompanied by her long time love, actor Brad Pitt. Could baby number seven be in the cards for the couple? Guess we will have to see what happens!


Angelina Jolie to be a Sexy Cleopatra

Beyonce might have been the first film vixen to bear the moniker “Sexy Cleopatra” but it looks like an even sexier Cleopatra may soon grace the big screen. Angelina Jolie is rumored to be at the head of the running to play the scandalous, smart, and shrewd Queen of the Nile in a film version of the  life based on the popular book by Stacy Schiff “Cleopatra: A Life”.

USA Today has reported that the producer Scott Rudin has bought the rights to the work and that he wants Angelina Jolie in the starring role.

Will Angelina Jolie be able to bring the proper feel to the role of a woman who ruled a country and was loved by both Julius Caesar and Marc Antony? She certainly has the looks to portray the sexy Macedonian..we’ll see how the rest goes!

This makes us wonder who they’ll cast to play Marc Antony…there are already speculations that Mr. Pitt may be cast. PLEASE NO! As much as we love Brad in battle gear, it would be so snoozerific to see him in the role. Been there done that with RBurt and LTay like so forever ago.

So who do YOU think should be cast to play the Antony to Angelina’s Cleo?

Brad Pitt? (if you choose this you suck)

Gerard Butler?

Bradley Cooper?

Sean Bean?

Someone else?
