JOLIE, A LIFE “ON THE BARRICADES” - Jolie has certainly specialized in roles where a strong woman appears, whether they are serious films from Marvel or Disney, in perfect harmony with her humanitarian battles, we must not forget that she is an ambassador of Unhc. In the cinema she was very proud of her role as the villain of Maleficent (but that was not bad) and of Thena in Eternals , defined fierce warrior and immortal who can form any weapon from cosmic energy. She certainly is also very fierce in her personal life. In her now relentless fight with ex-husband Brad Pitt, she said that the actor had been 'emotionally and physically violent' even towards his children. The allegations had emerged during the dispute over the sale of theirs charming vineyard in France.

Adding: “ Pablo Larraín is a director I have long admired. To be able to tell more of Maria's story with him, and with a screenplay by Steven Knight, is a dream.' A competition of compliments between her and the director who reciprocated and declared: ' Doing it with Angelina, a courageous and curious artist, is a fascinating opportunity. A real gift.'

THE HEART OF THE FILM - The director's intent will be to tell the whole life of Callas (1923-1977) as a 'tumultuous, beautiful and tragic' journey up to Paris in the 70s. And what better diva than Angelina with her extremely complicated private life and magnetic gaze to interpret it?
