Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt To Star In A Movie Together? ‘Maleficent’ Star Angers The Chinese With Comments About Taiwan

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may star in a movie together again, their first since ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith.’ Jolie and Pitt were spotted on a recent 36-hour location scouting trip to Malta, accompanied by only one security guard as they flew via private jet to the island late on Saturday night according to the Daily Mail.

Jolie and Pitt were then taken by private car to a chartered yacht, which ferried them over to the island of Gozo.

Jolie  recently told USA Today about the movie, “It could happen! But it will be a small movie. I wrote something we’ve talked about maybe doing together. Something little and experimental. (John) Cassavetes-style. We have everything we need if we choose to do it. We’re really considering it.”

The movie has been described as ‘set in Europe’ and ‘an exciting new venture,’ by ‘People will not want to miss it,’ a source said.’

Jolie has written an original script and is said to be in the early discussion stage to co-star with her fiance Pitt whom she met on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” according to Deadline.

The Oscar-winning actress is currently working in post-production on her second directorial effort “Unbroken” about the true story of Olympic runner-turned-WWII POW Lou Zamperini.

The Chinese government finally allowed her fiancé, Brad Pitt into the country for the ongoing “Maleficent” press tour despite the fact that he was banned from China after filming “Seven Years In Tibet.” But then Jolie was the one who angered the government.

The Independent reports that the ‘Maleficent’ star recently, “became the subject of controversy in China, after she labelled film director Ang Lee Taiwanese, not Chinese, inadvertently embroiling herself in complex cross-Strait relations.”

Jolie was asked by an AP reporter during a “Maleficent” press conference in Shanghai to name her favorite Chinese director. Her answer, reprinted in the Independent and the Wall Street Journal, was:”I am not sure if you consider Ang Lee Chinese, he’s Taiwanese but he does many Chinese-language films with many Chinese artists and actors, and I think his works and the actors in his films are the ones I am most familiar with and very fond of,” she reportedly said.

“By implying that Taiwan and China are two separate countries, in a moment of excitement, a brilliant woman [Jolie] became a stupid laughing stock,” said one Chinese Weibo user, according to the Independent.
