She made quite the directorial debut with “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” and Angelina Jolie took every detail very seriously in the film.
The “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” starlet explained that she originally did the movie, based on a love story against the backdrop of the Bosnian War, in the original language.
However, once that was wrapped, Ang ended up filming an additional version of the flick, this time in English. And both are available on DVD and Blu-ray.
As for future gigs, Jolie has signed on to play the titular role in the upcoming movie “Maleficent.” "It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that’s good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you’re saying they should be a villain. [Maleficent] is actually a great person, but she’s not perfect. She’s far from perfect... In general, it’s a very good message to say, ‘let’s look at something from the other side.’”
“But then also, what our challenge will be — and the script writer [Linda Woolverton] has already cracked it — is not to simplify it, not to just reverse the story but tell a bigger story that doesn’t point the finger [at Princess Aurora] either. It doesn’t flip it."
