The actress and ‘First They Killed My Father’ director hopes to go before the cameras in the next few months.
Angelina Jolie says she plans to return to work after taking “over a year off” to deal with a complicated “family situation” following her split with Brad Pitt.
Speaking at the Telluride Film Festival, where her new movie about Cambodia, First They Killed My Father, had a well regarded debut it’s set to be released in select theaters and on Netflix on Sept. 15, Jolie also said she would one day like to give up acting in favor of directing, if possible.
She said she had not yet committed to her next project, though a Maleficent sequel is likely to happen this year.
Jolie sat down Sept. 3, along with Loung Ung, a Cambodian refugee who has been living in America since 1980 and whose book is the basis for Jolie’s movie, which follows Ung’s story as she went through the horrors of the Khmer Rouge in the late 1970s.
